AVG Announces Smart Photo Cleaner to Clear Up Space

January 5, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

 

We’ve all been there, taking loads of pictures on our smartphones, but always running out of space. Must be all those selfies. There are services like Google Photos which can backup your photos, but your photos are still located on your device and thus using storage on your device. But not anymore. AVG has their new Smart Photo Cleaner which is part of their popular AVG Cleaner app. The main purpose of this is to clean up the cache, space and keep your smartphone running nice and smooth. AVG has over 200 million monthly active users, using a few of their other popular apps including the AVG Cleaner. Speaking of which, AVG Cleaner is also getting an update that includes a new one-click dashboard that can analyze the device status and start a one-tap clean-up of files, storage and battery-draining apps.

“On average, we carry 2GB of unwanted pictures on our smart devices,” said Ron Levy, Senior Product Manager.

For those of us with 16GB devices, that 2GB of storage can really come in handy, that’s the size of a few apps, and even a game or two. Additionally, something that many users aren’t aware of, is the fact that when your storage is almost completely full, it slows down the performance of the device. So being able to clear up space on your device  is definitely helpful. Of course, manually deleting photos can be a bit annoying for those with a ton of photos. So allowing the Smart Photo Cleaner do the work is a great idea, as you can sit back and let it do all of the work.

In addition to the Smart Photo Cleaner, the AVG Cleaner app also includes a cache cleaner, History Cleaner and App manager. So you can keep your device fresh and clean, like you just did a factory restore on the smartphone. You can download the AVG Cleaner from the Google Play Store now, it’s completely free, and a great tool to keep your device fresh and running smoothly. Especially if you need to keep your smartphone running for a few years.
