What do you have to do in case of detecting low memory?

The application has showing the following message

Personal Closet has not guilt of this, but do not worry, here the solution.

Many android devices, especially Android mobiles (HTC Wildfire, HTC Wildfire S, Samsung Galaxy Ace, HTC Salsa, HTC Desire, etc) may have the problem of low memory.

Most of these devices has the internal memory from 180 MB to 512 MB. In an Android device out of the available memory around 40 MB is already eaten by the Android OS, Application related services, Applications which comes pre-installed with your device. It is not that Android OS takes lot of space, but the apps and the related data takes more space.

There are few easy and efficient ways to clear up the internal memory.

Go to Settings --> Manage Applications and follow the below steps

  • Remove Unnecessary  Applications 

Go through the applications one by one and decide whether you can live without that app. If yes, you can uninstall it. There might be few application which you have installed and forgot about it. This way you can free up some space for new apps.

  • Clear Cache

Few applications like Facebook, Gmail creates lot of cache which eats considerable amount of memory. You can delete this cache regularly (approx. once in a two months) to free up some space. To delete the cache.

Go to Settings --> Manage Application --> Select your application --> Press "Clear Cache"

  • Move the Applications to SD Card

Check for the applications which are downloaded by you. In application details if you see the button "Move to SD Card" then you can click on it to move it to SD Card. The application will be moved to SD Card and considerable space will be freed up on your internal memory. To move to SD-Card.

Go to Settings --> Manage Application --> Select your application --> Press "Move to SD Card "

There are few applications which you cannot move to SD Card. In that case the "Move to SD Card" option will be disabled. e.g Google Maps, Gmail, Facebook , Yahoo Messenger etc.

We would not recommend moving the pre-installed applications (Applications which comes with your device when you purchased it) to SD card.

  • Clear Data (Be careful with this option)

This feature is bit risky, and should be used for selected applications. Especially, we do not recommend you to use it for Personal Closet. Clear up the data is like a Factory Reset for the Application. You may loose High Scores, Player Names and other settings for your games. You may have to login again in your applications when you clear the data. In fact, the operating system warns you that you loose user settings, files, accounts when you clear the data.

But few applications like Facebook builds up lot of data. We don't mind deleting this data. All I have to do is, login again in my facebook app. But it frees up around 10 MB of data. To clear data (Be careful with this option again)

Go to Settings --> Manage Application --> Select your application --> Press "Clear Data"
