    Heads up to all who use this program to clear their ipad/iphone memory - the new update (1.5) has removed this functionality. Don't upgrade or you will lose it too! Sent an email to the developer and waiting to hear back. I can only suspect Apple made him pull it?!?!? :confused:

    Clear memory? There's no way for an app to do that, except by filling all the memory itself, which causes the OS to shut down all your other apps. But that's a pointless thing to do, because when you open another app that needs more memory, exactly the same thing will happen. So I guess this will save you a pointless task? :)

    Thanks for your explanation, but maybe I did not explain it correctly as I am not a developer. According the developer's website it can "free up memory." Anyway it did seem to work for me (and a host of others if you check out the terrible reviews now being given it since the update).

    I suffered the update today. I'm annoyed. It used to be a must have App.

    Is there any way to selectively decline an App update ?

    Hmm.. I guess there's a couple of ways it might help situations like this:

    1. You open a big game or something, it starts up, then needs more memory. The system will provide it, but it'll have to shut down other apps while the game is running. That results in the game slowing down + stuttering a bit until the apps have all quit.

    2. An app might ask for more memory, not get it straight away, and crash. That shouldn't happen, but I bet it does ;)

    No :(

    And the developer's response:

    Hi!

    Apple removed app from sale because of this feature. We were asked to
    remove memory cleaning from app. That's why app was not sold from 1-st
    september till yesterday.
    We hope that we will be able restore functionality of our app soon. Stay
    tuned!

    Please don't upgrade and make a backup copy of version 1.4.4.

    Sincerely yours, XZone Software Support Team


    Hopefully, they'll be able to get it back!!

    Yes there is - Don't click update All

    If u want it back then go into your trash can if u are on a mac or recycle bin if u are on windows and find the ipa file for that app. restore it from trash back to itunes folder and delete newly updated version. Remove the app from your ipad if its installed and then just sync it again

    Anyone have the 1.4.4 ipa file?

    I suffered the update as well, and while doing other work cleaned out my recycle bin. I have not been able to pull it back. Does anyone have a copy of this file to share?

    FYI - supposedly this functionality has been restored in the new version 1.6 just released. Haven't tried it myself yet, but reviews on Apple indicate it's back to clearing memory again. Only now it requires a slightly different way to invoke/activate.
