Is it possibile to add a new feature (or utility) just to delete all caches of Android apps at once (or a checklist to choose which caches at once)?

It think it SHOULD be inside "Android support" settings, or inside "Sailfish Utilities" settings.

EDIT 2018-04: not yet added as a system utility in v2.1.4

good Idea, and It should include Dalvik Cache also

Such an utility already exists: https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=com.frozendevs.cache.cleaner

Works nicely by hitting the thrash can symbol.

I mean something by Jolla, integrated in Sailfish OS.. I don't want to add something to subtract something else ;-)

Ah, so your [request] is not about the functionality, but about "getting it from Jolla".

Well, cannot help you then.

Not exactly.. It's more like "getting it from Sailfish OS" :D

@ Plaikao >> I agree , as we know that 3rd party App is available which might harm the hardware. It should be developed within SF OS , rather than using numerous 3rd party app. So it would mean for every function we want to have we need 3rd party app :-(
