We’ve talked before about the various ways to economize on your Android’s RAM use, but we’ve rediscovered a super lightweight app that’s probably the fastest tool out there for freeing up RAM. Fast Reboot might confuse you with its name, but this free app won’t restart your smartphone – it actually closes and restarts all your system process to lighten up your phone in a tremendous way.
Fast Reboot is surprising for several reasons. In these times of endless customization, this app has no options whatsoever, and starts its process when you tap the icon. Once that’s done, the app simulates a system reboot to close and reopen all the apps you’ve got running. You’ll know this because you’ll see a window with a list of the apps that got closed and the amount of RAM freed up at the top. And there you go. In seconds and with hardly any effort you’ll have taken a load off your smartphone’s operating system.
We’ve mentioned that Fast Reboot is surprising and, given how well it works, there’s no doubt about that. But another thing that makes it stand out from the rest is how light it is. The APK weighs less than 50 KBs and once it’s installed on your Android you’ll note it never tops 100 KBs when it’s running. These are wild figures compared to what we’re used to: while we usually sing the praises of an app that weighs less than 1 MB, imagine our surprise when we checked the weight of Fast Reboot.
This tool is great for people who want to skip out on all the hassle and need an extra boost of RAM when their phone starts getting sluggish. Fast Reboot is a great choice for anybody and its simplicity is one of its greatest virtues.
