I’m trying to optimize and lower memory footprint of an android app, and increase performance by doing that. If you want to see what’s been using up your memory you can use Eclipse MAT – Memory Analyzer Tool. You can plug it in to your Eclipse or use it as a standalone app, it’s easy to use but also have a lot of advanced options. I’ll talk about the tool itself some other time, today I’ll present a case study in which I’ve used it.
