    Default QuickPull equivalent for PlayBook?

    I use QP on my Curve for a daily reboot to recover memory. Does the PB need a daily reboot to recover memory and is there an app like QP?

    It doesn't need a reboot unless you run into some problem.
    To reboot: hold the power and volume + buttons until the screen goes blank. The PB will restart on its own

    I guess using the various Battery Icon options to restart or turn-off could be considered the equivalent. There were/are apps to 'eat' memory that could recover memory in appworld.

    Just an aside, the Android runtime module is not loaded into memory after a reboot, it is loaded upon the first time an Android app is invoked and then remains in memory until one of two conditions are met

    A. The PlayBook is rebooted

    B. Avalible RAM is getting filled with too many native apps then the OS will start removing unused apps usually starting with the Android runtime module, in fact you can force a removal of the runtime module by purposely over loading memory with running apps. There are other treads on this.

    It is loaded upon boot. The easiest way to check this is to do a fresh boot. Check the RAM, wait till it stabilizes. Open as many native apps as possible. Sooner or later check the RAM, you'll find that it's considerably higher when all those native apps are closed. Open and Android app, you have a BlackBerry logo on a black screen, that's the Android Runtime initializing. Remember that with a fresh reboot it will auto load the runtime so that Android apps load with relatively the same speed as native apps, sometimes they load faster than native apps.
