    No, because OSX does a great job at memory management. Many of these types of utilities do very little in terms of actual user experience.

    Save your money and don't bother with these apps. If you're short on ram, and incurring page outs, then no app is going to improve your performance. Rather get more ram.

    If you have Xcode installed you can just run "purge" in Terminal. It will have the same result.
