Chapter 15. Improving Your Lifestyle wit... > Keep Your Treo Neat and Clean

Keep Your Treo Neat and Clean

The last stop on your little tour of life-altering Treo applications is the NeatFreak Pack, which is actually an application suite by Northglide. NeatFreak Pack consists of two applications, Uninstall Manager and Cleanup, both of which help you keep your device clean of unwanted and unnecessary files that accumulate over time and eat up valuable memory. Uninstall Manager helps you fully uninstall applications that you no longer use, and Cleanup is helpful for tracking down orphan files no longer used by any applications. These two applications work hand in hand to help you keep your Treo streamlined, at least for applications and the memory they occupy. You can download the NeatFreak Pack from the Northglide website at http://www.northglide.com/products.html.

If you have any experience with the Registry Editor on Windows computers, you'll be right at home with the Cleanup application. If not, you'll want to exercise a good dose of caution when it comes to cleaning up files on your Treo. Cleanup gives you a fair amount of flexibility in terms of the files it allows you to clean up, and if you get too aggressive, you can potentially get in trouble by removing a file that an application actually needs. If you make sure to back up files before you delete them, you should be okay. Figure 15.12 shows a screen in the Cleanup application with a list of unused preferences that can potentially be deleted.
