Meterberry Meterberry

So I was "convinced" to use a BlackBerry Storm for a while. Skeptical at first - I'm slowly adjusting. As I was loading up as many apps as I could find, I stumbled across Meterberry. It immediately piqued my interest and I added it to my list of installs. Once I was fully operational I fired it up and I must say I was very impressed with all the information it provided. Now we all now that battery life slowly decreases during use, and our device memory tends to slowly "leak" throughout the day. The cool thing about Meterberry is it gives you logs of exactly how much. It displays your battery level, temperature, voltage and even the average discharge rate. You can also see all your memory specifications - application free and a + or - change since startup. I love checking out the memory log to see at what points my memory is dripping out the most. It was also really cool to see that at points it actually went up! Another great feature is the ability to change the homescreen icon to a battery level or temperature meter, memory icon or uptime indicator. You can also choose to reboot your device from inside the application. If you're a Storm user and want to get the most from your device, definitely check out Meterberry. It's available for only $2.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com.

(warning - grammar nerd alert)

Not to be a hater, just a helper. Sorry.

Correct term is 'piqued', not peaked. From an online dictionary:

pique:   /pik/
–verb (used with object) 1. to affect with sharp irritation and resentment, esp. by some wound to pride: She was greatly piqued when they refused her invitation.
2. to wound (the pride, vanity, etc.).
3. to excite (interest, curiosity, etc.): Her curiosity was piqued by the gossip.
4. to arouse an emotion or provoke to action: to pique someone to answer a challenge.
5. Archaic. to pride (oneself) (usually fol. by on or upon).

Haha noted. Thanks for the heads up ;)

It's obvious what he meant. Why was there a need to correct the spelling????....

Sign me up. Looks like a great way to see what is causing my memory to leak. Great job! Thanks.

how do you startup with 50 mb free? I usually start up with like 35 mb free...

MadCowStorm

Go to Options... Advanced Options... Applications and delete useless things.

Don't have Visual Voice Mail? Delete it.
Lots of themes you never use? Delete them.

Delete useless applications, and you'll notice performance and memory differences. Having a clean and working phone is worth more to me than some sound board app.

Maybe your memory was running out because the program writes a log to your memory? Just saying.

Hi guys, I'm the MeterBerry developer. If anyone has any questions, please e-mail me at help@meterberry.com.

That is an actual screenshot from my phone.

To answer your question, I regularly start with around 50 MB of free application memory. I've removed everything I don't use, including things like extra languages through Desktop Manager.

Also, the logs are a fixed size. Old entries are thrown away. Even if the logs are full they only take up a few KB of space.

swamp_water

ah good call. Thanks for the updated info.

Thanks for the grammar lesson. I never knew that one.

On topic. I've been running meterberry since release and must say it is a handy little app.

Hosehead

I would love to track my memory on my Bold...

BlackPearl890

piper975

How about a 7 day trial?

metall8cat

This would be great. Kinda wondered what has been eating my memory up all the time

I must say this little app is the best thing in my life (in terms of mobile technology, lol)...I find myself looking through logs to see what my batt % is at now, vs. what it was yesterday at same time, 2 days ago at same time...etc. It allows me to monitor my avail mem so when I open and close some apps, i can monitor my memory to see what is leaking, or what programs take a lot of space....it's really great. I have an alert when my avail. mem. is below 15%, and I always look at my batt level and compare it to the last few days to see if i'm getting improvements, based on what I use the phone for, or what apps i'm running. Also, I love the fact that you can monitor your BOOTUP batt loss...talk about a loss of power! 18%, 15%, 17%, are normal when you quick pull your phone....wow, thats a lot of batt loss for 1 reset.

smousse

Either my BB works or if it stops working I simply free space by deleting other apps that I don't use, and I do a battery pull. Can't see the value in this app.
