    that's pretty weird...something is definitely going on there. i have some stuff stored in my device memory so i can't tell for sure if the apps dropped it or not.

While everyone is starting wiht a lower app memory the device memory seems to actually be holding the apps
    FYI jn. My Device mem is at 879.2 with 876.3 free. Myt App free space reads 35.3. My 3rd party apps are Garmin Mobile; docs to go Prem with PDF (not working) Inteligolf; BBfilescout.

    1-securtity, then jl wipe
    2-loaded os
    3-checked app free(45.3MB) checked device(879.2)
    4-loaded backup file dropped app free memory to 35.2MB
    5-loaded 3rd party app backup dropped device memory to 778.4MB

    In short what I am sayin is even though we have a lower app memory it looks like all apps are finally saving to device memory. If my memory serves me correct this was not happening before it was backwards. If this proves to not be true and I am wrong just delete this thread. But I think this is true, because I have only a few apps and my app free is 37.2 almost always withing .6MB and my device memory has never been as low as it is now (860ish MB)
    device and app memory are 2 different things. the app memory acts somewhat as the phones RAM. this is why as you have more apps running it goes down. and when you close them, it goes back up.

    Yes... But before 5.0 it seemed the more apps u had even met running the lower app memory got... Now it seems the device memory goes down for installed apps and app memory down for running apps like it should.

    Might be coincidental as that would require a hardware change not an OS update.

    Thank you!! thats all I was really looking for through all this.. I thought that was the case so when I saw things changing in a way I hadnt before I wondered if anyone else had or had I misunderstood that its a hardware limitations.,, Thanks JLevy, no matter what Bryan and Laney say, I know you are doing stuff here

    Edit- are there any other questions or comments on this? I will give this until 12 EST(NOON) it is 930a right now.
