Same here. This isn't a BlackBerry that you need apps to free up memory and re-boot every 4 hours. I got mine a month ago and re-booted only once which was during a restore.What apps are you running? I have rebooted my iPad less than 10 times since I got it on launch day. It stays on all the time. I haven't encountered any memory problems.
Okay you didn't mention it was JB. I'm assuming you're speaking in terms of backgrounder? If that is the case, then to free the memory I would close all the apps that you do not need. I have gone with more than 10 apps open and never noticed any speed difference in the processing speed. I am not aware of any programs that allow you to free up memory however few may exist which others maybe able to point out.Maybe my terminology is wrong here. Im not talking about a full system reboot.
Ive rarely done one of those myself.
If Im going to play a game or do anything that may be memory intensive, then I like to free my memory.
As a JB iPad I have the free memory available showing at top with the time & date. If its under 100mb I prefer to free what I can.
So does anyone use apps to free memory or close programs in order to free memory?
So you feel you need to fix an issue before it exist's and here in lies your theological struggle as you question whether the problem would have even existed ?I suppose when I see the iPad begin to lose 1/2 or more of the available RAM as I open programs I start getting kinda 'jicky' & I feel the need to 'fix it' before it stalls.
YOU WANT? YOU PAY. BUY OR GO...I want more memory. I don't care if I don't need or use it, I'm American and I want it.
Seriously though, 256? Comeon. Anyone saying that is enough is justifying. It's 2010. They could have easily had it at 512 to begin with at minimal, if any , cost to bottom line or battery consumption.
I haven't done the page file hack, but probably will soon to test it's performance with the apps I need to multitask. I basically want to have Pandora or MLB running, Jump, and still be able to hit the web for 3 pages or so without those shutting down.
It just about does it as-is, but not quite.
