Single-tap scan

With a large button front and center when you open the app, the Scan tool is about as simple as it gets.

App Manager

The App Manager lets you sort through your installed titles and makes it easy to quickly move or uninstall them. Unfortunately, its batch uninstall feature still needs work, as it asks you to confirm between each individual uninstall.

Hide your stuff

Advanced Mobile Care even comes with a Private locker that can't be accessed without a passcode.

Privacy Advisor

This feature takes inventory of any apps that require use of your private data. From there, it gives you the option to quickly and easily uninstall any that you feel are overreaching.

Sans help

While the app does have a menu of settings for you to customize your experience, it doesn't offer any support materials to help you fully understand it.
