Hmmm, good thing you’re not the developer or associated with him/her, because posting 2 laudatory comments about this app (the only comments you’ve made at MacUpdate, and both done within 24 hours of this version’s release) without making it clear who you are would be unethical and just plain dickheaded.

If you work with photoshop, lightroom, music editing, video editing, or just want control over the speed at which you do things, invest a dollar and get this app. iMemoryCleaner is underwhelming at first glance; the layout is very straightforward and and the icon is less showy than other apps that have half the power. But iMemoryCleaner definitely packs a punch. It fits seamlessly into my workflow; if my mac starts getting laggy during photo editing, 1 click on the menu icon and things are back to where they should be. In my opinion, this app is essential.

The version 1.1.0 does the job. The inactive memory is cleaned. No need to have developers tools installed any more...

If Developer tools are installed, just go to a Terminal window and type purge. It will purge all inactive memory. Cost: FREE. There are freeware wrappers for purge too.

The man page for purge indicates that it is a disk cache flusher. Is that what this program is claiming to do also, I wonder. What are we referencing when we say "inactive memory"? If it is disk cache then purge would to the trick.

Try atmonitor, it has a purge memory option when you right click the memory icon in the menubar. It works on my macbook.

Well... It doesn't work as expected... I even would just say that it doesn't work... Purge command in terminal is much more efficient.

iMemoryCleaner provides your Mac the freshness of a reboot by giving you the ability to clean the inactive memory on its RAM with a single click. You can also monitor individual apps' memory usage easily and terminate them from a process list sorted according to their memory usage. iMemoryCleaner is significantly lighter on system resources compared to others when monitoring.

When and why you should clear inactive memory:

Inactive memory is a good thing that increases performance when apps need to re-use sections from memory. Like say when you relaunch an app you recently quit, in which case the app launches quicker than normal thanks to the inactive memory. But when most of your memory gets cluttered by inactive memory, even though there is free memory available, you'll see swap files kicking in (This is in cases where an app requests amounts of memory that exceeds the amount of free memory and includes a significant portion of the inactive memory). This slows the performance of your machine along with the fact that giving a portion of inactive memory instead of the free memory to an app is slower. If you are experiencing these issues, which appear mostly after running your machine without a restart for a while, you may consider cleaning the inactive memory to solve any performance issues you are having.

Features:
  • Cleans inactive memory.
  • Light on system resources while monitoring.
  • Immediately halts monitoring when its window is not selected.
  • Minimalistic and easy to use interface.
Please take note that while cleaning the inactive memory, your system may not respond for a few seconds. Please be patient as this is an expected behavior.
