I have APC installed on my server, and everything seems to be working fine. Even Drupal Reports picks up on the fact that it is loaded.

So, my question is, what is the use of this module? Is it needed for something that I am not already getting?

APC is an opcode cache and a user cache. An opcode cache is where it caches your compiled scripts. This is done out of the box with APC and is what you already have. A user cache is where you can store, say, persistent variables in APC rather than in a database, enabling them to potentially be returned quicker. This module enables the latter.

ah, noted, thanks for the clarification.

This module enables the latter.

But only if you enable the module to do so, like the README shows: http://drupalcode.org/project/apc.git/blob_plain/refs/heads/7.x-1.x:/REA...
