These days everyone just loves to click photos with their smartphones. Also, much of the office work requires us to click and send photos or screenshots, which later on become useless. It might be numerous similar looking photos or blurred ones – to hand pick them separately in order to delete them one by one, can be quite an ordeal. Also, they hog up a large space in your phone’s memory and can slacken off your phone’s performance to a great deal. Especially, if such photos are exceedingly large in number, then you definitely need an app to jettison them all at once, than to scroll through all such photos individually and tediously. Therefore, today we have come up with 5 great photo cleaner apps which will help you to get rid of those purposeless photos and help you save space in your phone’s memory.
Top 5 Photo Cleaner Apps for Android and iPhone Users
1) Gallery Doctor – Photo Cleaner
This app is readily available in the Play Store for Android users. It identifies unwanted photos from a variety of types like blurry photos, dark shots, poorly clicked images, and also similar looking photos. After that, it asks for your choice and then only deletes those photos which you approve of. It even lists out the long videos, WhatsApp photos, and screenshots too for review, therefore helping you to achieve the most effective cleaning of your phone’s space. It is merely not restricted to photos only but also scans the lengthy videos effectively.
That’s why we can say that the show stealer feature of this superstar app is that, not only it deletes the similar looking camera photographs, but also provides you with an array of other options like cleaning up large videos, screenshots, WhatsApp images and many more.

2) Remo Duplicate Photos Remover
Here is another photo cleaner app for both Android and iOS users. We found this app to be really fast with a very simple interface. However, we must say that the scanning time required for duplicate photos depends largely on the overall number of photos which your device is having. But even so, the app is very slick with its operations. We were pretty amazed at how fast this app performs. It sorts out the photos into two categories- the first one having all “exactly looking photos” and the second one which has “similar looking photos”( i.e. not exactly same photos). The app works great and is smooth with its functioning. Also, we can say that the user interface was very simple and a no-brainer to use.
3) Duplicate Photos Remover
This is a yet another handy app designed for the purpose of junk photo-cleaning. A stunning feature of this cool app is that it provides three modes of scanning for duplicate and similar looking pictures. The first mode is the “Camera Images” in which only the pictures clicked by your camera will be checked for duplicity. The second mode is the standard “Full Scan” in which the entire gallery will be searched for duplicate photos. And then it has got the much needed “Select Folder” mode which watches out for duplicate pictures only in the selected folder, thereby making the whole operation very “to-the-point” and timesaving as well. This, for sure, makes the app stand out in the most noticeable manner. We have to tell you that even the “Full Scan” did not take too much of time, hence testifying for the stunning speed of this app.
After selecting the targeted pictures, we were really amazed at the rate this app carried out its operations. This was much better than other apps. Moreover, it supports external memory too, in case you use a memory card. You can go for this app for its selective approach to picture scanning, its snappy operations, and simple interface.

4) Cleaner – Delete Duplicate Photos, Clean-Storage
This one is exclusively for the iOS users for free. With this app, you can search for all the duplicate and similar looking photos in your Gallery and make a room in your device’s memory easily. Also, you can find all the useless videos simply with a single tap to free even more space. It has an auto-mark feature which enables you to save the best shot and delete the rest of the similar looking pictures. To tell you further, using this app requires iOS 9.0 or above. Also, this app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Moreover, this is a super cleaner app indeed at only 21.8 MB. To get all such features contained in a single app, that too without paying anything is something you should definitely try for.

5) Duplicates Remover
This app made a cut to this list because of its very small file size. With only a few MBs in size, you just can’t ignore this one. We truly loved how it came up with duplicate photos and similar looking photos separately after the scan in a very small duration. To offer such feature-rich functionality at only a mere size of 2 MB is rather stunning. It will take a very inconsiderable space in your RAM but definitely save you a thousand time more space in your phone’s gallery. You can go for this app if you are running short of your phone’s RAM. With its ultra plain and simple interface, along with its minimalistic and basic approach, this app offers you the fundamental experience of a junk photo cleaner app. You can easily get it at Play Store.

Now, having presented before you a list of 5 of the best junk photo cleaner apps, we expect that you can easily find which one works best for you. We quite liked the “Duplicate Photos Remover” app due to its selective approach to scanning photos to save time. It can single out a particular folder to scan only that folder, rather than looking through the complete photo gallery in your system. Also, we found it to be unbelievingly fast.
On the other hand, “Gallery Doctor- Photo Cleaner” gives you a more comprehensive and full-fledged experience related to a photo cleaner app due to its wide range of features and its ability to clean up videos as well.
Having said that, you must check yourself from the list which app best suits your needs in order to get rid of good-for-nothing pictures on your phone.
