Version 2.1.5.1

  • All features/fixes from the betas.  I’ll relist them below.
  • Added Mem Usage for each app in List view.  This is the memory footprint of the app so you won’t see the same amount of memory freed up if you kill apps.  In fact if it’s an empty application then you will actually see no change in available memory.  But it will give you an idea of how much memory the app could take up if it was running.
  • In List view there is the option to Sort by Name and Sort by Mem Usage.  Name is sorted by ascending order and Mem Usage is sorted by descending order.
  • Hide Whitelist from menu if Auto Clean Up is not selected.
  • Tidied up some rogue pop up messages.
  • Updated ad network.  Nobody likes ads but it is a necessary evil and it helps provide me with some real world benefits.  And I appreciate every click.

Version 2.1.3

  • Fixed a few bugs
  • Made some changes to improve clean up and reduce strain on the system’s resources.

Version 2.1.3 Beta

  • You can get 2.1.3 Beta here.
  • Default whitelist.  This will be loaded the first time you install the beta.  I made a guess to the common things that people would want to keep a live.  You can remove the ones you don’t need.
  • Preference option to stop the pop up messages that are displayed when a clean up is runned.
  • Fixed a FC that was happening on the Process Details page.

Version 2.1.1

  • Minor bug fix.

Version 2.1

  • This is the first public release of the new AMM and now it works with unrooted phones!  For rooted phones you can still use the unrooted-mode called “Auto Clean Up” in the Preference.  There is a good reason why you would want to do this.
  • Basic mode.  This makes using AMM as simple as possible.  Just one slider to chose which profile you want to use and that’s it.
  • Whitelist.  This is only available if you use the unrooted aka Auto Clean Up mode.  To add a app to whitelist just select a app from any of the Running Processes list and select “Add to Whitelist” from the options.  To view view the whitelist just select Whitelist from the meu.  You can also remove apps from the whitelist from the whitelist screen.
  • Auto Clean Up.  This is what manages the memory for unrooted phones.  When you enable the Auto Clean Up mode you will also be able to select how often you want the clean up to happen with the Clean Up Interval option in Preferences.
  • Expert mode.  This is just the old interface.  You can choose to use the basic mode or expert mode from the Preference by selecting/unselecting the “Use Expert Mode” option.
  • Removed the options to change priority and keep alive for rooted phones.   This has never worked properly.  I’ve decided to remove it to reduce confusion.

Version 2.0.4 Beta

  • You can get the AMM beta here.  If this release goes well then it will be the last beta before public release.
  • Fixed a lot of non-root issues.
  • Fix a few existing bugs

Version 2.0 Beta

  • You can get the AMM 2.0 BETA here.
  • AMM can now doesn’t require root access anymore!  So now you can use AMM on any phone.  You can still the root access mode if you like.  This can be changed in Preference > Auto clean up.
  • If you use the non-root mode then you can set how often you want AMM to try to free up available memory.
  • Ability to add apps to a whitelist.  Note: This is only available in the non-root mode.
  • You can see all the apps you have added in the Whiltelist screen.  Access this screen from the Menu.
  • Remove apps from the whiltelist.  This is done by selecting a app from the Whitelist screen and then choosing “Remove from whitelist”.
  • Service list now shows the Running Services screen.  After some investigation I’ve learned that getting a correct list of running services is not simple and it’s just better to use the one that comes with Android.
  • Removed ability to change the priority of apps.  This feature never worked correctly and I’ve gotten a few negative feedback/complaints about it.  So I’m removing it to reduce confusion.

Version 1.8.3.1

  • Added same actions to the List view so now you can kill, view process details etc.

Version 1.8.2

  • Bug fixes
  • Support for Android 2.2

Version 1.8.1

  • Added List view of apps.
  • Improved loading time of all Running Processes view.  The first load will take a while (but still faster than before) but subsequent loads will be near instant.

Version 1.7.1.1

  • Couple of bug fixes
  • Update Chinese translation provided by http://goapk.com .  Almost all text in the app has been translated.

Version 1.7

  • Added Services page.  This shows all running services in their OOM groupings.
  • Reworked Help.  This should make the flow of the help pages much better.  No need to go back from page 9 to 1 just to get back to the home screen.  Just a press of the back button will do now.
  • Root checking.  Added this to check if the phone has root access.  This saves people the confusion.
  • Root guide.  In the event that a downloader’s phone doesn’t have root access I’ve also provided a link to a page that I’ve made that is a compilation of rooting guides from the xda-developer and Modaco forum.  Thanks for those guys for providing a valuable service for the Android community.
  • Service is shut down once the settings are applied.  Bad implementation on my part to keep the service running when it is no longer needed.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.

Version 1.6

  • Added OMM Grouping

Version 1.5

  • Adding a comprehensive (I hope) 10 page help.

Version 1.4.3

  • Fix a bug causing FC.
  • Show available memory.
  • Icons in the Running Processes list are now all the same size.
  • Show icon and app name in Process Details page.
  • Some basic animation in some of the pages.

Version 1.4.1

  • Set all pages to always to be in portrait view to stop it from crashing during rotation.

Version 1.4

  • Running Processes now shows the proper name of the application/process and icon if available.  The grouping header also shows the number of apps/processes in each group.
  • When loading and refreshing the running processes there is also a loader so people don’t think AMM has crashed.
  • Updated more text to Chinese.
  • Released Premium version in the Market.

Version 1.3.2

  • Fixed a bug that crashed the app when users tried to change the priority of a process.
  • Added change log to the About page.
  • Updated localization.

Version 1.3

  • Updated Running Processes page.  This is where you will be to access all the new functionality listed below.
  • Ability to kill unwanted process.  Select the process that you want to kill and then select “Kill” from the options.
  • Ability to keep  alive process.  Select the process that you want to keep alive and then select “Keep Alive” from the options.
  • Raise or lower out of memory priority for a process so you can control which processes will get shut down first when memory is low or at a threshold.  Select the process that you want to change and then select to increase or decrease the priority from the options.
  • Display more details about each process.  Select the process and then select “Process Details” from the options.
  • Added ad support.  This is your chance to support my work.

Version 1.2.1.1

  • Fixed crash for first time users that tried going to the Advanced screen before applying any settings.

Version 1.2.1

  • Advanced mode.  Access this through the menu.  This will allow users to enter the exact value that they want.
  • Slider moves in 5MB steps.  This was suggested to make it easier for users.
  • Usage data collection turned on by default.  After the initial trial this provided me with a lot of good information without any complaints so I have decided to turn this on by default.  You can still turn it off from the Preference page.

Version 1.2

  • AMM will apply the Mild profile when it starts up for a new user.  The intention is to show the user what AMM can do immediately.
  • Better exception handling.  If AMM crashes then the next time AMM is started the user will get shown an email with details of the error that they can send to me.  This feature is turned on by default but you can turn it off in the Preference.
  • Collection of anonymous usage data.  This is turned off by default.  But one of the data this will collect is what settings you are using.  The data is very useful for me so please turn it on.
  • Added the Runnng Pricessew page.  This shows the list of running processes and which category they are in.  This interface will be improved in future releases but I wanted to put this to help users understand why certain apps never seem to get shut down.
  • Reduced code base.

Version 1.1.1

  • Added support for simplified and traditional chinese as well as spanish.

Version 1.1

  • Main functionality kept in a service rather than the main activity.
  • Settings applied to on reboot.

Version 1.0.4

  • UI redesign. Select a preset or set the sliders and press Apply.
  • Save settings after reboot but no auto apply so you still need to at least start the app once.

Version 1.0.3

  • Added Help and About page in the Menu.
  • MB updates when moving slidebar to make it easier when making custom setting.

Version 1.0.1

  • Custom setting.
  • Added icon.
