About this app

With Swapper, you will be able to create SWAP Memory for your Android.

FAQ
Why can not I change the location of the SWAP memory for the External SD Card?
Some devices do not support changing the SWAP memory location, when this is identified, the application itself notifies and disables the function.

I created the SWAP memory, but the usage / used bar remains at 0 MB. What happened?
This means that your device has not yet needed to use SWAP Memory. Increase Priority of use , this will make Android give a greater preference to SWAP memory.

Why did not my RAM settings increase in my device settings?
The memory that is displayed in the settings of your device is Physical RAM. Because SWAP is an emulated RAM memory, it will not appear there.

Can I uninstall the application after creating SWAP memory?
No! SWAP memory depends on the application to be activated.

I created the SWAP memory but I can not delete it, what do I do?
Your Android device is probably blocking removal. Uncheck Enable SWAP when starting Android , restart the device, open the application, and try deleting SWAP memory again.

Do I need to delete SWAP memory before uninstalling the application?
Yes! If you uninstall the application without deleting the SWAP memory, it will take up space on your device.

Nice utility. It rescues something Android forgot to include from Linux, whence the kernel derives. With memory swapping, the apps' unused pages, instead of occupying precious RAM, stay in the slower swap file. This increases the number of applications that can fit in memory at a given time, and avoids apps being terminated by the Android system to free RAM for newly-loaded apps. Especially for DeX & similar systems, where the handheld device becomes a desktop (and need to accommodate more apps running simultaneously - without apps being killed to free RAM), this functionality is not just a nice enhancement, it is mandatory. I only give it 4 stars because of the shallow size limit for the swap file, 2GB. The app should allow for up to 2.5 times the size of system RAM - this means up to 10GB in a 4GB device, or 15GB in a 6GB one, and so on - so it can conform to well-known, basic memory swap guidelines for a Linux (Android) system.

Selected external storage for the swapfile, worked fine for few min, then my tablet crashed. Tablet started crashing everytime swapper was loaded on reboot ( I had selected start on bootup ). Had to quickly uninstall the app to get my tablet working. My SDCard is Samsung Evo, newer class, so that isn't a problem. Will probably work with swap on internal memory but afraid to try it now

would be good to have the ability to also create a swap partition & choose the size myself (as large as possible). and an option to create/setup a boot script, so that the swap file/partition even is active when the app is uninstalled, so that the user isn't forced to be bound to the app. I'm sure there are some people out there, appreciating that & then way more like to leave swapper app installed on their devices. on the other hand, swapper's simplicity & options are enough for most needs. 🙂
