All-In-One Toolbox is a powerful Android cleaner and tools collection

My Android device, a Moto G, has been running slower than usual lately and one of the reasons why that has been the case is that it was about to run out of space.

Back then I purchased the 8 Gigabyte model and while sufficient in many ways, it became apparent quickly that free storage was running out quickly.

All-In-One-Toolbox is a free app for Android devices that brings along with it more than two dozen tools that you can run on it. One of its core tools can recover free space and RAM on the device.

When you start the app for the first time, it displays free ROM, RAM and Sdcard storage in the interface. A click on clean here opens the cleanup tool which can recover space on the device.

All-In-One-Toolbox scans various locations on the device, caches for instance, and displays how much space you can free up when you click on the clean button.

I was able to clear more than 800 Megabyte on my first run, and more than 300 on the day after.

Here you can also switch to the advanced page which provides you with options to remove privacy and history related information from the device. While that won't free up space on the device, it will remove information about previous activities from the device.

The boost feature is the second tool highlighted on the apps' startpage. It can be used to terminate processes running on it. Each process is listed with the memory, cpu and battery it is using.

You can kill all processes or only select ones on the page. Note that it lists only processes that can be killed.

Toolbox finally opens a page that lists additional tools:

  • Batch Install  to install multiple apps in a row.
  • Batch Uninstall to do the opposite.
  • Backup & Restore applications.
  • System App Uninstall to disable apps that shipped with the system.
  • App2SD to move selected apps from phone memory to a Sdcard.
  • Boot Speedup to disable select user and system apps from starting with the system.
  • Startup Customize to add applications to the boot process.
  • File Manager.

A click on more opens the plugin listing. These are not installed by default but can be installed at any time from that page. You find more than a dozen here including an ad detector, a flashlight plugin, a game booster, and one to check permissions.

Conclusion

All-In-One-Toolbox is an easy to use app for Android that is quite powerful. While you can use it exclusively for cleaning purposes,  the other tools it makes available can come in useful in one or the other situation as well.

All in all, it is a useful application even though it is a bit heavy on the permissions side of things but that is probably used mostly for the cleaning part.

    Thanks, Martin, definitely an app I’m going to try. Finally came aboard with Android and was looking for a cleaning program!

    Thanks for this app suggestion, Martin. I’ve been relying on a combination of Clean Master Phone Boost and History Eraser to take care of my RAM, ROM and history management on my Moto G 16GB phone. I have no big reason to be dissatisfied with either app, but All-In-One Toolbox seems to offer even more features and control, so I will definitely be testing it over the next couple of weeks. Looks like a winner.

    Does it require root for any features?

    Couple of things:

    1. Although it may work with limitations without root, it does ask for superuser permission if your phone is rooted. So I assume that something won’t work or not fully work (like cleaning files not available unless rooted?).

    2. Another app that tries to go to the internet without asking for permission and lord knows for what purpose. I use NoRoot firewall and the app immediately attempted internet access.

    I’m using SDMaid Pro, it was one of the first cleaner app I know, and it definitely beat ccleaner and other wannabe Android cleaner apps, because this app is fast, the german developer update the app regular and if you have any wish I’m sure the dev can include it in the next versions.
    Well SDMaid does not offer such toolbox function, but for cleaning it’s perfect.

    And for people which don’ like the play store, here is a official mirror:

    Ps: It can work in root and without root mode.

    I personally endorse this app. I use it to control which apps start on boot. Works a charm.
    I could take or leave the “boost” and “clean” features, but the startup control is very important to me.

    Most of what this app, and most apps like it, offer is snake oil. Android cleans it’s own RAM, when needed. Clearing an 800MB browser cache and making it look like a heroic deed is snake oil.
