THE BLACKBERRY MESSENGER IS A RAM HOGGER

Posted by   on Pinterest

For all the BlackBerry had in getting their Blackberry Messenger ready to compete against the likes of Whatsapp on Android and iOS it stills remains a poorly coded app. After their last update things really took a turn for the worse as i noticed that for my Nova Launcher seemed to redraw itself more regularly on my Galaxy Note 3 which has 3GB of on board RAM. On checking the Application manager i found the culprit which had managed to use over 300MB of  RAM, rebooting my phone seemed to solve the problem but three hours later and a few messages sent it had managed to use 210MB of RAM, which is ridiculous considering that this is just a mere chat app not a graphics intensive game, comparing it to the other chats that i had on my phone like Whatsapp which used about 10MB of RAM and Facebook messenger which used just a little above 24MB.


Please BlackBerry fix your app .

  1. I checked mine after reading this article, on a device running CyanogenMod 4.3.1, BBM is only using 60mb of memory.
