Default [Q] low application memory July 12 nightly build.

Got a low app memory warning last night. Nook HD
No way to move internal memory hogging apps to sd either.
Anyway to increase internal memory by pulling from sdcard mem?

Thanks.

No. But your media files and your app data storage area share the same space. And if you have an 8Gb HD that can fill up fast if you have large games or a lot of media files. The solution is to either delete or move those media files to your external SD.

What's the memory usage mean under 'running' in the settings/ apps?

That is RAM, not storage. The Nook has 768MB of RAM available and has nothing to do with storage space on the device. When you move apps to SD, that is storage, not RAM. And Android has a very efficient system of loading apps into and out of active RAM. The user does not have to do anything at all.
