The Daily App: Android Boost2:30 PM EST Mon. Mar. 26, 2012
If you're a regular reader of this Daily App blog, then of course you've installed and tried all of the apps we've recommend, right? Even if you've installed just a few, there's a chance that you or your customers have seen the performance of Android devices drop over time. That's because each app uses storage and, more importantly, system memory. Even after it quits, some apps still keep a small piece of themselves alive in memory.
Last updated on Mar. 6, the free tool works with Android 2.1 and higher to report running apps and memory usage in real-time, displays which resources they're accessing (including use of wireless communications to send and receive info) and allows tasks to be killed and app installed with a single tap.
Android Boost also monitors battery usage and can help optimize available battery time. It also guards against viruses and other intrusions. Features are easy to find thanks to an intuitive interface with large buttons and controls. An included widget offers one-click toggling of Bluetooth mobile network and WiFi radios.
