    I run a ton of widgets on my screen and my free memory is always around 35M.

    I'm using ATK to get that number.

    I don't know if there is a better program that will show me a more accurate number but would having a ton of widgets reduce my memory?

    would it be possible to have it cache some of the stuff that is always in the memory onto the storage mem or sd to free up memory? similar to Readyboost on my PC

    Well Launcher2 just FC'd me and I was at 96k, then when I opened everything back up I was back to 35k.

    Is this unusual?

    is there a way to check free mem without installing anything?

    why are people so bent on having free ram? you do realize ram is pointless if nothing is in it right? you actually want your ram to be almost full all the time...

    I'm using ATK and my numbers match your findings. When I kill the apps I do not notice any difference in other running app speeds or my browser download times. I agree w/ Blacknblack no need worry.

    I see some people going nuts with these app killers and trying to optimize ram, why bother? The most I do is back out of an app to the home screen, my battery is fine, runs fast as ever and i'm living a less stressful life not worry about ram and apps running lol

    I don't quite understand the logic in this, but I'm willing to listen to an argument that supports it.

    Anyway, I only look at my free mem (using ATK) when I start to experience lag. When that happens, it's always at or below 35MB. I hit Kill, and it usually jumps to 70MB or more and the lagging stops completely. I'm not sure why, because from what I understand it shouldn't be that way, but alas, it is for me. I chalk it up to beta apps running.
