"** ROOT ACCESS REQUIRED **
Allows users to set the threshold for Android's memory manager for applications.

Wondering if anyone's used it, your experiences, and also had some questions as there aren't really much explanations other than the market description.
When you open it, it gives you the 6 sliders shown above, that you can adjust from 0 up to 120mb. The slides are for:
There are 3 settings, Aggressive, Mild, and Default. Now, when you adjust this from less to more aggressive, the slider values move left to right (higher) seeming to allocate more memory to that type of application/process.
In the list of sliders I gave above, it consistently has #6 as the highest memory unit, and #1 as the least. My question is, it would seem to me that you would want the services toward the top of that list to have the most memory priority. I would think you'd want Foreground applications to have more available memory than hidden applications, or am I just not looking at this right in regards to what that unit is referring to?
Basically, if anyone can shine a little more light on this app, I'm interested in hearing from you.
