Is it possible to develop some kind of clean-up program for Sailfish OS? Currently in beta mode and updates coming constantly (and user adding/removing apps) it seems there's traces of previous files and junk that take up space and can't be easily removed. I am afraid that the cache memory will get full and slow down the phone, I used Linux Fedora to clean these traces that seem to accumulate quite a bit. I use only native Jolla applications, I did not mess up my phone with android applications (with advertisements). Thanks in advance. I have studied Jolla phone and I have found that the program remains after the removal of a lot of stuff in memory. Even entire folders.

EDIT: Did some editing on the text above and hope this gains more attention. I also feel that it's utterly important to have a good clean up program / ability. I'm Windows user and every ones in a while I do "fresh install" for the whole OS so I'd like to do this to my Jolla as well. When experiencing with android apps I had to reset my device >5 times and I believe there's junk that takes up space now.

So what are the possibilites of this program? It should be fairly easy to use, preferably not via terminal etc.

To reach a larger audience, please use English instead of (in this case) Finnish.

If I remember correctly, not even amongst the Jolla employees everyone are native Finnish speakers.

(via Google Translate)

Tavoittaa suuremman yleisön, käyttäkää Englanti sijaan (tässä tapauksessa) Suomi.

Jos muistan oikein, ei edes joukossa Jolla työntekijät kaikki ovat kotoisin Suomen puhujia.

Good point well observed. Systems clutter up and occasionally it is good to completely reflash with a clean factory image which unfortunately we are prevented from doing by Qualcomm licence conditions:(

@olli - Google Translate is "ok" at its best, but I've noticed that it really has trouble with agglutinative languages (e.g. Finnish). ;-)
