Having a decent set of utilities on your smartphone is essential these days. With so many apps using up memory and storage space, it is easy to lose track of things and end up with an iPhone that is clogged up with useless junk files and apps you haven’t used in months.
Memory & Disk Scanner Pro, available for iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes App Store, is a tool that claims is able to help you with these issues and become an ‘all in one’ memory management tool for your iOS device.
The app has been intelligently designed to appeal to all users. Those people who want an uncomplicated way to de-clutter their device with one button press will find this in the app, while those who want a bit more detail and to know exactly what processes their phone is running at any one time are also catered for.
When you first boot the app up, all you need to do is press the button labelled ‘one click’, and it will scan your storage for unwanted junk files and clean your memory of unneeded items, freeing up a bit more space and even potentially speeding your phone or iPad up. When you do this, you will get a prompt from the iPhone stating that the memory is full; be sure to press ‘done’ on this screen to ensure the process runs smoothly.
The main screen will also give you a handy live pie chart of both your memory and storage, making it easy to check up on things. Tapping the icon on the top right of this screen takes you to a more advanced screen that shows you detailed processes running, your CPU cores, and even a screen of detailed network items.
My favourite feature of the app is the ability to set it to perform different tasks automatically when you boot it up. For example, you can ask it to scan your memory, disk, or combination of the two. This makes it even easier to use than before, so you can boot the app up, let it run and then exit without having to do anything.
You can also adjust the depth of its memory cleaning tool, from ‘very quick’, to ‘very deep’, adjust the setting for the best potential performance of your device and even set the amount of cycles to check the disk on. The app is free to use, although you will have to upgrade to the full version when the initial trial period expires, but I feel the price is worth it.
Overall, this is a great little tool that offers something for everyone. Both advanced and novice users will be able to get something from this app, and the trial period means you get to try it for free to see if it has any use to you. A worthy download, grab it now.
