Application memory is full
07-09-09 02:29 PM
- Hi, my Storm has no free space in the application memory.
The device memory lists 879MB total/862MB free. The media card 7.3GB total/7.3GB free. I would like to add some more applications.
1. Can I move something to the device media or the memory card?
2. How can I find out the memory used by the existing apps?
Thanks.07-09-09 12:24 AM

and as mat said, u cannot install to mem card07-09-09 12:28 AM
- Yeah viigo is a known memory hog and takes anywhere between 2-6 mb of app memory depending on how many feeds you have. I recommend porting over to google reader and just downloading a shortcut. Works just as well and saves lot of memory

- You can list apps via Options >> Adavnced Options >> Applications, although it will include stock apps and apps that are vital to the phone (but you should be able to recognize the third party apps you've installed), but not their individual memory usage -- RIM doesn't provide a way to access that information. But most of the BlackBerry apps that I've seen don't really differ that much in size - almost always somewhere in the 700KB to 1.5MB range. If you're only booting up with 16MB, then more likely than anything you've just flat out got too many apps. It probably won't matter much which ones you delete, since they're all in the same size range, as long as you get the ones that are known memory leakers, but definitely delete some.07-09-09 04:25 AM
Yet another reason why RIM shouldn't have hosed us with only 128MB of app/OS memory. What were they thinking?07-09-09 09:29 AM
- Welcome to the CRAP that is the RIM OS.
You have the potential to put in a 32 GB SD card and use 0 GB for applications. Really awesome isn't it?
Guess what? The new Tiger Woods Golf for the iPhone takes up 150 MB of memory. You would have no chance of installing that on your storm. The typical application for the Storm takes up a whopping 100 KB yee hawwww.
Oh well. Life goes on in the java based old world OS that we are running.
This is something that RIM is going to have to address or the ODIN will fail horribly!07-09-09 09:56 AM

- I have worked with this issue since last November's release of the Storm...It seems that the Storm doesn't do well with App. memory if you have too many apps..As well, many apps. seem to cause memory to leak more than others. I only have on my Storm what I truly use on a frequent basis..I try apps to see how they will work and look on the phone, but if I don't use them, I take them off of the phone. As well, the phone will work more efficiently if you place apps in folders instead of lettling the icons exist out of a folder. Other than Meterberry, all of my apps are in folders...and it really did make a difference in available memory. As well, clear the cache in the browser frequently, clear the call log, and clear the event log frequently...and I do a battery pull at the begining of each day..At least for my Storm...the above mentioned actions have helped big time.07-09-09 12:15 PM
- As well, if you have lots of apps and have followed "trimming" them away and using folders...you can get a program that willl help recover memory..The Meterberry App. can help with that and, you can set the icon to show how much app. memory is left as well as many other options. You can clear your event log and also reset the phone from Meterberry. That way you don't have to physically pull the battery each time you want to reset. I know you have probably seen or read this info. before, but just thought in the event you have not seen it before, you have now.07-09-09 12:33 PM

- I agree with the others in saying that Viigo is a memory hog...at the present time, it don't think it plays well with the Storm. Also, I have noticed that both Weatherberry and WeatherBug seemed to really affect the memory on my phone. If you need the weather, you can bookmark a weather site in your browser. Also, Facebook, most of the Twitter apps, and My Space will really affect the memory if they are allowed to run continuously..That being said, if you use them, then shut them completely down (including the weather programs if possible), the affect on memory useage is minimal. At least thats what I have found for my Storm.07-09-09 01:14 PM
