EMobiStudio's Software To Boost Smartphone Memory

By freeing up unused memory, the company said its MemoryUp Standard Edition increases performance in quick 20-minute bursts.

Mobile software maker eMobiStudio said the newest version of its software is so efficient that it can actually improve mobile handset app performance.

MemoryUp Standard Edition v2.2 automatically adjusts the refresh rate of mobile RAM by analyzing the J2ME programs that are running, then reclaims or re-allocates the resources they consume, eMobiStudio said Thursday. By reducing the number of times that the mobile OS has to access the unit's hard drive, overall handset performance is improved, the vendor claimed.

MemoryUp users say the effect of the software's performance boost lasts about 20 minutes or more, prompting many to use the 30-minute auto-boost feature so that their mobiles are continuously releasing unused memory.

In this latest new version, a refined optimization algorithm automatically adjusts the mobile RAM refresh rate in order to reduce overall system load. "It can also rescue our customers' mobile devices by fixing unexpected cell phone crashes and fatal memory errors," said eMobiStudio CTO, Daniel Zhang, in a statement.

In addition to its Java virtual machine (JVM) RAM calculation and display, the software provides a warning then auto-recovers RAM at a preset threshold. Advanced boosting features -- which can be triggered on startup, automatically, or manually -- force the system to use large cache, prohibit kernel to disk swapping, and auto-allocate critical threads, among other functions, eMobiStudio said.

Users can buy a registered copy of MemoryUp Standard Edition 2.2 for second and third editions of Symbian S60 ($14), or for the RIM OS for BlackBerry ($15). The Symbian version is a 407-KB download; the RIM version is 417 KB.

The vendor also said users can get the new software for free by working through one of more than 60 affiliate partners who absorb the fee. Both versions are available in English, German, Italian, and Spanish.
