    Apple can verify that there isn't a single App on the market that can do what you are saying it does. It simply doesn't exist. So you are seeing a placebo effect.

    Seriously, either read the developer submission requirements or call Apple and talk to the developer application support team (this may cost you $99 USD if you are not a developer already).

    I'm still not convinced it does anything. It's always about 80 to 120 when I open the app and goes to normally about 220 in 3 secs seems great. But then I go on safari and such for 30 mins or so, then open the app and guess what???? It's about 80 to 120 and works its way up to 220 or so??? So what for it to work do you have to only see that screen???


    Reply from support,

    Hi,

    It frees memory on start. The Recent Apps list does not show currently running apps, just your recently used ones. The list in the app shows currently running processes.

    Thanks.

    And all it does is request memory that is not "in use" and then releases it. Which is NOT FREEING ANYTHING becaus it was already NOT IN USE.

    Talk about snake oil.


    And for the people that actually want to learn, this is how iOS works with memory.

    There are 5 types of memory usage.

    1) Wired - Can NOT be released except by the OS.

    2) Active - Can only be released by the OS, the application or the user killing the task.

    3) Inactive - Memory that has data that can be used by anyone. But if the app that is in that slot is relaunched it will be moved to Active and save battery life.

    4) Other - Can be released by anyone. Used to store temp data.

    5) Free - Currently not assigned to anything.


    An app can cause Inactive and Free to shrink in size and then release it to move to Free. But since the DATA wasn't in use anyway, you just wasted battery life for nothing.


    In fact here is an actual real world test of how things work in iOS - http://www.iphoneforums.net/forum/i...lets-separate-facts-fiction-40230/#post210674
