One thing that I hate about Android apps is that not all of them uninstall cleanly. They leave debris behind, such as odd settings files, data directories, or log files, and that's where SD Maid comes to the rescue. It combs through both SD card and internal storage and removes unwanted app remains. The main feature of the app is the "corpse finder," illustrated by a clever zombie Android icon. Tap the Check button on the left, then Clean All on the right, and the app gets rid of the clutter on your phone. Part of the app is a full-powered file manager, so you can go search through directories and rename files, move them around, or remove them at will.
The scan isn't the fastest in the world, but it did clear out about 47MB of junk. More important to me is that when I browse my SD card's folders, there aren't any empties sitting there to waste my time.
