On our device? As we have 2gb ram anyway. Been reading about it and think it's a bit pointless?

It certainly helped little on my 1GB S3 but yeah I think it's pretty much pointless on our device. I haven't bothered trying it myself.

On my Xperia Arc S with 512mb RAM it helped quite a bit but on the Nexus 5 its pointless as its hard enough to use up 2gb of RAM.
