Smart RAM Booster
The most beautiful part of this app is a small, configurable widget that places on top of any app and one-click to RAM boost.
Most of Android devices bundle with limited memory. Android task manager will selectively kill low priority tasks in order to
reserve memory to higher priority task. That’s not always run at an appropriate time, causing low responsive apps, lagging,
especially when you launch a new app after heavily browsing web pages. It causes a worse experience.

RAM Booster comes with auto-boost in 4 levels: aggressive, strong, medium, gentle.

☆ Aggressive: kill most of low priority apps
☆ Strong: Kill apps that is low priority as well as consume lightly below an “average”
☆ Medium: kill apps that consumes memory above an “average”
☆ Gentle: kill only apps that uses considerable memory

There are 5 ways to boost
☆ Auto-boost: boost automatically under RAM available & timing conditions
☆ Overlay widget – Enable RAM Booster overlay widget (on by default), adjust widget’s position, and tap on widget to boost anytime you want
☆ Home screen widget – one tap to boost (long-press your home screen>Widget to add RAM Booster widget)
☆ Notification bar – one tap to boost (toggle notification bar visibility in app’s setting)
☆ Boost Now – tap this button from app’s main screen

Fast cache cleaner
☆ 1-click to clean cache
☆ Show detail internal cache and external cache
☆ Select apps that use most cache

Quick SD Card cleaner
☆ Show SD card partition
☆ Scan for junk folder, big files, orphaned files
☆ Nice photo cleaner, music cleaner
☆ Notify for low storage usage

Advanced application manager
☆ Easily backup, uninstall unused apps
☆ App2SD – recommend apps to move to sd card
☆ Hibernate rarely used apps to save battery
☆ Disable system apps
☆ Scan auto-start apps
☆ Manage backup (.apk) files

The information from Google play pretty much summarizes the functions of the app. I must say this app is indeed useful. My favorite is the cache cleaner and the booster. The booster actually closes applications that are not needed (at the moment) to increase free RAM and thus speed up your smartphone. The app gives you the exact (amount?) RAM that can be released once you boost the device.

The storage manager allows monitoring of internal and external storage space. The application manager gives you a lot of options: backup and install, install apps to your SD, hibernation, app disabling, autostart, install app from backup and app installation.

The privacy advisor allows scanning of apps to check for risks of privacy breach (classified as high risk or normal). High risk apps are those that collects our personal data, location, and other information.

Looking at the app’s setSmartbooster10tings, it allows you to set the boost level: aggressive, strong, medium and gentle. The good thing is you can whitelist an app, so it gets excluded during boosts. You can also choose to boost when your screen turns off and also set the threshold (ex. at 100 MB RAM) for auto-boosting.

You can also activate a floating widget so you won’t need to open the app directly. Just tap the widget and your device is quickly boosted.

I have been using this app for a long time now and haven’t thought of changing to another app. We will see if a better app comes along, but for the meantime this is a worth a try. 🙂
