CleanRAM Just Updated to 2.3
Quite possibly one of the best apps available today to keep your device running smoothly just got updated. XDA member ronenpg just released an update to his famous cleanRAM app for Windows Mobile. In case you are not familiar with it, the app is used to reclaim program memory from apps running in the background that either do not need to be running or that simply doesn’t close completely upon exit. A nice side effect of this app, is that if there are non responding programs, this app will close them and save you from having to do a hard reset, which is a nice perk if you have devices like the HD2 where the reset button is under the battery cover.
The new update includes a few bug fixes as well as compatibility improvements with other UIs such as Wisbar Advanced Desktop. Try it for yourself and see how you like it.
- Add language strings: “Show Black Curtain”, “WisBar Advance Desktop” and
“Infinity” (see post #3)
- cleanRAM is now supporting “WisBar Advance Desktop” and “Ageye Infinity”
- Add “Show Black Curtain” option to settings menu – this option allows you to
put a black curtain while cleaning.
- Fixed the freezing issue while GUI cleaning. now cleanRAM is more stable!
You can find more information in the application thread.

But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
