App cache cleaner

Been using it since I stopped using task killers. Works fine for me.

Unless you are using éclair or earlier versions of Android, task killers are at best a complete waste of time, at worst they are actually bad for your phone.

I know. Thats why I stopped using them :)

Explain...never used this before, nor have I used task killers either.

Somebody else can probably explain better but each application creates a cached file when you use it. Its the equivalent of temp internet files or cookies on a windows machine. The app cache cleaner deletes these files freeing up memory. When I had my OG EVO it was especially useful because I was always running out of memory.

The cache will just get recreated on boot.

I don't see how it would free up memory nor should you need to do that on phones today.

 

Dunno.. Maybe I don't understand the question.

Yes and no. The cache never goes away it just gets emptied out. When you reboot each app that reloads will start to insert data into its individual cache. As the user opens up and uses applications, those applications will insert data into there individual caches. Its easiest to equate them with cookies. Cookies don't go away until you clear them out. They automatically "reappear" as you surf the web.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
