  1. Talboth-avatar

    Great for removing stubborn leftovers! You should note that some apps and system level events will recreate folders as needed. As for empty folders no longer used, this app is well suited for the task.

  2. Mae Mascardo-avatar

    windows 10 A very reliable app 100% working !i had a problem of corrupted app that contain residual folders of about 1000 folders within folders,but this app helps me to delete it all. Thank you for this app!

  3. Dunia eCerdas-avatar

    apk All the data in the gallery is made messy and a lot is lost, and there is malware in this application ...!?

  4. Mewzyk 420-avatar

  5. dean spencer-avatar

    windows Great app, functions flawlessly. Simple and intuitive to use.

  6. Nikhil Kumar-avatar

    for pc One of the essential apps for mobiles ...keep it up ..i hope i don't see ads ever :D ....

  7. Blayk 133-avatar

    download Works well for internal storage but can only do SD card if rooted which isn't a requirement for apps for interact with it any more, just need to open the files dialogue and select the root folder of the SD card

  8. ariyan ahmed-avatar

    android First it was working but now the problem seeing that file deletion error

  9. DeQui LaFeara-avatar

    portable Even after cleaning all the files and deleting over 6,000 i still have the same amount of space my game data is just gone. Nice scam

  10. oneLuv 7 children-avatar

    oneLuv 7 children


    2019 excellent app. fast way to get rid if unnecessary folders Hogging up valuable space. only thing is in the Google Play store there are a bunch if photos showing the application process. im wondering how to access the screens shown in photos to see progress and weather permissions were granted for external storage (SD card)

  11. David John-avatar

    Usually, "cleaner" apps are a giant scam and range from useless to harmful. They mess with your OS' ram management while hogging resources, serving ads or worse. This app has a different purpose: it deletes empty folders & does it well. The similarity in names to the scummy kind of app is unfortunate, but what are you gonna do, the name is also accurate/descriptive. The app does its job well. Deleted 'portrait' pictures leave a ton of annoying empty folders. This app cleans 'em up well. A+.

  12. Diego VD-avatar

    Very helpful and it seems it finds more empry folders than normal cleaner apps which arent focused on folders

  13. Bhaskar Paliwal-avatar

    A wonderful app, built for functionality, not money. Developer(s) of this paricular app rock! Oh and looking by the size and the components of the app, it also does NOT seem to be selling your provate data like numerous other FREE apps out there on the play store. ๐Ÿ˜˜

  14. A Google user-avatar

    This was a really simple app to use. Since all the updates it is becoming more difficult to use. The developer has now added a root access facility. If like me your phone is not rooted ,what is the point of this root access. I am now not sure if the empty files are being deleted.

  15. Arntor Ein Windir-avatar

    Arntor Ein Windir


    thanks finally a useful app with minimal interface does exactly what it is supposed to and thankfully this app exists because as far as I know there are no other apps that has this specific function feature and to my surprise there where over 150 items from previously uninstalled apps in my phone storage and my phone is not very old so it shows how quickly past applications folder can accumulate everywhere in your device's system folders I have an emotion pardon me...

  16. Swapnil Sharma-avatar

    I wanted to Clean Empty Folders of my external SD Card but without Root. If Possible, Please Push An Update.

  17. Hein Htet San-avatar

    Good to use . I like it. It has more functions than any other app

  18. Tony Smoke-avatar

    PERFECT It literally does exactly what it says it does. Amazing right? it doesn't appear much time or effort was put into giving it a smooth, slick, flashy app that somewhere in the manutia of noise, MAYBE itll do something like what it says it will. AND THATS NOT ONLY OKAY, BUT REFRESHING HONEST. THANK YOU

  19. A Google user-avatar

    Small sized app but gives great job.This consumes almost of least battery and RAM.It is 100% add free app. This is almost low risked app therefor it is the most safe app for smart phones. This is very easy to use and empties a lot of folders without any late.I found this very helpful Thanks a lot dear talented developer and offerer for this excellent app.

    WoW! WoW! & WoW! Finally found that app that will eliminate all those stupid folders that are empty and needless to say DON'T take up any space at all, really... I'm glad I can now sleep restfully knowing I got this app installed doing Lord knows what to my device in those wee hours of the late night....

  21. Mark D60-avatar

    I don't think it works. I ran the app, then looked at my file manager and say Cheetah Browser, 0 items. So I ran the app again, The empty Cheetah folder was still there. "Hmmmm, maybe the device re-creates the folder immediately", so I deleted it myself and it has stayed deleted so far....

  22. ้Ÿฉๆ˜Ž็ฟ-avatar



    Though it's designed not to touch folders with hidden files, could you please add an option to display folders with ONLY a '.nomedia' when scanning? I need to learn them and then I will handle them by myself. ***below is the previous review*** This app removes most empty folders and saves me a lot of time navigating through directories. It's especially useful when I connect my phone to computer to transfer files since I don't need to dig the things I want out from those annoying folders now.

  23. TheBadGuy-avatar

    My phone became fast as light after cleaning empty folders. this app is very genuine and no advertisements. i clean my phone everyday it runs smooth for pubg game. thank u๐Ÿค— i hope it will get new features like home screen widget single tap to clean. and another some features like junk(cache) cleaning

  24. Anja Evelyn-avatar

    Galaxy s4, 5.0.1 - just installed, and I'm fascinated, small and efficient App, It cleaned 215 empty Folders.. (!), It's very easy to use, I guess I can recommend it, after 5Min. before installing, and 1rst Use, Thanx to Developer(s)..

  25. Marianne-avatar

    This is a great little app. Have you ever looked in your folders and wondered why it's even there as the folder contained stuff for an app you deleted 6 months ago? This runs through and deletes all of those folders in 5 seconds. Love it.

    Not clearing SD card.i hv already rooted the system still getting error

  27. Nash HH-avatar

    There is no one tap widget function. Otherwise the app works well.

  28. Tahir Taous-avatar

    It found a lot of folders on my device but failed to delete all those folders. It deleted half of those folders successfully.

  29. Daviid Mead-avatar

    worked fine for several months but after the latest update all that happens is a message that there are 17 files to remove but an error will not allow them to be deleted. I reinstalled the program but no joy. I am using Android 6.01.

  30. Zanti Blue-avatar

    Simple and well done. To those that gave a lower rating because it didn't clean their SD card: your phone needs to be rooted in order for this app to get the permissions needed to work on SD card. Idiot. Go tape your face.

  31. Duncan Drury-avatar

    A program like this needs a preview that lists empty folders, and an interface to open the log file wherever that happens to be. I'm very surprised those werent included - this just has a button to delete things and thats about it...

  32. D Lane-avatar

    Wow! It really works! Whenever I browse on Wish or Geek they load my phone up with hundreds of thumbnail pics. This app completely removes those as well as any other unwanted pics I thought were deleted.

  33. Eric Perry-avatar

    This app is phenomenal at creating massive amounts of space in your storage! Beyond a doubt this has got to be one of the best apps at finding secret hidden empty folders in vast amounts, that will stupefy you at the enormity of the quantity of hidden folders and other folders that are empty, and basically useless!? Thanks for a great app devs!!! ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“‚๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ<>๐Ÿ—‚๏ธโดยฒยฐร—ฯ€ยฒร—โˆžโฟ=NFW!!!

    Quick, fast and clean UI. No BS. Good.

  35. Ron-avatar

    I had originally thought this app was the source of a browser hijacker that infected my phone. But now I have ruled that out. It was not the source of the problem. it's a good app.

  36. Kumar Bharat-avatar

    Quick and simple ..downloaded, used and removed . It did the required job instantly ...will download again when needed ..

    Works like magic. Especially helpful if you have SD card applications that have left dead files on your card. Ad free and works! Life should be so simple.. Great app..

    Muhammad Idzham Mohammad Amin


    Greatest empty folder cleaner since it is ad-free and does what it says. But it will only clean empty folders in internal memory, will need to use rooted phone to clean the phone's SD card. Kudos developer

    Very good app but the problem is that it can not scan or delete empty folder from external memory card if device is not rooted. Please do something in this regard.

  44. Jack Beavington-avatar

    Jack Beavington


    Really useful and works! Takes about 10 seconds to complete. Only downside is that it doesn't really work on external storage devices.

  45. A Google user-avatar

    Great app. Found 280 empty directories on my device. No ads. Would gladly pay $1 for the app. Id like to see a scheduling feature such as run every night at 3am.

  46. Jon Tan-avatar

    not sure why there is a redundant need to have a scan empty folder without deleting them when the overall action is to delete them, but overall, its good.

  47. Cholis Rozas-avatar

    simple & best app. why for external storage need root?

  48. Yahya Zekry-avatar

    Works well, it deleted the whole internal and external empty folders, it's ads feee, it's simple. I love it

  49. Austin Pierson-avatar

    Thank you for such an easy and straight forward app. Does exactly what it says, and does it well! Deleted 262 folders on my phone!

  50. Jan Nedbal-avatar

    It finds new folders every time, even when I run the scan right after supposedly deleting all of them.

    Thanks! This cleaned them out fast, it was also quick to download so it's a small app too! Five stars for you! Thanks for not having any adds, that's really kind of you.

  52. Lucky Lux-avatar

    Excellent app with very low space occupation. User friendly, and easy. Clearing process done in just one click.

  53. A Google user-avatar

    Everything is great except the app is not able to clean memory card empty folders, it is better to take the system modification permission or admin permission.

  54. Aaron P-avatar

    Works GREAT with root access, makes my phone noticably quicker and best of all is..Not a single advertisement in site!

  55. Devashish Shrestha-avatar

    App will take more space than all the empty folders combined and some empty folders might be there to store information temporarily, I just installed this app to point this out and well it does not delete anything on my phone anyway.

  56. S.Atif.S-avatar

    It is very good app, but cannot delete empty folders with out root and new android phones cannot be rooted.

  57. Brett Wyrick-avatar

    Super quick and easy. Straight to the point. Well done. Ad-free and awesome. ๐Ÿ‘

  58. Gaurav Nawani-avatar

    Nice works as expected, maybe add feature to clean from SD card as well.

  59. bansku-avatar

    Yeah sure it speeds up navigation within files, but the funny thing is how people think it speeds up your phone or clears out more storage.

  60. Ken F-avatar

    Works great. Deleted 187 empty folders first time and 97 from my ad card. Simple and effective

  61. Yusuf Jamal-avatar

    doesn't seem to support Android 9 Pie. don't install it if your phone has Android Pie (or just do. it's free anyway)

  62. Rohan Sawant-avatar

    Really great app! Clears all the junk folder within a click. Also app is lightweight and ad free. Thanks developer team.

  63. Christian Bethel-avatar

    The fact that your device needs to be rooted in order to delete empty folders from an external SD card is absolutely ridiculous.
