This app promises to run "fstrim" without root but I am not sure if it works [Resolved]

I am not sure if this app works. Can someone please help me? My phone is new and in its warranty period so I can't root it yet. I tried this app but I am not sure if it actually did something. Unlike the other famous app on the PlayStore for fstrim, it doesn't require root access which is quite incredible.

I highly doubt it. I use an app called Trimmer which requires root to trim /cache, /data, /system. I installed this app & ran only selecting cache, but it shower trimeed cache & data. I ran a logcat, did not catch anything. So most probably it is a snake oil or at best it clears your cache.
