"More speed and memory for your smartphone"

Overview

Ashampoo Droid Optimizer is an Android cleaning and optimizing app. It can help the user to improve the smooth running of the Android device by cleaning up after lazy apps that take up too much RAM and storage space. The app can terminate both foreground and background apps that are causing an issue or drain too many system resources. Browsing history can be removed to prevent access by other users who are curious to see what sites have been visited lately.

The cleaning processes extend to emptying application cache files, temporary files and other clutter that reduces the free space available on the device.

The system can also be configured to turn off non-critical features like Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity at night time in order to preserve what remaining battery life there is.
