    It’s not up to some silly app to decide whether certain photo’s are ‘bad’ or for what reason I decided not to delete them by myself, or why I keep some doubles in different series. You have to check this apps’ selection manually anyway so you don’t win any time with this. Better simply manage photos by yourself on a bored Sunday and run CCleaner after. :)
