With smartphones being an everyday household appliance, it’s increasingly important to find reliable ways to manage your data. Smartphones offer considerably limited storage space, and coming up with ways to maximize this space is a priority for many device owners. The good news is that there are several unique android apps that you can use to manage your storage more effectively.

1.      Storage Analyzer

This is a powerful android app that helps you analyze your Android storage. You’ll be able to analyze device system partitions, both internal and external memory. The app shows a listing of all stored files and applications by date, size, and the number of files. You can also easily view the size of the apps and delete unnecessary data as well. Storage Analyzer is equipped with a filtering feature so that you can easily filter stored files and make the right data management decision. For instance, you can sort by size and delete unnecessary media files that are eating up most of your space. Storage Analyzer is completely free on the Google Play store.

2.      File Manager

Downloaded to more than 10 million devices, this is actually one of the most important applications to manage your storage space. The app provides an easier way to handle all your files whether they’re stored in your device’s memory card, in your cloud accounts or in the local area network. You can easily copy, move, delete, rename and share files on the go. And when you’re running out of space but don’t want to uninstall anything yet, you can save space by packaging your files (compressing to either Zip or RAR formats).

5.      Storage Space

This is another cool android storage manager app that can help you take care of things especially if you’re running out of memory space. Most devices will have less actual storage space than specified by the manufacturer, and Storage Space helps you get a clearer picture of just how much you have available for your apps and data. You’ll be able to understand your device’s available storage from a partition point of view.
