    Clear Cache usually refers just to the browser, that's in settings.

    Now System Cache... you need to be a little clearer on what you are wanting to accomplish.

    You wanting to free memory? Clear out clutter on your internal storage? Never found a really good app for those (maybe someone else has).

    I found doing a clean install of the OS was a great thing to do about every four months.... but it's a very drastic solution.

    A simply restart would help! I think!

    I'm echoing Dunt Dunt Dont, but there is no BB10 app that will accomplish what you'd like.

    You can clear the cache on apps individually, if the app allows it, but haven't seen anything that will perform this simultaneously. You're right about the BB10 apps that claim to clear the cache. No changes are made - they just go through the motions.

    To clear the data cache of an app individually you can access device system settings, storage and access, device storage details, and then tap the app of interest. Clear data is indicated if the option is available. In the instance that it's not then deleting and reinstalling is an option.

    Yup, I'm using that regularly. It's a great app to remove cache and boost the free RAM a bit

    Even Cleaner App doesn't touch any BB10 app data cache, aside from the browser. The android cleaners also are unable to access the BB10 cache from within the sandboxed runtime.

    Unfortunately, most apps don't show this option. I don't even see it for CB, but I know it is in the options of the app itself.

    I acknowledge that. The BB10 OS doesn't suffer from the same issues that plagued BlackBerry BBOS (memory leaks) though and actually manages the cache well. Occasionally, I will clear the cache of an app myself knowing it's counterproductive in most cases (out of habit).

    Yes, but some would probably build up quite a bit like news apps, reddit in motion, etc. How does BlackBerry 10 "manage" these? The cache will build up regardless--what is the advantage?

    The answer to that is beyond me. Perhaps an app developer could provide insight toward the reason some apps have the option while others lack it.

    But the Twitter app is known to slow down and become a hog because of its large cache. But you're saying that's normal?

    I believe any app, browser or program utilizing a cache is going to grow the more it is used - that's the whole idea. It allows quicker access to the information you've called. If your device internal memory is subsequently compromised or the cache becomes corrupt then yes, I'd say a slowdown is inevitable. Apparently there are recommendations BlackBerry has designated for handling the app data cache that not every developer adheres to. Again, beyond my scope of understanding.

    It is what it is. At this point, whether the process could be improved, better implemented, or changed is not going to happen. So, when your app appears to slow and you suspect it perhaps a corrupt cache or limited by reduced internal memory then you're stuck deleting and reinstalling that app for the hopeful improvement if it doesn't offer built-in clear app data function.

    Yes, but you made it sound like it isn't necessary and BlackBerry 10 handles it on its own.

    In my case, and many others, Twitter is the only app with slowdowns. So clearly something's wrong with Twitter's cache. Unfortunately, a reinstall of Twitter seems to be inevitable then... thanks.
