    "I am horrible about taking multiple selfies and family pictures that typically occur because of my thumb hitting the button twice on accident. After multiple frustrated attempts at removing all these photos, my wife suggested that I try the Remo Duplicate Photos Remover app that is available in the adroid app store. After downloading and running the initial duplicate scan, the app found over 200 duplicates that were easily removed with a simple press of a button. I couldn't be happier with this app!!"

    "Flic is a fantastic app that manages your phone's photos quickly and painlessly. The app itself, however, does not delete duplicate photos automatically. Instead, it offers a modern dating app-style of swiping left or right to remove or keep photos, one by one. It's a pretty neat concept and is rated pretty well."

    "I personally do not see the need for this type of app. I guess that for someone who takes a lot of photos and stores a great deal of images, then this app may be useful for them. I don't believe this app is ready enough to really understand what only the owner of the images understands in relation to the images. For that reason, it is not reliable in the ability to be absolute in deciding the true value of an image slated for deletion. If images stored have any real value, then this should still be controlled by the human decision process."

    "This is a great app for getting rid of duplicate photos on your phone. Through some strange voodoo magic (it groups similar images together), I can now get rid of the poor or test versions of my pictures without hunting through multiple directories. Seriously, this is a great app, and you'll wonder how you went without it for so long."

    "Below are the advantages of FoneDog PowerMyMac: * It helps speed up your Mac device by freeing up more space within it. * It has a very powerful scanning feature that helps search for duplicate files, junk files, system files, clutter, etc. * It allows you to clean up junk files, delete duplicate files, locate and find similar images, clean up large and old files, remove or uninstall applications completely by removing app leftovers, and it helps in the protection of redundant searching history. Plus, it helps you manage extensions, shred files, and clean browsers. * Every one of each feature can be used with a few simple clicks. * Each scanned result can be filtered and sorted depending on factors such as size, time, date, etc. * It gives you the ability to see the status of your Mac device including CPU status, disk, and memory usage, etc. * It helps you detect identical files in order to free up more space on your device by making sure no two or more files are the same. At least, you get to remove redundancy in your Mac device."
