    App world 6mb?

    Ok...I am confused. I downloaded the latest update to BB App World. It froze up my phone.

    I uninstalled BB App World thinking I would just try a re-install. When I rebooted after deleting app world, I had 6mb more memory than before.

    App World says it is only 835 KB... what is up with the 6mb it was taking up?

    As you use apps and generally use your phone... the memory decreases, so when you deleted the app world your phone just recovered whatever mem it used up plus the 835kb of the app world.

    It may not be just app world, you probably just free'd up some memory you lost thru other apps when you rebooted.

    Regular battery pulls my friend. Frees up that memory that disappears to who knows where.

    No way...sorry. I do a reboot or battery pull at least 1x a day. I know what the free mem is after a fresh reboot. Before I deleted app world it was pretty much the exact same # every time I did a reboot. Now it is almost 6mb more.

    Maybe when app world froze it was in the middle of a process that never stopped, hence eating up 6 mb trying to boot the app...

    Just brainstorming here, I seriously doubt App World (the app itself) is taking up more than a mb or 2.

    That could be a possibilty if the 6mb had only disappeared recently. My free mem has been the same for months now. The 6mb cam back post app world delete.

    Reinstall and see what you use up.
