Description

Boost&Memory increases your Mac performance by cleaning cached RAM memory.

The application monitors the RAM usage on your computer and lets you free up the memory is not used with one click.

With Boost&Memory you can manage memory usage from your menu bar using animated status icon that allows you to monitor the percentage of memory usage, as well as run memory cleaning.

Detailed information is displayed in the ”Information” window:
• System - memory used by the system
• User – memory used by applications and processes run by the user
• Free – Free memory

Memory usage can be viewed through the progress bar

Memory Freeing – activates the memory freeing function.
Memory Freeing also allows you to see the date and size of your latest memory cleaning.
The Automatic mode allows you to clear your inactive RAM automatically. You can set the time period and the percentage of memory usage for cleaning.

Boost&Memory cleans RAM caches, making memory reallocations for new apps faster.

It works as advertised

This is a nice litle utility for freeing up memory, having it in the menu bar is much easier than opening the maintenance program I have that has a similar feature.

not working

It is not working at all.
I want my money back.
It worked the first day and after that never

Simple and helpful, but could use 10.10 clarification

There are several ways to manage and free up memory. Depending on your reasons for wanting to free up memory some ways are better than others. Using the Terminal along with Activity Monitor is, of course, the power user way (actually every OS X user should understand how to use the Terminal to some degree). Boost&Memory is a nice utility for freeing up RAM and I’ve been using it for several years. It’s also very useful for keeping an eye on your memory usage. The simple but effective menu bar icon shows your total RAM usage. If you find yourself needing to make room (you should know why you want to do this and not just clear out memory any and all times; the OS is managing it for you), Boost&Memory allows you to take a quick glance at the menu bar (which means it’s there in any window or space), and then click “Free up memory”. That’s it!. Simple and effective.

It still works with 10.10 Yosemite, but maybe not perfectly. It’s now much quicker to use the Terminal, but I don’t know exactly what procedure Boost&Memory uses for purging memory, so it’s hard to tell if it’s still 100% compatible with 10.10. In 10.10 it’s much slower than it was in previous versions of OS X. Perhaps it has to do with the need for root permissions in 10.10. Regardless, the developer should either release a statement about this, or release an update. Still, I keep it installed as a memory meter. Yes, there are other ways to monitor your memory, but I like the simplicity of Boost&Memory.
