If you’re running a budget Android device, it can be rather daunting to experience slow speeds and lag. Fortunately, there are a few solutions, and today we are going to take a look at one of the simpler fixes: A performance boosting app. While there are several on the Play Store, we’ve got our hands on one of the better ones: All-In-One Toolbox.
Unlike most other cleaning apps, the All-In-One Toolbox app is straightforward from the moment you click the app icon. You’re taken directly to the main screen and don’t have to sign up or read boring tutorials. Once you are in, you can tweak a wide plethora of settings. Mostly related to features of the program, you can adjust anything from the notification icon to enabling silent boot (which mutes sounds at boot up and shut down).
The first thing that you may notice is the simplicity and cleanliness of the app. There are no confusing sections or areas to get lost in. One central place branches off to the features, and it’s a breeze to use.
Speaking of features, there are three main tools for you to use. “Clean” is a function to clear out storage hogs by cleaning the cache and any excessive files that the app detects. It cleared out 1.12GB on the first clean, proving its effectiveness.
You also get “Boost”, which is designed to clean up RAM and memory. You can select which processes you want killed, and 567MB got cleaned the first time around. However, the majority of this will soon come back so it’s more of a gimmick than an actual useful feature.
And lastly, there’s the “Toolbox”. This divides into many handy tools, such as App2SD and Backup & Restore. These features allow you to move apps to your external SD card and create a backup of content before you reset your phone. This also rids the need of having several different apps to fulfill these actions.
Perhaps the best feature here is the ability to download plugins. Some of these include “GameBooster Plugin” and “AppLock Plugin”, all features that you can easily get if you want them. Again, these may come in handy as they eliminate the need to have several different apps that take up large storage space.
Everything was smooth and no glitches or lag was experienced. There are adverts, but these can be removed by purchasing the full version, in-app, for $3.99.
What we liked:
- Clean and easy user interface
- Range of handy features
- Stability and effectiveness
And not so much:
- Annoying notifications
4 out of 5 stars
At the end of the day, the All-In-One Toolbox app is really ideal for users who have poor performance from their devices. The effective range of features leaves no one in the dust with a slow phone.

So can you say with complete confidence that this app is actually doing the things it says it’s doing? I used to have CleanMaster, and it purportedly did all sorts of crazy things to “improve performance”, but all articles I read showed that Android does all of this stuff inherently, and all these apps are are nothing but a means to provide advertisements. I actually got BETTER performance once I uninstalled CleanMaster. This strikes me as the same kind of snake oil.
