Whenever your app is taking too much memory, the OS will first issue what’s called a “low memory warning” to give you a chance to do something—such as free up memory—before your app is forced to quit. If your app is forced to quit, from your user’s perspective, your app will have crashed and quit (possibly causing a great deal of frustration).
In today’s tutorial, I’ll show you how to respond to these low memory warnings, and recommend things you might do to prevent crashes from occurring (and possibly even preventing low memory warnings altogether).
NOTE: Low memory warnings are currently unreliable on the Android platform, so this tutorial will focus mostly on iOS, though the preventative measures will apply to all platforms.READ MORE
