AVG has introduced a free application for Android smartphones and tablets, so users can monitor and remove unwanted apps to free up space and improve performance.

AVG Technologies AU has today announced that the AVG Uninstaller™ application is now available free for Android™ smartphones and tablets.

AVG Uninstaller enables users to monitor apps on their Android smartphones and tablets according to their size, frequency of use, battery consumption and mobile data usage and then use the information gathered to decide which applications they might want to uninstall. Offering regular, proactive notification on recommended apps to remove, AVG Uninstaller enables users to decide quickly and easily how to free up space for new apps and help improve their device’s performance - all without having to go through multiple Android OS tasks to delete each app individually.

“With recent studies showing that as much as 82% of consumers’ mobile time is being spent on apps , it’s clear that we all love to download these programs, but there are inevitably some apps that we use once then totally forget about. While this doesn’t seem like an immediate problem, having these unused apps running in the background can have a draining effect on our devices, particularly on their limited storage memory, but also on battery power and mobile data - all of which can ultimately hinder overall performance,” said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Chief Technology Officer at AVG Technologies.

“In particular, frequent app users or those with only a small amount of memory on their devices can quickly find themselves running out of space, or becoming frustrated by potentially sluggish performance. AVG Uninstaller for Android helps to solve this problem by enabling users to analyse their application use and then de-clutter their devices without fuss, so that they can free up space for the latest app releases that they really want.”

AVG Uninstaller builds upon an existing mobile presence from AVG Technologies, which provides award-winning AVG mobile solutions to millions of users worldwide. Following the recent releases of AVG Cleaner, AVG Image Shrinker and AVG TuneUp™, AVG Uninstaller adds to a suite of mobile products all designed to help improve device performance.
