UCWeb, the makers of one of the most popular mobile browser, has launched UC Cleaner – an app to optimize an Android device’s performance by freeing up RAM and closing apps that hinder performance.
The app features a simple ad-free interface that has allowed the developers to keep its size to less than 1.5MB. Apart from cleaning up a device’s memory, the Super Booster feature can disable auto-start apps on non-rooted devices.
Super Booster is primarily targeted at apps that come preinstalled on devices as part of promotional tie-ups and other bloat.
Further, UC Cleaner analyses battery, data and storage use in order to help users identify and delete resource-intensive, rarely used apps and junk files that use up all the phone’s storage space.
Android OS does a pretty good job of allocating memory resources on devices, but it’s often bloatware installed by manufacturers that slows a device down. While blocking unwanted apps from starting up is a plus, the benefits of freeing up RAM on an Android devices is questionable.
