The brilliant CCleaner has now been released on Android, it just came out of the beta stage last week.

No in-app ads either, and has great reviews on the Google Play Store.

And here are the links for the software on Windows and Mac, just in-case anyone wants them on there too.

Hmmm, how does it compare to clean master?

Awesome, thanks

I'll stick with clean master on my phone

Clean Master is actually better. It's got a top rated built in AV as well as the system cleaner and optimizer.

Clean master is a hog. If you click settings apps you'll see it will ALWAYSS run in the background.

Ccleaner is thinner and lighter app.

Have used CCleaner on my PC for years ... will definitely use it on my tablet ... thanks TF

Great.. thanks for posting. Heat added.

So, which is better? CCleaner, or Clean Master?

Needs access to a lot? Why would I want them to look at my SMS?

any good for NookHD? (stock o/s)

Have loved Ccleaner on my pc for years, this will be a welcome addition to my HTC One.

I have used PC CCleaner Professional for years and it is very good, very reliable and frequently updated.

I have used other software from this supplier and it has always been of high quality.

Not sure if this will work on my KINDLE Fire HD and not sure if I need it, I'm sure that AMAZON are tracking my every step anyway.

That'll be because it's an antivirus as well. Don't think it would work very well as an AV if it didn't run in the background.

If you think you don't need AV for Android or are using something else, then CCleaner'll be ok, but the all in one package offered by clean master is by no means a system hog and offers complete protection and excellent system cleaning too. It will rid you of junk just as well as CCleaner.

fast on pc - use it most days

I'll give it a try.

I use CC regularly on my PC, but I'm not completely convinced that I need something like this on my android phone.

it's amazing how much "c" apps leave behind. Even more useful on mobile devices due to storage limitations. worth trying this or clean master, even just to try.

It's a personal preference, so just try both.

It's essential if you want to allow it to delete your SMS messages. See mushypeas123's comment above.

As long as you've got Ice Cream Sandwich or a higher version, it should work fine.

Too little, too late


To be fair, they did review the 'beta' version. I can only see this app getting better now that it's finally out of the 'beta' stage, and as it gets more popular I'm sure new functions/features will be implemented in time. Just take a look at Piriform's other software, they're all great IMHO. I can't see this being an exception.

Been using this on my PC forever thank you

Probably worth an install considering the amount I use dodgy apps like show box

You always feel the need to post a funny image or GIF in one of my deals, don't you? lol.

Thank you, I had no idea this was available for Android, I'm in a constant battle with storage these days so should come in handy!

Heat added - Thks to Transformers post , it made me look to see if there was an adware cleaner for Android , there are many out there and would be good to get some feedback from users who have tried some.
I came across this one which appears to be fairly new play.google.com/sto…are , it looks good and has a live protection mode.
Sorry for being slighlty off topic -

Should I put this on my iPad?

This is definitely worth it for anyone using social networking apps (probably everyone), especially google+ with its auto backup. For me it seems to build up to around 100mb cache every couple of days just for g+ which is ridiculous!

Great, thanks op

This is really useful

good find...

There is something immensely satisfying about using "cleaning" software like CCleaner especially on a decrepit, full-to-bursting old phone like the one I've got. Maybe its the inner janitor in me...

nice find OP but like others, im going to stick with Clean Master.

Great thanks

I'm using Malwarebytes app for android, on my Nexus S phone, always running as well as daily scans.

I got rid of Google+ on my phone for that reason.

Thks - I have read some mixed reviews on this , the general view is the PC version is better and not so good on Android , but if it works for you then stick with it.
