Memory Assistant is a program that helps you free up RAM (Random-Access Memory) without slowing down your computer. This Menu Bar application offers you a simple way to prevent system crashes and keep your Mac running more effectively.
After you launch the app you can notice its icon on your Menu Bar from where you can change the way Memory Assistant operates. The program offers you accurate statistics regarding the performance of your Mac, details that can also be found in the Activity Monitor app (default Mac app for monitoring the performance of your system).
I like the fact that the app comes with an option that, once enabled, automatically optimizes the performance of your system by freeing up RAM. This way, you can resume your work and let Memory Assistant free up the RAM on your drive when it's necessary.
To make sure this app actually does what it's stated on this homepage, I opened Mac's Activity Monitor and compared the statistics. The outcome was 100% accurate.
As a conclusion, Memory Assistant proves to be a smart addition to my collection of Mac programs. The application is very simple to handle, immediately optimizes the performance of your system, and is free of charge.
