So It appears that I have found a neat little memory leak in powerapps
powerapps takes about 1GB RAM to run a small app. If I don't close powerapps and open another app, then powerapps does not deallocate the RAM and now takes up 1.5-2GB.
perhaps powerapps does this so that you can re-open the last app that you used very quickly? false. you can keep switching between 2 apps and the RAM keeps increasing and the load times keep getting longer.
To get around this you just have to close out power apps and wait for all of the memory to deallocate.
@ales-savli If what you meant is disk space, you can exit the published app (i.e. click the back button or swipe to the right to go back to the app catalog screen) which will purge the files downloaded with the refresh calls.
Why does it seem the important issues that are raised are given no response? This is a critical issue that needs to be resolved.

I literally choose a Date combobox, going from one date to another to pull new info, and I find after about 10 changes that my memory has gone up by 200MB. What the hell is this? Give us an option to clear all the allocated memory at least.
Bumping this in case any progress has been made.
I do find that editing entries and going back to the list, back to editing is leading to very high RAM increases. I am using automatic refresh for a gallery (delegated) - does this itself cause more usage than manual refreshes? Surely it will only refresh if and when it needs to?
I would also like to bump this and check if any progress was made. We're currently working with a relatively large PowerApps application that starts with around 500M of memory, but amasses to 1.5GB with no signs of dialing back on consumption. It just keeps getting bigger.
Of course not! It's not a bug it's a feature!
It looks like they fu***d somthing up and they cannot just fix it withouth redesigning the whole app.
