    That's good! Try to keep it over 20MBs or 20000000.

    The memory he is talking about is different, free memory is like RAM in a computer, it's used for running programs. Cards are for media storage only songs, docs, pics etc.

    The memory card can only be used for pics,vids, music, etc. not apps the memory the OP and pkcable are referring to is the app memory or what is used to store apps and as ram. do not be scared to download apps some apps do have memory leaks and require some more maintenance but memory really lies in the preference realm how ocd are you and how fast do you need your phone to be at all times. there are a few things you can do to help keep memory optimized while still using the phone.

    first you can download logmaid it clears out your event logs every hour this clears the event logs in the phone and free up extra bits of memory.

    close out of an app when you are done using it this will help keep memory up.

    also clear out your texts and emails every so often dont keep like 500

    also go into options security options and enable memory cleaning and have the icon appear on home screen and manually clean out once a day twice a day or as you see fit.
