Clean up memory

Memory Cleaner allows you to clean up your RAM memory, which in reality is free, however, the system shows it as occupied by apps. Just check the indicator periodically. If the amount of used memory reaches its peak point, click “Cleanup”. After the cleaning process you will see the amount of cleared memory in the window and the time of the last cleanup.
