NEW YORK, NY, June 26, 2014 — Piriform, the leading provider of computer optimization software, announced the launch of CCleaner for Android, available now as a free download for both smart phones and tablets at the Google Play Store . The app speeds-up performance of Android-based devices by safely removing unwanted applications, logs, histories and content, maximizing storage capacity on the user’s device.
Similar to the original CCleaner’s ability to maximize computer hard drives, this easy-to-navigate app optimizes Android phones and tablets with only a few clicks. It lets users remove application cache; delete call logs and SMS messages either individually, in bulk, or according to age or contact; uninstall unwanted apps; and monitor statistics such as battery levels, temperature, internal storage, memory and CPU usage. All these capabilities are achieved through use of an intuitive, streamlined interface.
“Piriform is extremely proud to launch CCleaner for Android. This was a natural progression for us following CCleaner's success in the desktop market and is something smartphone and tablet users have been consistently asking for,” said Guy Saner, CEO of Piriform. “We're looking forward to offering Android users the same simple yet powerful optimization capabilities they've been using on their PCs and Macs for years.”
CCleaner is one of the world's most-downloaded PC optimization applications, having accumulated more than one-billion downloads globally. It has been installed in 200 countries and in more than 45 languages. The CCleaner Android mobile app has already been tested by tens of thousands of users.
