CNET Editors' review
PhoneClean for Mac quickly and intuitively analyzes and rids your iOS device of hidden temp, cache, and other junk files, thus freeing more space on the hard drive. The program's intuitive interface and snappy performance make it a wise choice for any iOS user.
PhoneClean opens with a clean, straightforward interface. Freeing some additional space on a mobile device is done in three basic steps that are explained well with short text and graphics. The first step is to connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to your Mac. We used our iPad 4 for testing purposes and our device made the connection without any issues. Once the mobile device is connected, another window pops up, depicting the capacity of its hard drive and the amount of used and free space. The program is able to scan for hidden temp and junk files, cookie and script files, cache and offline files, and sync-failed media files; and by default, all four scanning options are checked. Clicking a large blue button starts the process. During our scan the results came positive for cookie and script files, as well as for cache files. The program estimated that it could save us around 370MB of disk space. Again, clicking on a large blue button starts the cleanup. The cleanup process for our junk files completed in less than 10 seconds. After the process completed, there was a pop-up window directing us to share our experience online.
PhoneClean for Mac offers an excellent solution for reclaiming storage space and freeing your mobile device from the unnecessary junk files that pile up over time. This intuitive and easy-to-use application is suitable for any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch owner.
PhoneClean is an all-new iPhone Cleaning App now works for both Windows and Mac. It is your only choice to reclaim storage space on iPhone, iPad, iPod and all iOS devices ever made. Remove iPhone hidden temp files and create your iPhone space free. When processing complex calculations and data exchanges, iOS Apps will produce temporary files, which will be rarely used again once they fulfilled the statistical purposes. Some Apps will leave them behind even risking swallowing free space on your devices. Now with PhoneClean, you can quickly find and remove them to reclaim more free space on your iPhone.
The cache and off-line files are created to speed up files access temporarily but over time they may occupy over 1 Gigabyte space absurdly. PhoneClean safely deletes them so as to slim your Apps and keep your iPhone iPad running fast. The speedup could be fairly significant on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. It is recommended to let PhoneClean clean up the cookie and script files on your iPhone before backing it up to iTunes or iCloud. To prevent the leak or abuse use of these personal information, PhoneClean ensures the safety of your property and privacy. The failed iTunes syncs will generate temporary or corrupt media files too. Now through scanning and comparison, PhoneClean quickly strikes out these non-associated media files to bring up more free space for you.
What's new in this version: Version 3.1.0 was a milestone release with dozens of exciting and innovative new features.

"Does not work"
Version: PhoneClean 3.1
Nice interface, highlights what is being scrubbed
Had no impact on the freeing up storage space on my phone. Says it cleaned 1.5Gb but my phone shows no change in storage consumed.
Free to download but it's demo only, have to pay to actually get it to do anything.
Don't waste your money.
"3.0 Update Killed Product for Me"
Version: PhoneClean 3.1
When product was 2.0, every feature worked for free.
iMobie required folks to update and now with version 3.0+ you have to pay to use even the simplest of features.
Deceptive updating practices made me pissed off. I shouldn't have to pay for something that was free for so long.
