iPhone App: Core Monitor (Free) – Clear iPhone memory (RAM)

Core Monitor (Free) AppStore

If you have an older generation iPhone, such as iPhone 3G or 3GS. You may notice, after 2-3 years of usage, that the OS runs sluggish and may even crash. Its well known that improvements and upgrades to the OS may allocate more memory, and having a nice little multitasking tool is nice. But its going to eat up memory fast.

Core Monitor (Free) is a nice little application for iPhone that lets you visualize current memory usage. As well as monitor:

  • Remaining Battery (Roughly)
  • Disk Usage
  • CPU Load
  • Running Processes
  • Device Information (Slightly buggy in my experience)

Safari 5 High Memory Usage Fixed?

I noticed something the other day about Safari 5, There apparently is a new update available! 5.0.1 to be exact. And the best part isSafari Logo that it seems that this update has fixed the high memory usage, hurray!! ┬áSo if you are having trouble with high memory usage in Safari 5, just update it! I’m not making any promises though, this is what I have experienced, your result might be different. Anyway, it’s nice to see that my favorite browser on Mac is finally working as it should again.

Safari 5 High Memory Usage

Hello World!
Safari Logo

As you probably know, the new Safari 5 has been released, and of course you have upgraded like i have. However I have noticed something really strange about that wasn’t in Safari 4 or 3, It can sometimes hang up, for quite a while. So I decided to check the Macintosh process manager to see if it was hoging the CPU, that’s what i thought, but no, IT HAD TAKEN UP FREAKIN’ 2.5 GB OF MEMORY!!

I really hope Apple will fix this bug or whatever it’s called, cause i really like Safari, it’s the only Mac web browser that I know of that runs 64-bit and it’s really fast to, fast browsing, fast booting.
