    I got this for my iPad (which means it's a freebie for my iPhone) and it actually works much better on the phone. I've had it a coupla weeks and I can confirm that it works. Just run it a coupla times throughout the day and it will kill all the non-used background processes etc making apps more responsive and lengthens battery life quite a bit.

    It kill the residual processes that use up ram after you've turned off an app etc. 'Knowing how to use the phone' doesnt fully keep you from having memory issues. This is one of the few maintenence apps I've that does the job and then some.

    I've paid for this and tried it.

    IMO it doesn't work as advertised and is a waste of money.

    It doesn't close an app that you've opened and then navigated away from.
    Most users are probably unaware that they may have 20+ apps running in the background which are slowing the phone down and sapping the battery.

    If the app were to close these apps I could see the advantage.

    If you turn off something such as WiFi or location services and run the app, it appears to claim some memory for you.

    However if you leave those services turned off and check the app again in a couple of hours the RAM usage will have returned to what it was before it was the app was last run.

    It seems to be killing essential services which auto restart as required.

    I have not seen any improvement in battery life.

    My AT&T Back-flip is crapping out on me now. I'm not even sure when I got this thing, but it's been close to a year, and it's fading away on me.

    I run a couple of different ram-sucking soundboard apps for the band that will often crash both the phone and ipad if I don't run the memory kill. You're right, the services do come back on and start sucking ram again but it only takes a few seconds to run the memory kill anyway. Useful or not depending on needs I guess.
