MemoryFreer does just what it says - free up memory, especially the inactive memory that occupies the precious RAM on your computer. It greatly improves the performance of your memory-hungry applications such as Photoshop, Safari/Firefox, Office, iWork, Parallel/VMware, etc.

Just click "Free Memory" button and watch the magic work! In some occasion you may need to run it a few times to shrink inactive memory to minimal.

MemoryFreer can also serve as a memory usage monitor, with real-time usage shown as a pie chart on menubar.

Review by Colo Wizard

The best app you never knew you needed - I agree with those who say that you should not need this app but for whatever reason my mac does not do a good job of freeing up memory that is no longer used and as a result it slows down to a crawl. Now that I have this app I can quckly remedy the problem and get back to work without having to close every application and restarting. Now that I have been using the app for about year the only feature I wish it had was automatically freeing memory at a specific time, for me I would have it run at 4:00 in the morning before I started using the machine for the day, that way I would always start the day with memory optimized. Other reviewers have stated that OSX should do this automatically but it is my experience (and from the reviews the experience of many others) that my machine will slow to a crawl or even become non-responsive and OSX still does not free unused memory. This is a must have app especially for those with limited memory, but even thouse of us who have lots of memory will in my experience eventually run out (I had 12Meg and just upgraded to 16Meg), it just takes a little longer for the problem to surface.

Sluggish after Mountain Lion Update - I'm dropping my rating from five to two stars after upgrading to Mountain Lion. The program now takes about three times as long to clear inactive memory. On Lion it would also clear inactive memory down to tens of MB. Now it barely clears below 1G. If you run multiple cleanings it MAY drop it down to about 800MB, but not much lower. Drastically needs an update for Mountain Lion. I would avoid until an update is posted. I have contacted MemoryFreer support and will update this review when I hear from them.

Review by AJ Mexico

Got it for the Memory Usage Display - I wanted this more as a display of how much memory was available than as a method of reclaming it. Reclamation of inactive memory is supposed to be automatic. I guess this app could be helping out some applications that do memory management poorly. There are certainly enough of those. This does a great job of showing me how tight memory is getting in various situations. It puts a little Venn diagram in the menu bar. If you click on that, you see the free/wired/active/inactive numbers. This might be particularly useful for older Macs which just won't take any additional RAM.

Review by GrassValleyGal

Very helpful, glad I got it - I'm running Parallels Desktop with Windows XP on my iMac running Mountain Lion (with 8MG memory), because I didn't want to give up my PC-based Mailwasher program and Quicken financial applications. Everything was fine until I bought and installed Kapersky anti-virus, which was recommended by Apple. Suddenly, the spinning rainbow wheel of death was my constant companion. Thank goodness I found this app. It's fascinating to watch the memory change as things open or close, and it's annoying to have to wait a minute while memory is freed up, but that's so much better than sitting while the rainbow wheels comes and goes when you're trying to do something. It's fantastic to see when you're in trouble, and you can fix it before the spinning rainbow wheels start. I'm purchasing an additional 8Mg of memory to give me a long-term solution, but am still very happy to have this app and will continue to use it even after adding additional memory. Does what it says, well worth it.

Review by kikkilu

always test before i review & this is GOOD! - i tested memory clean and memoryFreer extensively, for at least 4 months, before i chose which i wanted. i love this applicaiton over memory clean because it, in and of itself, is not its own memory hog, i.e., although memory clean does the same sort of cleanout, removing temporary files and cleaning as much cache as possible, memoryFreer cleans more. now how did i come to that conclusion? if you test memory clean (which i like too), you will determine that you must click on the clean memory bar numerous times before you get the max clean. it’s sort of like doing dishes one time or ten. memoryFreer cleans more faster. whenever i used either tool, i ran it more than once to see what gain i’d get. when i got to getting the most, i’d shut one program, then open up the other one, which was memory clean (for the past 30 days out of 4 months of the total testing time i allotted). i found it quite strange that memory cleaner, opened immediately after i had cleaned all i possibly could with this app had A LOT to clean! huh, i thought. why? how could it be that one RAM cleaner found more RAM to clean (? just where, after cleaning, did memory clean find so many other temprorary files to clean and waste my time?) when it said was all was clean? that does not make sense. what’s probably the best out of the two programs is this memory freer’s interface, a pie chart. there is more text in memory clean, although to me, that doesn’t matter. it could matter to you. the hardest part about double, triple, quadruple and more cleaning with memory clean was that after you did the first two, the third and fourth would lag a long time at around 98% clean, so i do not understand what else, and where else, it found memory to clean.i want a do-it-on-the-fly cleaner that wham, bam! cleans out unneccessary files in an instant. i had to reclean too many times in one sitting, in one occurrance, using memory clean. you choose between the two yourself when they are offered free. however, after those long months testing, i will stay with this lovely graphic MemoryFreer. thank you, developers, for such a good product.

As advertised - This app says it frees up your memory that's occupied by a bunch of nothing, and that's exactly what it does. Haven't restarted Chrome in 7 months? Run this app twice. Haven't restarted your computer at all in weeks? Run this app. It's almost as good as a full system restart and 15x faster.
