General :: Google+ Application Cache Size Is Huge?
Jan 15, 2012
I went to do a nandroid backup and it failed, "no space on my SD card".
Thats weird, as usually have at least 4 gig on my Nexus S 4g.
Poking around, it was the cache from Google plus,).[url].... That, coupled with my titanium backup of same ate my SDCARD. easy to fix Titanium from backup it up, but the cache is still several gigs large. 40,000 + files with [number].screen extensions.
I have like 2 friends on google+, 3 posts, and can not for the life of me figure out what in the world all that data is.
I'm going to remove the data , freeze the app, but just wanted to know if noticed a disproportionate amount of data in the Google+ app compared to the amount of activity/usage I have on google+.
I do really love cloud computing... But, Google seems to have forgot something: set a limit to the cache size.
I have a Nexus S and my poor 16Gb internal memory is saturated because of caches: Google+, Android Gallery (Picasa), Google Music and Google Listen all fight for the sdcard space.
The only apps who have explicit cache settings is Google Listen... The others don't have obvious options. I have 10K songs, 10-20K photos, etc.. I need to access them, but I need to limit the cache size.
Is there a way to easily limit cache size per apps?
I am wondering if it is possible to limit the size of the dalvik-cache. I am looking for an alternative to putting it on the sdcard. Maybe I could create a partition on the internal storage for the cache?
I'm implementing an image cache system for caching downloaded image.
My strategy is based upon two-level cache: Memory-level and disk-level.
My class is very similar to the class used in the droidfu project
My downloaded images are put into an hashmap and the Bitmap objet is wrapped inside a SoftRererence object.
Also every image is saved permanently to the disk. If a requested image is not found into the Hashmap<String,SoftReference<Bitmap>> it will be searched on the disk, readed, and then pushed back into the hashmap. Otherwise the image will be downloaded from the network.
Since I store the images into the phisical device momery, I have added a check for preserve the device space and stay under a 1M of occupied space:
This method is called sometime afte a disk writing:
What I'd like to add is the same check on the HashMap size to prevent it will grow too much. Something like this:
My question is: What could be a right MAX_MEMORY_SIZE value? Also, Is it a good approach? A good answer also could be: "Don't do it! SoftReference is already enough"
My app has a WebView which displays Google maps. I'm trying to limit the cache size to a reasonable one - like 2MB. After checking with settings->applications->manage applications I found out that regular page load gets the cache to 900kb. And dispite my efforts, I can't limit the cache size or monitor when the cache limit is being reached. If I'm playing with the map on the webview, the app can even reach 10MB and no "ache max size reached" message is received.
I've just got myself a Desire since last week and I am really really happy with it. It's my first android phone (previously had a Nokia N95) so I am still trying to get my head around it. I've just realised that the phone is using massive quantities of data over the last two or three days. I have installed an app to show me how much and it is saying over 4gb, a lot of it during the night when I have not being using the phone.
I have obviously been using the phone a lot since I got it but nothing close to that amount. The most data hungry app that I can think of that I have used is Grooveshark and that was only for about 20 minutes. Also I have gone into all the apps I can think of and made sure that they are either set for manual sync or else no more than once a day. Is there a way for me to tell which app or widget or whatever is using all of this data? I am sure I have forgot to change the settings on something but I cannot figure out what it could be.
Configure the web browser cache size? In HTC's new product HERO, they limit the cache size from 100KB to 6MB, and user can configure it manually. It can prevent browser sucking up memory space too much.
I'm facing the infamous problem of "not enough space" when downloading from the market, while I actually have plenty of space. The ultimate solution seems to be moving download cache to the SD card (symbolic link). The problem is that the download cache with ICS and Google Play isn't located in /cache/download anymore, and I have been unable to find where it is located both searching with Google and browsing the filesystem.
So I've had my DHD for 3 days, done a little 3G browsing the usual stuff Facebook, emails etc., but nothing more as I used my home WiFi for the widget and app downloads. But today I got a text from Vodafone saying I was near my internet usage limit for the Month! Within 3 days!? I have a 750MB limit, which the chap in the shop assured me was enough to keep me happy as 'no one ever goes over that.'
I was happy with that even though my previous contract was unlimited internet as he said it would be ok. All I can think of is the email syncing, so turned that off. But what else could be causing me to go over the 750MB limit within 3 days? Surely thats a huge amount to be used?
Ever since Google started allowing offline maps (both in the old Google Maps incarnation, and in the current one), I have found that when I download a map section for offline viewing, often there are many details missing (small street names, for example).
Any way to make Google maps download map tiles to their maximum level of detail (the level you could get if you zoomed in all the way), including all street names? You'd think this would be a given, but it seems not to be.
Searching around for discussions of this, most articles and forum threads are just about tile caching in general, not level of detailed cached.
In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
I am running a cm10 based Rom on my note 2 and as such can't move apps to the sd card through the usual channels. I was able to get my play music cached songs to store on the external sd and any way to do the same for Google Play magazines as they take up more room.
Can somebody explain to me what makes up the installed application size? I have an apk that is about 8 MB, and often when I install I get the INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE error. I have around 25-30 MB free space on the phone. I'm doing debugging so I have to upload lots of new versions. If I uninstall the previous version then I can install the new version. The application manager claims that the app is taking up 22 MB. So back to the original question, how come the app is taking up 22 MB when it really only is 8 MB?
when I want to stream one particular song I noticed that the Google Play Music app downloads and caches the previous/next few songs for quicker access. How can I prevent this? It uses a lot of data and I usually only want to listen to the one song I chose to stream.
For example if I play a 6 mb song i noticed it uses about 40 mb to stream just that one song. Then I selected a different song to stream and immediately went into settings > download queue and noticed it was loading more songs than the one I requested. I only want to listen to the 1 song I chose, so how can I prevent the other songs from loading? As far as I can see there is no way in the app's settings but there has to be another way to stop this inconvenience.
P.S. I have a T999 galaxy s3 running on stock rooted ICS
We've had our desire's for a few weeks now and was just wondering what the phones performance is like for you guys/gals? you've all put on apps that you want and music and videos etc., has this affected the phone in anyway? Does it still run like it did out of the box or do you experience lag or other faults? Interested what you have to say.
The only gripe that I have is it is sometimes slow to access the market and takes a few seconds to load the page when scrolling down and I've got a stutter when I access an app to read reviews. Other than that it still runs smooth, I've got music, videos, apps, widgets and voice to text on mine and is easily the best phone I've ever had. Has anybody got a cache cleaner app, I can only find one for rooted phones?
I'm trying to understand the way android handles my application cache data....Some times i'll go in there and the cache directory is 6-7mb. What type of data is stored there? Is there a way in the mainifest I can say don't use cache or clear cache at Xmb ?
I have a WebView. I'm not quite sure how caching works for it. Ideally I'd like to load a web page from the network once (images included), then from then on only ever load it from the local cache. I'm not sure if we have this level of control over webview. Will it at some point just auto-clear the cache? How could I tell? I need to be sure that it's really keeping the page cached between different runs of my application.http://developer.android.com/reference/android/webkit/WebSettings.html.
TrekBuddy is very good, but it produces cache for rmaps and many other apps, but not for Google Maps.So I wonder if there is a tool which can do this, or convert the cache of TrekBuddy to the cache of Google Maps, which can be used by android cell phones?
Quick App Clean Cache. Any one else notice this is now missing from the Market? I'm assuming its due to the fact its copy protected but now its unpurchasable. Any one know another location it can be found? I wanted to buy this but should have done it before updating to 2.1 v3.
Since few days ago, com.htc.bgp has been force closing on my HTC Hero. I have tried pretty much any remedy I have found on the internet, but it still bugs. Here's a list: -Hard reset -Deleting caches from ALL of the apps -Deleting the HTC Sense app on Facebook.com (with hard reset) -Turning off Facebook sync (this DID work, but losing functionality that worked just a few days ago kind of sucks).
I have set of images fetched from internet and set it on gridview,here i have option to click here to view more,below the grid view and it fetches images and set it on grid with prevoius set of images,when i exit the application and run it again,the previous set of images remain in cache and grid shows images from cache,here i need to clear my application cache memory,when i exited my application.how can i get it.
