    Meterberry question

    This might sound stupid but what does the recover memory function do. Ive noticed that about 50% of the time if I press it I usually lose memory, usually .5 to 1mb. The times that it doesn't take away memory it usually either doesn't change the memory at all or only .1 to .5mb increase. I don't have a big memory leak so I rarely press it, I'm just curious as to why it would cause less memory.

    It runs the built in memory cleaner that comes on the storm without you have to enable it to run automatically. Now as far as effectiveness when I ran meterberry I never once saw it recover memory. To run it will use available memory (hence the slight decrease you see) as well as battery.

    Similar to the event log on a Windows computer, there is an Event Log on your BlackBerry device where applications and the BlackBerry operating system itself can log information. Not only does this provide a central place to view all events from the system and applications, but it allows application developers to use an easy and consistent API for logging events so that each developer doesn't have to create his own.

    I tried the memory cleaning option on meterberry and didn't find it useful as it didn't show any difference in memory but I am sure drained little battery.

    I wouldnt even bother using it it. Doesnt make that much of a diff anyway. Nothing that a good batt pull would fix.
