Provide more memory to Android apps

My Android phone arrived with useless apps that were installed by T-Mobile. Some of them load at start time and needlessly consume processor cycles and memory.

I’ve found that I can free up about 60 megabytes of memory shortly after starting up the phone. I run Task Manager by holding down the phone’s Home button. Next I press the Task manager button, followed by the RAM button at the top of the screen.

Next, I press the Clear memory button at the bottom of the screen. This stops at least ten useless apps and frees at least 50 megabytes of memory.

On my Android Gingerbread phone, these extra megabytes of available memory make the difference between long YouTube videos crashing the phone and streaming to completion. YMMV.
