a lot of iPhone apps are CRAP at freeing memory.

So things like image manipulation will crap out and crash (exit and return you to the home screen), this is also why Safari will crash out too if loading lots of images or pages.

So the app frees memory that can be freed.

Simple really. The iPhone really needs more RAM. Even another 32mb would be better.

I didn't know this app existed. I've tried killing PIDs from a command line but it won't give me a runlevel access high enough to kill the important stuff.

I already bought this app and am tentatively pumped about it.

it does it automagically... you can't kill specific PIDs (because the SDK doesn't allow that). But it works REALLY well.
