MacPurge forces disk and memory caches to be emptied. It offers a "cold disk buffer cache", which is similar to the state of the operating system after a reboot by running the Terminal command "purge" or "purge ram".

First of all, the purge only frees disk cache memory - not system memory per se.

Second, just go to the terminal and type "purge" or "purge ram".

Thats not entirely correct. It really does release memory leaks caused by apps that do not release it when quitting.
But purge is indeed the same what this apps does.

You like the icon? I can agree with you on all other points about it being free, and why do we need more purge apps, but then again it's free so who cares but the icon is nice comment seems a bit off… Anyhow… another app to run command "purge"….

Yeah I like the icon, since to me what makes an app perfect is when people is thinking about the icon too even it is a small detail :-)
