S4BB MemoryBooster

One of the most popular apps for the BlackBerry, this Ram optimiser certainly does make a difference. After running this swiftly executed routine, there was a significant improvement in speed when starting applications. They would just open and close more smoothly compared to the pauses and occasional freezes I would experience. MemoryBooster doesn’t tinker with any SD card or internal storage areas, but focuses on the memory management of the BlackBerry’s Java Virtual Machine – targeting ‘lost’ memory that can be made available to applications so they run more effectively. MemoryBooster even performs background tasks, so you don’t need to routinely apply it. If your BlackBerry has lost some of its spriteliness, then this app is well worth a blast.
