Systerac Memory Booster makes your phone fast and smooth again with just one finger touch! Systerac Memory Booster is a powerful memory boosting tool designed for Android device phones and tablets. Systerac Memory Booster reclaims lost memory for your programs by defragmenting your smartphone’s memory and recovering memory leaks from poorly behaved applications.
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Pros & Cons:
- Does not require root access.
- Doesn’t close all open apps.
- Any apps it does close reopen immediately.
Systerac Memory Booster claims to speed your phone up by clearing up internal memory. I tried this app several times under several different circumstances, and I have to be honest, I never really saw any difference. The app gives you a list of all open apps, both system and user, and gives you buttons to close them. I never had any luck closing any apps that way – I could only get the app to do anything by using the Close All option, but then, if I even just went back to the home screen and then back into the app itself, everything it said it had closed was open again.
I also didn’t notice any difference in a separate program that shows me memory usage and storage space on my device. At best, it seems to clear out any running RAM processes, without closing the app, which might give you a temporary boost in speed until you actually go into any other apps again, at which point the processes will restart. At worst, it doesn’t do anything at all, so while this app doesn’t really do much, to be honest, it isn’t going to hurt anything if you want to give it a try.

To be honest, I don’t think this app is incredibly useful. It doesn’t do much – it doesn’t act as a task manager closing apps, and while the bar in the app itself says that it frees up memory, other programs I run showed no change, and if you go out of the app and go back in, it will be right back at the same place it was before you cleaned it. So it really doesn’t do much at all.
Ease of Use:
I’ll give it one thing – this app is easy to use. It doesn’t require root, and while the buttons to close individual apps doesn’t seem to do anything, hitting close all will temporarily close any running processes.
Because it doesn’t seem to make any permanent closes, you would need to use the app frequently throughout the day to keep closing down running processes you aren’t currently using.
The interface is very clean, with just a bar at the top showing what it says is the current memory usage, which will change before and after cleaning, along with a list of all the apps running.
