Ionic high memory(ram) usage

I have an ionic application I am developing for my company. I used one of the starter menu templates available and built on that. I have 5 pages total. I utilize my service a lot to grab data from our database. Also I am using crosswalk for android.

Starting at the login screen, ram usage is already at 170mb. Once I login and jump into some pages, it jumps to 200-220mb ram usage.

Anyone else experiencing similar behavior? Is it crosswalk that is hogging ram?

Yes crosswalk does not help, is your database on mobile or on server?

Database is on a server. I call data through a webservice

How much data are you downloading? Maybe consider paging instead of downloading a lot of data at once.
