Windows Phone 8 has one major problem with its storage handling. The phone storage (Other / Apps) grows and grows until your phone has no more space left.

This App tries to reduce this storage with the following trick:

* It completely fills your internal storage
* Then you restart your phone
* Hopefully, some storage will be released
* Remove filled storage manually using this App

Remarks:
The result (gained free storage) will differ from phone to phone. There’s no guarantee that Windows Phone will free some storage. Usually, it does when you use this App for the first time.

-------------------------

If you use this App to block the Windows Phone storage to avoid continuous storage growth, you could use the new Control Mode. If you need some storage to install a new App, just release some Megabytes.

    If you continue to do it, it will slowly build more space

    Sucks. Stupid broken Windows phone needs to use this app or do a hard reset, but the app crashes immediately when I try to open it. Why? Its not like its a magically graphically enhanced application. Ridiculous.

    I have tried to install and use this app three times so far and every time I try to run it, it crashes. Too bad as it sounds promising.

    Did not work on my Samsung Ativ S. Did not reduce the "other" folder at all. Tried several times. What a waste of time.
