Just like a full-size laptop or desktop computer, your smartphone's programs generate a lot of temporary files. After days, weeks and months, those temp files really start to pile up, causing inefficiencies that might slow down your phone's performance to an exasperating crawl.

With CacheMate for Root Users, you'll wipe your phone's slate clean of those temporary files. You'll undoubtedly have more storage space as a result, and you may see a significant boost in overall responsiveness and speed, too. Better yet, you don't have to remember to run CacheMate; you can simply schedule it to perform its cleanup tasks automatically.
