Sluggish PDA? MemMaid Might be your Solution.

SmartPhone Software – MemMaid

MemMaid is a utility for your smartphone or PDA that will keep it running at peak performance. Check it out!


Note: Since by definition “smartphones” are phones that are also PDA’s, the software reviewed here should work with personal digital assistants that are not “smartphones”. Check the operating system because we’ll be reviewing software for both Pocket PC and Palm devices.– Editor

MemMaid by DinarSoft is a powerful little utility that really knows how to clean up your smartphone or PDA device. In using a smartphone like a computer you start to run into similar problems. You have files build up in the cache for the Web browser, open program using up precious available RAM, storage cards becoming fragmented, and more. MemMaid is designed to handle these problems and keep your device working smoothly.

MemMaid removes things like IE cache files, history, cookies,

bookmarks, useless shortcuts and Registry entries, email attachments,log files, and more. Not only can it delete them, it can wipe them so they can’t be recovered. The program can also help you to close programs that are running and taking up precious RAM. If the program just had the ability to clean out useless files and free up memory, it would be worth it, but it can do so much more.

MemMaid gives you the power to control programs that start when your device starts.You can add items, remove items, and even determine what order they load in. You can also use MemMaid to reduce the size of the Pocket Internet Explorer cache, change where Pocket IE stores it’s cache, work with the font cache, and more. One really slick feature in MemMaid is the ability to move a slider and alter the memory that’s available for storage and running programs. This gives you complete control.

MemMaid is simply packed with neat tools to keep your”smartphone” or PDA running smoothly. It can work with plugins, find and remove databases, do wild card searches, and more. If you have a PDA or smartphone this is a program you must have. For all these reasons, MemMaid is not only one of my Picks, but it’s also one of my Dr. File Finder Favorites and there aren’t very many of those. Take a look for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.I recommend it highly.

Skype Will Be the Way..

Internet-calling software provider Skype sees the mobile market as the next frontier for its service, but economic realities in the voice market–coupled with mobile operators who feel threatened by Skype–could put the kibosh on large-scale adoption for some time to come.

Skype, a peer-to-peer software application that allows people to make free phone calls to other Skype users over the Internet, has become an easy and inexpensive way for people all over the world to stay in touch.

In addition to allowing voice calling and instant messaging to other registered Skype users, the service offers premium services, such as Skypeout, which allows cheap calls from Skype to landlines or mobile phones worldwide. Another paid service, Skypeln, provides a personal and portable number that people can use to accept calls anywhere in the world.

Now the company is focusing its efforts on the mobile market.

“Our users aren’t always at a computer,” said Tony Saigh, business development manager for mobile at Skype. “But 96 percent of the time people have their cell phones within 1 meter of them, so it makes sense for us to extend our application to users on mobile devices. I think it also opens the market up for us to people who want the freedom of using Skype but don’t want to be tied to a computer.”

While these devices will all connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi or, eventually, the WiMax broadband wireless technology, Skype has also struck a deal with a major wireless carrier to embed its application on cell phones that will use the carrier’s 3G cellular network. In October, the company announced the new Skype phone in collaboration with the U.K.-based mobile operator Hutchison 3 UK. The phone, which is being demonstrated at CES, is already available over 3’s network in seven countries, including the U.K., Australia, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and soon Hong Kong.

“When you look at adoption of VoIP on the PC, it was all about cost avoidance,” said Charles Golvin, an analyst with Forrester Research. “Skype offers some clear feature benefits, but I’m not sure that is going to be enough to entice people to download the service or even encourage carriers to partner with them.”
