Tweak Android for Optimum Performance part 2

When you fi rst launch the app, you will notice two buttons in the top-right corner. These will help you to use System Tuner effi ciently – the right-most icon is the Settings menu (for confi guring how various tweaks are applied) while the icon to the left will display the main menu.

General system tweaks
One of the most powerful options available in System Tuner is the SD cache tuner, available from the System Tweaks menu. You can check and change the Cache Size, check the usage of your SD card, and via Boot settings, clear the cache for speed improvements.

Task killing apps are very popular as more and more apps and utilities become tougher to close. System Tuner has this covered in the Task Manager screen. Individual apps can be closed by selecting them and tapping Kill, while Kill-all culls all your open apps.
