    Memory disappearing

    Anyone have a list of apps with memory leaks? I have installed uninstalled over and over to try to find the leaker and I'm at a loss.. Like one meg/hour. Been up 13 hours and I'm down 13 meg


    Running v5 over .141

    That's not too bad...depending on what you started with. Assuming you started in the 30 - 40's

    In my experience each phone handles these apps differently That being said I will list the ones that I have used that caused it

    Air traffic control
    Weatherbug
    Quickpull
    Most themes
    BB app world (for some this is a cause but I don't have any issues)
    Viigo

    Now the above are what has caused leaks for me

    To add a few;

    BerryWeather
    MeterBerry
    Vlingo
    Quick Launch

    all these apps run in the background even if you close them properly. Any app that monitors your mem status or batt status will run in the background
    BerryWeather is a total mem hog
    Vlingo depends on your set ups

    These are just a few to add to the list

    TalkLock
    Visual Voicemal
    VZ Navigator
    Battery Booster (It supposed to increase battery life which is questionable at best but since it run in the background chomps away at memory)

    This is in addition to those mentioned.above.

    Weather bug was a hungry beast, as was first incarnation of Viigo.
    I've now dropped Weather bug and Viigo, and noticed an increase of memory.

    But with the replacement of Weather bug for Berry Weather, my memory stays the same (weird) as before it's install.:33:

    Berryweather worked nice but I did have a bit of a memory leak with it. I found simple weather to work better with memory.

    Running straight .132
    agree with many of the apps listed as being a potential memory drain.
    MeterBerry probably is not a major offender and removing it likely won't improve the situation much. I ran my device with MeterBerry being the only app "running in background". Here's the result.


    EDIT:THANKS NEO for the attachment advice!

    i dont think meterberry is the issue , i think its other things in the OS

    it seems like with every OS its either battery life , or memory thayt sucks , i rather have a better battery cuzz i can always do pulls to get memory back

    Don't know what I've done incorrectly or if it's a system issue.
    Anyway, it was a screenshot showing 41.4 MB while I slept - over a 6 to 7 hour period...no apparent memory drain.
    You aren't doing anything wrong...there is an issue with attachments.
    hopefully resolved when we get on the new server.
