    For my application, the Instrument shows that on average, my application uses around 3.5 Mb. Is it consider too much ? I cache a lot because of performance reason.

    And i also heard that some application after running for a while will be slower and slower. Can memory consumption be one of the reason ?

    according to "10 iPhone Memory Management Tips" from this site, which i found by googling "iphone memory":

    the following is from apple's official documentation:
    1. The Virtual Memory System
    2. Observing Low Memory Warnings
    3. Using Memory Efficiently
    4. Reducing Your Application’s Memory Footprint
    5. Allocating Memory Wisely
