How to know which application is consuming what amount of memory on my phone. With only 2Gb of songs and approx 30-40 apps my phone shows 200 Mb left when connected to Zune. This is a pain. How to find out the culprit and remove that app?

  • its using zune. I am looking for exact memory usage without using zune. Like memory taken up by each app you have installed. There should be some mechanism. – Milan Aggarwal Oct 23 '12 at 3:23
  • The accepted answer to the other question was effectively "You can't measure by app, best option is to monitor the overall usage" – Rowland Shaw Oct 23 '12 at 11:44
  • hmm.. So there is no third party tool like windows phone manager or any other equivalent? – Milan Aggarwal Oct 24 '12 at 3:09
  • Apps are so tightly isolated from each other on the Windows Phone OS that apps can't even detect what other apps are installed, nor see the disk space used, other than what they've used. – Rowland Shaw Oct 24 '12 at 7:33

Sorry, but right now there is no way to know this. The windows OS is a closed eco-system, in which the applications have control over their allocated space and memory and no one can access the others.

Currently, the phone memory and battery life are not accessible to the developers. These setting solely reside with the OS. In future update, you might expect this but not surely

  • ya i know that but is there any hack or third party software which can tell me this as my phone is dev unlocked. – Milan Aggarwal Oct 18 '12 at 10:03
