9to5Toys Specials currently has PhoneClean iOS Cleaner for $10. It is a great way to lose the clutter and speed up your iPhone or iPad.

App downloads are a centerpiece of owning an iOS device, but with each app comes a whole load of unwanted data and memory use. PhoneClean is an app for PC and Mac that helps you sweep out unused apps from your device, along with unwanted caches, cookies, messages and attachments, crash logs, and media files. It can also clean up your browsing history for speedier web surfing, and fix corrupt or partially synced files, such as music and video. As a safety net, PhoneClean backs up everything on your phone before every clearout, and if you have jailbroken your device, you can shrink the apps you want to keep by losing inessential components.

  • Finds and removes hidden temp, cookie, and cache files (temporarily incompatible with iOS 8.3)
  • Deletes private SMS, iMessage, MMS, as well as the associated pictures, audio and videos
  • Cleans up all your internet browsing history
  • Removes discarded emails and attachments for webmail
  • Gets rid of useless app crash logs and system notifications
  • Fixes corrupt and partially synced music, video, and other media files to make them playable
  • Removes unwanted apps, photos, outdated Notes, and Calendar events
  • Shrinks app sizes by removing all unnecessary files (for jailbroken devices)
  • Creates full backups prior to any cleaning action

Pick up PhoneClean at 74% off the standard price.

mohu-leaf-50-xbox-one-tuner-deal

‘Neutron A’ Magnetic Phone & Tablet Car Mount: $30 Shipped (Orig. $40, CA Tax Only)

 

0e51ca7975b14187969659bc33750a052dc4fb72 main hero image

9to5Toys Specials currently has the ‘Neutron A’ Magnetic Phone and Tablet Car Mount for $30 with free shipping. It uses powerful magnets for an instant secure hold.

The benefits of being able to use your phone safely while driving are obvious. But getting your phone into many holders is a challenge, so the Neutron A’s magnetic mounting is refreshing. You simply stick a small patch onto the back of your phone or tablet which makes it strongly attracted to the Neutron A’s magnet. As a result, you simply have to hold your device up to the mount for it to lock into place. The mount and the stick-on pad are held on by strong-but-removable 3M VHB tape (usually used in aircraft maintenance), meaning you can use the Neutron A with a case.

  • Allows quick removal and attachment of your device
  • Machined from solid aerospace aluminum
  • Holds devices up to 1 lb
  • Contains shielded magnets that will never lose their hold (even dirt and temperature resistant)
  • Includes 3M VHB tape that is easily installed and removed
  • Works with a case attached to your device
