    Do App games use a lot of memory?

    If you want to find out how much memory your applications are using.

    Go to your iPhone's homepage.

    Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage.

    You'll see the application with a readout of the MB or GB of memory used.

      That doesn't show the amount of memory the programs use. It shows the amount of space they take up. Different things. You can't see exactly how much memory any application is using on an iPhone; but you can clear them from memory at any time.

    If you are actually referring to the amount of *memory* that is being used, it varies wildly depending on the application. A simpler application uses less memory than a complex one. So, for example, something like Angry Birds would probably use a lot less than a 3D action game, because less calculations are being made each second (which effects, more than anything else, the amount of memory being used.)

    If you are referring to the amount of disk space used, it still varies wildly, but for different reasons. Games with lots of sounds, or games with video, will tend to take up a lot more space. Large data files can also increase it. Typically, roleplaying games and the like have much larger sizes than simpler casual games

    Edit: I just noticed that this question was filed under Facebook games. In this case, the answer is almost invariably, no. Browser-based games very, very rarely use a lot of memory. If you're running windows, you can find out exactly how much memory is being used by a program at any time by pressing Control + Alt + Delete and going to your task manager. Scroll through the list to find your internet browser, and you will see a value shown for how much memory the browser is using. But I assure you, it will not be a significantly large value.
