Game Mode for iPhone

just messing around again while waiting for December


just an idea(again )
if there's an Airplane Mode, there should also be Game Mode
it could be toggled on the settings
there would be three levels-Low,Medium and High
Low level will free up memory
Medium Level will free up memory,and force quit all apps except Phone app
Last is the High Level wherein it does everything Medium Level does but it force quit Phone app also. This means you won't be able to receive SMS and calls.
In this level also, almost every unnecessary processes will be terminated, even Springboard if possible, only processes that are needed for running apps will kept alive.
I just thought that this way we can use all the power of our beloved devices for gaming
and it can easily be toggled on and off on the settings app

WTF= What the F*ck!

Love the idea. Airplane Mode works well for games as it is, but something like what you describe would be even better.
