To make their apps run faster, some designers make them store
copies of things in RAM ... Known as cacheing, this makes things
work much faster - until your system starts to run out of memory.
For cacheing to be effective, the amount of space devoted to it
must be carefully managed by the application and the device's
operating system. Some app developers don't put the effort that

slow down over time, but can drag the rest of the system down with
