Dumpster – Recycle Bin is a new Android app that lets you restore deleted pictures, music files, videos and other type of files. If you’re using a Windows desktop computer, then you’re familiarized with the idea that if you delete something, you can still restore it by going to the recycle bin or trash.
But this feature isn’t as straightforward on our tablets or smartphones, and we need to make use of dedicated third-party applications for that. That’s what Dumpster tries to achieve – it works by catching files you would lose and hangs onto them like the recycle bin or trash can would.
Thus, files will be stored at full size, and you can keep them forever, manually delete, or schedule for the Dumpster to be emptied automatically when you want. The free version of Dumpster is supported by ads, and the in-app upgrade to remove will set you back $2.99. However, you should know that you cannot recover any files that were deleted before installing the app.
The app has been available for a while on the Play Store, but we’ve only recently caught glimpse of it and I’m sure you’ll find it a worthy addition to your collection of tools and utilities. The app will also let you preview your deleted photos and videos before recovering.
One of the most recent features is the ability to send files to Dumpster by using “share” or “send to” functions from any file manager or gallery app. You can also protect your privacy with a screen lock access restriction and you don’t even need an Internet for it to work.
There are some even more exciting features coming out soon, as well, such as the ability to undelete SMS text messages, restore contact deletes and recover uninstalled apps. The app will work just as well on smartphones as on tablets, so if you were looking for such a feature, then you should go ahead and install it on your devices.
