    I have an app that loads up a lot of images and can become a hog on the memory I suppose. So I am trying to make it so the user can click a button to clear the cache of the app.

    I have no idea how to do this but so far i have the button :p
    Code (Text):
    2. public class Clear extends Activity {
    3.     protected void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
    4.         super.onCreate(icicle);
    5.         setContentView(R.layout.clear);
    7.         final Button trimCache = (Button) findViewById(R.id.trimCache);
    8.         trimCache.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
    9.             public void onClick(View v) {
    10.                 //clear the cache here
    11.             }
    12.         });
    13.     }
    14. }
    How would I go about making it clear only my apps cache?
    Also as a little bonus can i make it so it sends like a back command so that it returns to the main part of the app since this "Clear" page is accessed via a menu?
