Clean up your phone with a 1Tap eraser in a flash

One of the great things about Android devices over iPhone is that you don't have to decide how much storage you will need when you first purchase. Almost all Android phones and tablets have internal memory, which is supplemented by a memory card that can be upgraded as required.

However, that doesn't mean you won't run out of space. All storage has a finite capacity and the law of average states that you are most likely to run out of space when you need it most - just like you need to take an important photo or download a file to work on it. 1Tap Eraser is a free tool that allows you to manually and automatically keep your storage in check by removing unnecessary storage issues.

When you get an error saying you ran out of space, you know how frustrating it can be having to manually find apps that you don't need to uninstall or clear the caches on a computer on an individual basis. This is something 1Tap Eraser can help you with, and it allows you to quickly and easily free up valuable megabytes anytime.

Manual data removal

Launch the app and you'll be presented with a list of different types of files, caches, logs, and histories that you can delete. You can use a simple check box system to select exactly what you want to delete - you just want to clear the app cache, for example - but there is also a check box at the bottom of the screen that lets you wipe everything at one point Prank.

List of data items that you can delete.

In some cases, e.g. For things like message and call logs and browsing history, you can delete the records entirely, or take the time to go through each list manually and make sure that whatever you want to keep is preserved. By going through the different options here, you can free up hundreds of megabytes quickly with little effort.

Black & White lists

Perhaps the best way to get started with the app is by creating black and white lists of data. For both contacts and browsing history, you can choose between a black or white list.

Whitelisting URLs or domains when using the cleanup option will delete all browsing history except for the items specified in that list. Conversely, you can set up a blacklist of domains so that all browsing entries relating to these websites are always deleted. The same options can be used with your contact list to keep your address book in order.

Scheduled cleanups

The app's auto-eraser feature lets you schedule the process of freeing up memory so you don't have to go through everything manually. However, there is nothing against using a combination of manual and automatic cleaning. You can do the automatic cleanup every few hours, every few days, once a week - depending on how you use your device - and you can control exactly what is included in the scheduled process.

Schedule selected data cleansing tasks.

Regardless of whether you choose the manual or the automatic option, it is important that you are certain that you have chosen the correct settings. While you have the option to end a manual delete session, not every operation needs to be acknowledged and there are no acknowledgments whatsoever when you are in the scheduled mode.

Remember to use white lists to make sure your important data is not erased.

Handling calls and SMS logs

You can free up some space by clearing app caches and app data. However, 1Tap Eraser is also a valuable tool for data protection. When other people get access to your phone, you may want to think about clearing your call logs.

The app makes it easy to filter different types of calls and messages so you can edit them and delete the ones you want to keep private but the ones you need. How you use the app is entirely up to you. What sets you apart from the competition for data sanitizers? That's how flexible she is.

Manually delete call logs.

If all of these options aren't enough, there is also a home screen widget that gives you quick access to delete options. This is another component of the app that you need to set up beforehand and you can specify which part of your device you want to clean up. You can get a confirmation message if you want a safety net or sign out to speed things up.
