If you’re a heavy Mac app user who enjoys video editing, photo compositing, and everything else, then you may want to take a look at Super Memory Cleaner. In short, the app is designed to free up parts of your Mac’s memory in an effort to speed things up for you while you work.
The app’s user interface can be accessed via the menubar, revealed using a drop-down graphic that is quite similar to your car’s gasometer. While the access point on the menubar itself will tell you how many GBs of RAM are currently free, the graphic display provides more of a visual representation. This is both a great analogy and a great visual aid that allows the user to know exactly what is going on with their machine.
To clean up your memory, all you have to do is click the broom icon which is located right in the middle of the gasometer. Simple enough. While the makers do not exactly reveal the method to their madness, the idea is that the app searches for unused memory and frees it for you. Whenever you use RAM-hungry applications, precious bits of memory get stored away like Rapunzel at the top of a Binary Tower.
Users can set Super Memory Cleaner to run at startup or to autoclean. Generally speaking, it’s an easy-to-use app, and it’s worth giving a shot.
