Delete the Not-So-Temporary Temporary Cache with CacheClearer

As was mentioned in a recent episode of XDA TV, the Windows Phone market is growing—not by a lot, but it’s growing. Does this mean there will be more development for Windows Phone 7? We can only hope so. As WP7 matures, developers are finding issues and are fixing them. So at least current WP7 devices can be made to run better. One such application helps clear out the phone’s temporary cache.

Called CacheClearer, it was developed because the so called temporary cache is not so temporary. XDA Senior Member Magpir posted the application to XDA along with an explanation on why users actually need it. As Magpir explains:

every Windows Phone application that accesses the internet has a temporary cache folder. Essentially, these are temporary internet files folders for the individual application, which make it faster to pull stale data that the application has already downloaded. Unfortunately, these are apparently not-so-temporary in nature, and from what we’ve found, can’t actually be purged without some homebrew magic.

Thus, a homebrew magic solution was born. The application is pretty easy to use. Simply side load the XAP, open the application, and follow the onscreen prompts. This will help clear out the cache that was supposed to be cleared on its own.

For more info and an informative video, check out the application thread.

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
