App Optimizer is a user-friendly and intuitive piece of software whose main function is to help you compress your applications' database files, thus saving valuable disk space on your system.
Following an uneventful installation process, you can launch the program and it will enable you to select the preferred scanning mode from the available options in the start screen, namely 'Quick Scan', which will only look through a few folders, 'Full Scan', where the entire computer is analyzed and 'Manual Scan' that lets you choose the disks that should be investigated.
Regardless of the used mode, App Optimizer will analyze the items and automatically perform a series of optimization processes on the detected applications. Depending on the option you go for and the size of your disk, along with the size of your databases, you might have to wait for a while before actually obtaining results.
At the same time, you do not have the possiblity of interrupting the process other than by closing the tool. However, in the case of fewer items, the optimization occurs almost immediately.
The main window of the utility features three distinct buttons, 'Optimize Known', which will work with the databases discovered during the last performed scan; 'Manual Scan' which allows you to pick a specific drive that you want App Optimizer to focus on and 'Quick Scan'.
The lower panel of the window displays an activity report, enabling you to view the total number application databases that were found, along with the initial size and the new dimensions. Additionally, it calculates the total percentage and the KB gained from the optimization operation.
To conclude, App Optimizer is a useful and easy to use program that allows you to easily gain space on your PC by reducing the size of your apps' databases, which in turn will also influence their running speed for the better.
