At DroidCon Berlin yesterday, our own Chris Kühl delivered his talk Memory Tuning Android for Low-RAM devices. The content of the talk was actually very similar to the talk he and Iago Lopez gave earlier in the year at FOSDEM, where he assured audiences that his notes would be available Real Soon.
Now that another audience has had the pleasure of hearing his talk, it seems as good a time as any to make Chris’s notes available. On his Github account, readers can find a Gist (a kind of pastebin service) containing his Android Memory Management Notes.
Many of the notes were made before the release of KitKat. With this release, Google improved the documentation regarding running on Low-RAM devices immensely. Here are a couple links to the relevant pages:
To our knowledge, there was no video of the DroidCon talk, but you can find a video of FOSDEM talk here “Android on Low-RAM devices talk at FOSDEM 2014.”.
