This app does an excellent job at freeing up memory. However, I'd first like to say how idiotic all the negative reviews are from inexperienced users. I, who know the Android system very well and have been working with it since 1.6, can tell you that on its own, the Android system can't properly keep memory free. Many apps such as browsers and games, stay running using up your memory, thus killing battery life. On some phones, you literally need a task killer because of the low amount of RAM available. I ran several experiments on this on several different phones. The results were all the same for low end phones. They would crash and freeze consistently and the ones that actually had a task killer, ran just fine and battery life was days compared to the phones without task killers which were off most of the time because the Android OS couldn't last more than a couple of minutes with out crashing and the battery life wouldn't be longer than 1 day.
After noticing that this program gets high reviews at Google's App market while gets mainly 1's here I got curious and decided to try it out as long as it is free today. (I tend to take lots of apps when free, including many which I haven't even used yet).
I have only had it for part of a day so this might mean nothing, but I have not had problems with the Droid lagging yet today which I commonly have (ultimately requiring a reboot). The talk of defragmenting memory is nonsense, but perhaps somewhere along the way this program is helping to stop the problems which require me to reboot frequently (probably as I have much more loaded on this than the original Droid was interned to handle with tons of apps running from an ext3 partition on a rooted Droid running Gingerbread with a custom ROM. If this program really does eliminate the need for me to reboot as often, it would be worthwhile (especially when free).
The program has a log which states how much memory it...
Don't allow yourself to be misled by the legions of Android fan boys touting how wonderful its memory management is. The manufacturer's recommendation is to reboot the phone on a daily basis. So, in a nutshell, the Android developers have taken an OS noted for being able to run for months or years and turned it into something requiring a daily reboot. Yup, that's good memory management!
On to the fan boys claims as to coalescing memory. Those are the ones they claim are "defragging" memory because they lack the knowledge to correctly phrase the concept they are dealing with. As memory is used in the system it gets allocated in pieces. Once those pieces are freed for reuse, they are typically in small scattered chunks. If a request is made for memory, the system needs to hunt through the chunks of memory until it finds one large enough to fulfill the request. As more chunks are created, this list becomes bigger and bigger. If the application makes a...
