    Hi All,
    If you are trying to improve your RAM with those apps that say that help, if you remove your SD card, your stuck with whatever is on your phone, right? Thanks. :p

    You're talking about two different things. RAM- Random Access Memory is what programs use to function, SDCard is physical disk space where programs/pics/vids, etc are saved to.

    Android doesn't require or need one of the apps to manage memory.

    I agree with Mustang, you should not need an app to "manage" your RAM. Android does a pretty good job of that all by itself. Apps that claim to help do that may actually slow the phone down and drain lots of battery. Also, an SD Card should have no impact on RAM.

    I know exactly what are you talking about..that's called "partition the sd card"..yes I did that to my phone..so apparently you cannot remove your sd without unmount the sd first..or another option is to remove the link partition first..then you are good to go..let me know.

    No, that's not what is being discussed.

    @Mustang02 I believe they are discussing creating a swap partition on the SDCard to improve the performance of the device. Kinda old school now!

    The OP is talking about an app that improves RAM.

    Yes, there is an app to re-partition your SDCard this way

    Requires root. We're sidestepping the OP.

    1) We aren't friends.
    2)I am not lost. I have over twenty five years in the industry. What do you have, google? 3)Without root, the OP can't do what you're suggesting. Send us a program that can do it without root.
