Editors' Review

When it comes to clearing the cache and RAM and removing junk files, Piriform's CCleaner for Android proves to be as apt as its desktop equivalent. Despite its name, it's not only a cleaner but also a quick app uninstaller and a basic monitoring tool for storage space, RAM, temperature, and battery.


Selective cleaning: CCleaner for Android breaks down the junk data it detects into cache, empty folders, downloads, thumbnails, Google Play history, Google Maps cache, and more, allowing you to easily choose which to remove, unlike other cleaners, which indiscriminately remove all data. What's more, through the app's Settings, you can customize what kinds of data are analyzed.

Quick clean widget: This new release includes a snappy home-screen widget that enables you to clean your cache, clipboard, Web browser history, and processes without having to launch the app. The design of the widget is just like that of the app: clean, well-ordered, and uncluttered.

Ad-free experience: Most other contenders feature banners, promote certain apps, or at least send you constant notifications about upgrades or other products. This cleaner is entirely ad-free.


Not as fast as other cleaners: CCleaner takes a while to analyze your device before showing you how it can free space.

App manager cannot remove all apps: Although the built-in app manager shows you the default applications that came with your OS alongside normal apps, it won't let you uninstall most of them. Other cleaners just don't show default apps that cannot be removed, sparing you the trouble of a "failed to uninstall" message.

Bottom Line

A capable cleaner and basic monitoring tool, CCleaner for Android does a good job at saving storage space and removing files that may slow down your device. You may prefer it over other, speedier cleaners because of its lack of ads and selective deletion.
