    I have the mini info widget and my internal storage dropped below 100mb. I know it doesn't matter but I'm alittle anal and it bothered me since I had not downloaded anything in a while.

    Turns out alot of my apps had some big cache numbers so I went through my app's even my system ones and cleared all the cache in every app.

    I freed up 43mb of internal storage.

    So is there any way to clear all cahce in all app's at once? It took me like 10 mintues to do this.


    Again, I know the space doesn't matter, I'm just curious.

    Thanks.



    In case anyone was wondering who the big cache players are.

    Browser
    Engadget widget
    Stock News/weather widget

    I'll be honest, I have no idea how to do that.

    I'd prefer an app or process so i don't ahve to turn my phone off, but I'll entertain any option.

    +1 on Cachemate, it even has one touch widgets.

    I use it around once a week and it will usually drop anywhere from 5 to 15mb, depending.

    Here is one more vote for Cachemate. It will clear cache and also select data files. After you get it read the help file so you fully understand the instructions.

    This program will fix you up!

    HEY! I'm with Big Cam........is there an app??

    Is there an app/widget that will accomplish this for stock Droid'ers!

    I'm not rooted either, but would sure like to be able to empty all caches with one button push!

    TIA

    Cachemate is the best. Can reboot recovery and wipe cache also. But no, without root there is no easy way to clear ur cache. Need su permissions to go through and empty all the cache.

    I use an app called "Quick Systems Info PRO". It has a one touch cache cleaner. I dont know much about this app except that it has the cleaner in it. If someone knows more about this app please let me know. NO ROOT REQUIRED and FREE
