Sometimes, we all just need a little space. On our phones, specifically. And by space, I mean gigabytes - more of them, ideally. So, that's why Avast came out with an app called GrimeFighter: a precision tool to fend off byte-encroachment caused by apps with out of control caching.

Have your mood-matching Spotify playlists eaten a 400MB hole in your pocket? Wipe 'em out. Don't need those cached maps of Thailand for that trip you took last summer anymore?

Avast Gives Free One-Year Premium Licenses (Worth $15) To Users Who Paid For Theft Aware Before Avast Acquired It

Theft Aware was possibly the most ingenious Android security solution back before it was bought out by Avast. At the time, developer ITAgents promised paying customers that they would be remembered once Avast rolled out a premium version of their mobile security suite. Now that time has come. Avast is giving away free one-year licenses to anyone who previously purchased Theft Aware, a savings of $15.

After getting a glimpse of Avast's new mobile security solution a few weeks ago, I just had to dive in and give the app a full review. Avast, the long-awaited marriage of Avast and IT Agents' Theft Aware (see our review), certainly doesn't disappoint.
