This app can do more stuff than just clearing cache.

Clean droid is great and fast and doesn't stay in memory, I stopped using memory killers and cache cleaning tools long time ago till I started using clean droid, so simple and fast and functional but you have to pay through IAP to get all the functions and remove adds but I got that for free through appgratis

As far as "memory boost", I know constantly killing apps drains battery and some functionality but you really just leave all those residual files and such on your phone?
Again, I'm not shooting you down, I was just inquiring for a better understanding.

Good question…let’s just say there is more than one way to skin a cat and it also a bit to do with the device (specs) and the set-up
I moved from a low-end (Sony Xperia Tipo) to a mid range (Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro) to a high-end (Nexus 5) and on the first 2 devices cleanmaster seemed a necessity due to low device specs. On the N5 never I felt the need and I also rooted to fully unlock the true potential of the N5.
if you’re on a rooted device, you may need to clean flash (full factory reset) from time to time. (depending on the rom and update frequency ). This practically takes care of day-to-day cleaning.
I go a step further and wipe internal storage (about once in 2 months), so absolutely nothing is left. This is like the annual spring cleaning.

Why I would not wipe cache or be selective about it? I use google stock gallery with over 5000 photos on the cloud thru picassa, if I clear cache, thumbnails etc would re-download and waste precious bandwidth…therefore it becomes a bit pointless to do that on daily/weekly basis when I have already planned for a quarterly spring cleaning.
That said, I use SD maid pro to selective clean stuff which I suspect need cleaning
More than anything it is all about personal preferences…

+1 for SD Maid Pro
First thing I do on a clean flash is app control and toggle auto start components.

Found this app called NoDir, does pretty much what every other cleaner does but is more light-weight .
