    Let me preface by saying that those memory apps are useless and often inaccurate.

    Free isn't necessarily all of the "free" memory you have left. Inactive counts towards that too, and active apps can be terminated as needed. iOS works in a "be as greedy as you want" philosophy in regards to memory.

    Its normal. On most UNIX based systems, like iOS and Mac OS X, free memory is wasted memory.
