  • If you ever uninstalled an app on Android, then you might have noticed some of them tend to leave files behind that you have to remove manually. Then there are  logs, crash reports, debug files and temporary files you don’t really need and take up space. There are tools on the Store to get the job done in this regard. We chose the one that seems more complex and works best.


    SD Maid provides all the functions you need to keep your system optimized and clean up all unnecessary files. The app interface is very well structured, using ICS design elements. It works on rooted and non-rooted phones, though root access will grant the app access to system files and the cleaning process can be more thorough. Different functions are structured into tabs that you browse through with a swipe and activate by hitting the refresh button in the upper bar. There is also some extra functionality included, like the ability to clean market history or delete battery status.

    With so many firmware configurations for so many phones, the developer recommend you use SD Maid with caution. A lot of effort has been invested to make sure the app works best in it’s class and you will not miss any functionality. Here is a list of features SD Maid offers:

    • Remove corpses(left over files) from /dbdata/databases/ due to a bug in samsung firmware (Samsung devices only)
