10 Alternatives to Clean Master for Android

What is Clean Master?

Clean Master deletes unnecessary items, leftovers, junk files, cleans caches, cleans records and clogs, and closes unnecessary apps. It also scans Android device for malware and speeds-up the device. Clean Master's anti-virus engine ensures round the clock protection for your device. This app from Kingsoft has more than 40 million users around the world.

Every Android application creates certain amount of residual files, junk files, caches. These files not only occupy space in your smartphone, but they also drain phone's battery quickly. Clean Master deletes these files and makes space in your phone. Thanks to its background cleaning feature, you might not even realize that the cleaner is working in the background.

No doubt that Clean Master is one of the best solutions to speed-up your Android. However, there are some other impressive software programs available in the market. Here are ten of them.

Wondershare MobileGo might prove to be Clean Master's best alternative. The two-part system consists of Android app and application for windows PC.

No 2. TrustGo

TrustGo is another impressive application that detects and deletes apps, spyware, and malware that cause security issues. It also offers impressive interface that can help you monitor you phone's data usage, memory usage, battery consumption, etc. TrustGo's anti-virus engine offers round the clock protection to the device.

The app can be downloaded free of cost, and there are no problems worth talking about in this app.

No 3. Advanced Task Killer for Android

Developed by app maker ReChild, Advanced Task Killer for Android cleans phone's memory by deleting unnecessary files, and deleting unnecessary applications.

The app's way of functioning is very simple; it deletes unnecessary apps and files. But the app might not prove to be useful for devices that work on Android Gingerbread and above, as these versions of Android offer option to monitor apps using apps manager. So, perhaps these devices do not need additional task manager and killer.

No 4. App Cache Cleaner

If ignored, cache can occupy considerable part of your phone's memory. Cleaning cache can prove to be the best way to create additional space in your smartphone, and that is what App Cache Cleaner for Android does for you.

Developed by app maker called Infolife, this application scans your device and can show the exact amount of space occupied by cache. All that you need to do is click on "clean" to get rid of all the cache.

The only negative aspect in this app seems to be the absence of auto cache deletion feature. App Cache Cleaner shows alerts when cache reaches up to certain limit, but there is no option to set auto delete.

No 5. Adguard for Android

As the name suggests, the application focuses more on getting rid of unwanted ads, surveillance, and malicious websites. The application manages to reduce loading time for sites, and speeds-up the phone as well.

Unfortunately, the app is not available on Google Play and has to be installed as third party app.

Plus, the application is compatible with handsets that work with 4.3 or later versions of Google’s software.

No 6. Mobogenie

Some text messages are important, but they also end-up occupying a lot of space in your smartphone. Mobogenie is an application that can help you manage your text messages, and create back-up for them on your PC. The app also helps in managing contacts on your device.

The application is created by Beijing Gamease Age Digital Tech. Managing text messages can help you make some extra space in your phone, but this application is definitely not as useful as those that make space by deleting cache or managing other apps.

No 7. DU Speed Booster Cache Cleaner

This software is perhaps second best competitor to Clean Master after Wondershare MobileGo.  

DU Speed Booster Cache Cleaner cleans junk and cache files from your smart phone. The developers of this software claim that this app can increase your phone's speed by up to 60 percent. It manages applications and controls auto start apps. DU Speed Booster Cache Cleaner is also equipped with anti-virus and Trojan scanners. This app has nothing to criticize, and most of the users are happy.

No 8. Teebik Apps Mobile Security & Anti Virus for Android

Teebik Apps Mobile Security and Anti Virus software offers protection from Trojan, spyware, malware and viruses. This software automatically scans all the apps after certain period, and keeps you updated about the device's security. It also alerts you in-case if you install malware or spyware. You can keep track about apps that occupy a lot of space and delete those unnecessary ones.

Your phone can speed-up due to this software, but unfortunately, it cannot manage to take care of cache and other junk files created by apps.

No 9. Booster for Android

Perhaps, you might have never heard about NQ Mobile Security's Booster for Android. But, the app has been installed by more than 50 million users. It is compatible with almost all the Android devices.

The software quickly scans your phone/tablet PC and shows the percentage of device memory that is occupied, along with suggestions regarding unnecessary files, tasks. All that you need to do is click on delete. Booster for Android is the best option if you are looking for free app to take care of your phone memory. The only negative aspect about this app is its love and hate relation with certain apps that keep on working in the background.

No 10. AirDroid

AirDroid for Android offers better control over smart phone apps, and also allows you to manage your phone's content from web browser. Transferring files, photos, and videos becomes very easy due to this app. The software also provides real-time information about running apps, processes, and media files that are stored on your phone memory as well as SD card.

The app seems to be more focused to offer data transfer and file management. If you are looking for an app that can help you get rid of unwanted files, AirDroid may not be the best option.
