Hmm WriteStuff offers HWR you shouldn't need to use Standlone Freebies
and they may conflict.

If you are running out of heap it will say "you are running out of
memory, restarting may help this problem?" and gives you a restart button

Yes you can always transfer applications (packages) to your flashcard
but that won't help you if your problem is heap. Only freezing will
help heap problems (that or a upgrade). How to move a application: open
extras, tap and hold on a package till you hear the squeak and the
package is highlighted, tap folder (file) and file it to your flash
card. This will work with most applications unless they are protected.
 If that is the case you either need to delete the package and reinstall
it from your desktop this time installing on the card. Or use
EEUnprotect package. This will allow you to move it over even if the
protect bit is on.
