"This is what we need, advance it, please!"

December 06, 2009  |  By Jak T Rip

 |  Version: iFreeMem 3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Memory management is the one area that I am incontend with on OSX. It is the one reason why I need to reboot my system after some days. iFreeMem addresses this problem. It is not the ideal solution I hope to have in the future, but it's the best I could find to date and it is a good start.

Thank you for the software, I hope you will develop it further!

What I would want to have:
- a continuous mode that keeps the mem clean at all times (as in RamsaverPro on Windows)
- a clever ram optimization routine that decides what to throw out of ram and into VM, or vice versa (as in RamsaverPro on Windows)
- deletion of unused VM files and resetting the next VM file size accordingly
- more user control and transparency as to what is freed and why

Regards

"No problems"

Works fine for me under 10.6. Clears inactive memory by brute force, which may or may not be useful for you, as problems caused by inactive memory is rare, but can happen.

I used iFreeMem for many years successfully but 3.5 is also not working for me under 10.6. Snow Leo. Pity!

"almost useless"

November 22, 2009  |  By oirudleahcim

 |  Version: iFreeMem 3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I could only get this app to run once per bootup. Couldn't tell any difference in speed after it ran. Now, if it zapped the VM swap file, maybe it would be worth the $8. Also, I couldn't get the touted additional features to work. I didn't purchase after the trial expired. I have a dual-1GHz PPC dual-mirror-door Mac, 2GB RAM, OS 10.5.8.
