Apps crashing on your iPhone? Is it because they are running out of memory?

Use Free RAM to diagnose low memory and app crashes.

Free RAM allows you to free up runtime memory on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The iPhone or iPod Touch comes only with 128MB of runtime memory or RAM, 256MB on the iPhone 3GS. 512MB on the iPhone 4 and 4S, 1GB on the iPhone 5. This is not to be confused with the storage memory which is usually 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of persistent memory.

The iPhone or iPod Touch OS does not implement virtual memory, so this means that the OS does not make use of the storage memory to increase the size of memory available to running applications.

Some native applications that come with the iPhone continues to run even after you have closed them, for example, the iPod player, Phone application, Mail application and the Safari web browser.

As you continue to use your iPhone or iPod Touch, these continually running applications continue to consume limited and precious runtime memory that could otherwise be available to other applications such as games and news applications causing them to quit unexpectedly.

With the Free RAM application, you can see how much runtime memory is currently available for applications.

You can also view all the currently running applications or system processes. In the above screen shot, the iPod music player, Mail and the Phone applications are still running.

If memory drops too low, you should restart your iPhone or Force Quit Safari, Mail or iPod.

The app frees memory when the amount of available memory drops below a certain threshold. The thresholds for the iPhone 3G is 30 MB. For the iPhone 3GS and iPad, it is 100 MB. For the iPhone 4, it is 210 MB. For the iPhone 4S, it is about 300MB. For the iPhone 5, it is about 600MB.

"I really must say, this is a pretty useful app....I would rate this app a 4 1/2 because it really is a useful application to have on your iPod. It is well worth the the dollar and anyone who wants to free up some memory on your device, this is an app that you should check out."
