    How to identify apps that are hogging/leaking menmory?

    Advertisement



    Is this possible? I want to know the apps that are making my memory go from 18 MB's to 2 MB's in one day. I installed BBFile Scout because I thought it might show me the current memory sizes for the apps, but it does not. What are the main causes of memory loss? I know its a common problem, but it seems like certain apps would be more to blame then others?

    If you don't close your browser through the options when your through using it,it can suck up a bunch of juice.apps that do updates too often can use it up too.

    I think you can check open apps that are running by pressing and holding the alt button and return key. Keeping the alt button depressed, you can scroll thru the apps and see which ones are running.

    Just make sure to follow above steps for each app you open and that will reduce your mem leaking and also all the app that runs in the. Bckgrnd will affect your mem leak for example weather apps

    OEM you should only have 5 apps running in the background. I have like 8 or 9 I run mine leaner too though, as I have done away with some unneeded things.

    If you open app switcher you'll always see browser, phone, messages, and if you haven't removed it, bbm. As mentioned you'll see the other open/running programs.

    Your browser stays up. Its on the five main apps that stay on. You can't close it like you would a 3rd party app. And it doesn't suck that much memory or power unless you're using it.

    Thanks to this I was able to see what was draining my battery twice a day. The culprit was Google Maps. I guess it was working hard updating my location as I sat on my butt at work.
