CCleaner for Android
CCleaner for Android aims to give your mobile a quick spring clean.

Just like your computer, your mobile and tablet can – over time – appear to slow down as you accumulate more apps and junk. Unlike iOS, Android is at least more transparent about file storage, making it easier for third-party apps to give you the tools you need to try and reclaim lost storage space, ditch the bloat and help restore a bit of zip to your mobile experience.

CCleaner is one of the best known cleanup tools for Windows, so it’s little surprise that Piriform has created an Android version. The app promises to remove the junk that slows your mobile down, plus reclaim storage space, browse more safely and monitor your system too.

Fire up the app and the first thing you’ll see is a useful bar chart telling you how much space is being used, both within your storage and RAM. Tap the Analyze button and after a short pause four areas will be scanned: cache, browser history, downloaded files and processes.

You’ll see a summary of what can be deleted and simply ticking the box and tapping Clean will do just that. Like the PC version, the app appears user-friendly and simple to browse, but there’s a downside – you can easily just click to clean things up without really knowing what you’re doing, and lose important data as a result.

Instead, tap a section header to reveal a breakdown of exactly what’s been found – this allows you, for example, to clear individual caches. Tap the menu button and choose Sort by cache size to get to the apps using up the most space. Deleting the cache can’t be done directly in CCleaner – it’ll automatically redirect you to the relevant settings screen, but  it’s a shame you can’t select multiple apps from here.

Things are more promising with Downloaded Files and Processes where you can make multiple selections, but you can’t review your Browser History at all. There’s also a section for the "manual cleaning" of selected apps – tap one to visit its settings screen. How this differs from the Cache – where all these apps are also featured – isn’t made clear.

CCleaner also offers an App Manager tool – for quickly removing multiple applications in one go – and a System Info tool that displays CPU, RAM, storage and battery usage. Tap the menu button in the top left-hand corner of the screen to access these.

What's New
- New Archives category in Storage Analyzer
- Added Picture and Video thumbnail previews in Storage Analyzer
- Improved Analysis and Cleaning results
- Updated various translations
- Minor GUI improvements
- Minor bug fixes
 

Verdict:

It's still early days, but CCleaner for Android does possess a reasonable variety of cleaning tools. Will appeal most to fans of the PC version.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
