iRamDisk uses a part of computer's RAM to create a volume that can be mounted and used independently.
This volume can be used to reduce the number of writes to disk or to get a very fast writable/readable volume.
iRamDisk is preconfigured for Xcode and Safari/FireFox Caches.
Note : creation of RamDisk under ~/Library path is not allowed.
Minor bug fixes.

a ramdisk is a powerful tool. - this is very good software to use on your computer. a ramdisk can make a lot of software that you use in your daly life faster. iPhoto, and safari, and virtual box are some applications that I use all of the time with iramdisk.
Stay Away - It was a nice utility for mounting Simulators, until 3.5.4 removed the ability to mount under ~/Library without warning. Now it’s just a curiosity and the screen shots and description are misleading about its functionality. When I asked about this via the support email, I received "Well, all recents “bug fixes” are in this way, rarely a "real bug”. Now, since this update, “Normal RamDisk” can not be created in system directories likes Unix folders in / and ~/LIbrary.” This callous response has led me to not use it an more and I can only recommend you avoid this app.

If you have make your SSD life longer, this is must have app - Thanks for nice intuitive UI, great and fast support.
Works well, would like automatic backups - I use this primarily for creating a ramdisk for very large word documents. It makes everything much smoother. You would think that Microsoft could do a better job caching images and whatnot, but that is a separate issue. The one thing that I would like to have added to the app is automatic backups, maybe just for certain kinds of images. Right now I use a different program to for automatic backups, but it would be great if this app could do it.
One of my essential apps - The developer has thoughtfully added great features to this app, making it a pleasure to use. There is built-in support for a RAM disk (of course), but also an Xcode derived data drive (for developers), a Safari cache drive, and more. Also, the app is updated frequently, which is appreciated. Definitely a “must have” app.
