Android app to erase all files in folder with one click

The title almost says it all lol

Does any one know about na Android app to erase all files in a folder with one click?
I know how to erase it.
My problem here is with my father in law. He's to old to learn "complicated" stuff and needs a one click app to erase all files inside the download folder.
Some documents he is going to download and read are classified and need to be erased after he reads them.

Does any one know a simple app to do this?

Thx in advanced,
Miguel

I bought Tasker... but i'm struggling to create the task...
Molnár IstvánHelpDesk / ProgrammerCommented:
a way is to delete the Download folder after that create it
justaphaseAuthor Commented:
the download folder is a system folder used by the OS and many apps... can't delete it
justaphaseAuthor Commented:
YES! Did it with Tasker!
I asked for help in the google group here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/tasker/ripGToJPlhg
The final code task was like this:
 A1: List Files [ Dir:test Match:*pdf Include Hidden Files:Off Use Root:Off Variable:%files_list ] 
 A2: Variable Set [ Name:%len To:%files_list(#) Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] 
 A3: For [ Variable:%file Items:%files_list(1:%len) ] If [ %len > 0 ]
 A4: Delete File [ File:%file Shred Level:0 Use Root:Off ] 
 A5: Flash [ Text:%file deleted Long:Off ] 
 A6: End For 

Open in new window

After the task finished, i transformed it in a App. And it's done!

Thx!
