    Well I just found on the Market there is an App called DroidSwap. It lets you create a swap partition on your SD card (if you have rooted your Droid) which will improve the performance of your Droid.

    I have not tried the app yet as my Droid isnt rooted, but I am considering rooting it now and installing this app.

    For those of you who don't know what a swap partition is, it is basically like added RAM which runs a bit slower than your normal ram depending on if it is on a HD, SD card, etc.

    Know of any apps that can tell us if we're hitting the point that we actually need swap? As a member of the anti task killer brigade, I need to be shown I need this.

    I'm not sure if this is what you mean but there are 2 widgets in the market. Internal memory widget and sd card widget. They will tell you how much is free out of the max.

    With the Droid coming with a relatively slow Class 2 card I wonder how well this will work. Be sure to let us know!

    Is this the ram that the phone stores the apps on, or what?
