Re: Application Memory

Yes u can! I get the fullness of my sd card by using an app from app world called AERIZE CARD LOADER. There are some extras required with u pc though. 9530 Storm user. Some people get mad at the out of the box use of the storm, but I seek those things that they complain about. Never settle for a str8 no answer where there is a will there is a way. Seen a storm on AT&t and an phone on verizon. Jailbroke and unlocked, some shortcomings but was done. We storms are better even though apple has 32gb we have removable 16gb which makes ours unlimited. Also in sms mode iphone does not have the full qwerty keyboard. Take that. 4 laughs I was in the apple store with my ringtone on 10 and my phone rang with th basic phone ringtone. Lol lmao u should have been there.

Hi Awstorm and welcome to the forums.

I read the website for the utility. It is says you are able to save the apps on the media card.

That's great. However when the app runs on the device, guess where it runs.

In the application memory which is pre-allocated  memory and cannot be increased.

Thanks,

Re: Application Memory

Hello,

 

I have the BB Storm 9500 and i'm having some memory issues.

I put one memory card with 2G ans transfer all my multimedia (photos, videos, music) to the card.

Then, i went to the memory menu and i saw that i had no free space on the device memory.

 

Today appears one message to delete some applications to have more free space on the device memory, but i just have a google maps app.

 

What i'm doing wrong? how can i improve my memory performance..?

If i go to the memory menu, i have this information:

Total decive memory: 879,2 MB

Free device memory: 874,1 MB

 

why i BB is too slow and show me allerts saying to del appl. ?

 

that you for your help,

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

There are three types of potential memory on a BB: 1) Application Memory, 2) Device Memory, and 3) Media/SD Card Memory

Application Memory -- This is the most crucial; it is the protected (not user accessible), dedicated, and fixed (in size) space that is available as the destination for the installation of applications (plus some application storage, overhead and such). You cannot touch AppMemory. You cannot improve the maximum AppMemory that your BB has. It is what it is. Applications can only install here...there is no option.

Device Memory -- This is space on your BB that you can touch to store files, pictures, media, etc. Typically, it is not terribly large, but it is available to you.

SD/Media Card Memory -- This is what it says...your SD card, for you to store files, media, pictures, etc. It can be as large as your BB OS can support...see this KB:

 

On some devices/OS levels, you can only see "File Free" (Options > Status), which I think is equivalent to AppMemory. On other devices, you can see all three memory usage levels (Options > Memory). Here are some guidelines to use:

 

Lastly, it is always important to properly close applications when you are done with them. Using the Back or the Red key will not do this -- those leave it to the app to decide what to do...and some will leave themselves resident in memory, consuming resources on your BB, slowing the overall performance. Rather, to close an app, press blackberry_logo.jpg and select "Close" or "Exit"...that will force the application to be closed, freeing up for your new use the resources it was consuming. Some apps will always remain running (typically -- BBMessenger, Browser, Homescreen, Phone, and Messages)...but, you should still close them properly - especially the Browser...if it is left on an active web page, it will not only consume extra resources but battery power as well.

 

 

Further, anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure. Some have taken to doing this on a regular basis as a preventive measure...some as frequently as once per day. Others have obtained the QuickPull app to automate a simulated Batt-Pull.

Best!

 

Good luck!
