Manage Data on Your Android Device With NES
So, you think you can install 37 apps on a single day? You are down to 36 and the next thing you know, your Android device gives you a little pop up telling you that you do not have enough space available to install it. What the…? In essence, the data partition used by Android in your device gets pretty full from time to time, but there really isn’t anything built in to let you know what app is the culprit. XDA member cyansmoker has developed an app, for which he is looking for people to help beta test. The app will allow the user to see which apps or folders are taking the largest amount of space, and will allow you to move them around (to a storage card for instance). The dev also claims that the app can also wipe Dalvik cache.
If you feel like lending a hand for this useful new app, please let the dev know with some feedback. Keep in mind that you must be rooted.
