Question Moon+ reader does not cleanup tmp files

After reading/deleting a couple of .cbr files, I noticed that memory usage still increased, even when deleting the original files.

A quick inspection learned that Moon+ uses a "hidden" directory ".MoonReader" which it fills with thumbs-images of the books covers. However, on deleting an e-book the according thumb images are not removed and remain forever.

The same is more or less true for .cbr files, in which image files are unpacked in (tmp) directory ".MoonReader/cache/...". As those .cbr image files can be quite huge, they continue to occupy space, even when the original .cbr file is deleted.

Has anybody also seen this behavior and is perhaps an automatically solution known to exist for this (unwanted) phenomena?

That explains something I discovered this morning.

Sending an email to the app's developer is probably the most efficient way. Moon+ seems to get updates frequently and my "brightness" issue (not saving it correctly) was fixed in a recent update.

From the app developer .....

hi, when the comics cache is larger than 120MB, the reader will clear all of them automatically. (as they're saved on sdcard, 120MB additional space should be acceptable?), the user can also delete the cache folder (/sdcard/books/.moonreader/cache) manually at any time.

Can you provide me a link to that quote? The problem is that you cannot set cache sizes as suggested in your quote. Further as I'm running Moon+ on a Nexus 7 (2012) with 32Gb size is no issue, hence the remark is strange. Other readers I tried cleanup fine.

Contact the developer directly, his email is at the bottom of the site's home page.
