NEW DELHI: Mobile internet and services firm UCWeb has launched UC Cleaner, a booster app to optimize Android’s performance and improve smartphone experience.
Having accumulated half a million monthly active users in its beta-test period, UC Cleaner is the latest app from UCWeb’s mobile app portfolio for international markets, which includes UC Browser.
UC Cleaner is able to keep its size to less than 1.5MB. It can free up memory (RAM) and close apps that slow down a device. Its feature can also disable auto-start apps in non-rooted devices feature and targets many devices that come along with pre-installed apps, a release said.
UC Cleaner is able to analyze battery, data and storage usage and help users identify and delete resource-intensive, rarely-used apps and junk files that take up phone storage space.
James Wong, Product Manager, UC Cleaner says, “As smartphones become ubiquitous, we are highly dependent on cleaner apps to manage usage. However, many Android cleaner apps themselves are large in size and resource-intensive, which is contrary to their original intention. UC Cleaner is compact in size but does not compromise on functionality. With UC Cleaner, we’re taking a new approach to boosting performance while minimizing extra burden on the system.”
