I'm an avid temporary file cleaner and I was delighted to find a link to the software Clear Temp at the Tip and Trick blog which was formerly known as My Digital Life. (Anyone knows what caused the domain change ?) Anyway, Clear Temp works on Pocket PCs running at least Windows Mobile 2003. It can be compared to Crap Cleaner and Disk Cleaner for desktop PCs which get rid of temporary files and privacy related data like history files.

Clear Temp does the same for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs. Temporary files and data that you want cleaned can be checked in the main program interface, these include cookies, temp files and cache in various locations, recent programs and a dozen others.

It is furthermore possible to define custom folders that you want cleaned and schedule cleaning during system boot. You should do a soft reset after each cleaning so that the changes can take effect.

Transfer the cab file to your mobile device and tap on it in the file explorer to start the installation.

Update: The program is unfortunately no longer available We have removed the links from this website as there is no reason to keep them up any longer. The majority of phones these days come with options to clean temporary files, and those that do not, can still be cleaned with the help of applications that you can download from connected application stores.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!

    I am additionally add one more think if you want to watch instagram stories anonymously to visit site
