General :: How To Close All Apps / Is There A Task Manager

Mar 16, 2012

I've been with my Droid 4 for about a week, but it has slowed down for some reason.I'm suspecting that it's due to all those open apps, which I don't know how to close.How do you close all apps? Is there task manager? I come from the Windows Mobile world, and, as archaic as the OS was, it was very easy to bring up the task manager, just like in the Desktop Windows OS, and close any or all apps to reclaim memory and speed.

General :: Random Apps Showing Up In Task Manager?

May 4, 2012

I have this Motorola Flipside and I installed GOLauncher on it. With it I am using the GO Task Manager, and some other widgets, etc. as well. I have noticed that I will close out stuff I am not using any more, using the GO TM widget, and I will turn off the display/put phone to sleep. Then I'll get a text or something and tend to that, hit the home screen and will see the TM and there are like 10 apps open. I'll close them out again and put the phone back to sleep. A few mins later an e-mail or text comes in and I'll tend to it, home screen, again, a bunch of random apps show up in the TM.

Apps like Facebook Camera, ESPN Score Center, GPS, News, Settings, a widget that I don't even use and others randomly populate in the TM. I haven't even opened them or used them, but they are there. The things that were used are in there, and the items I have locked are there, but that's expected. I just don't understand why things are showing up there that haven't been opened. And randomly? Sometimes I will even close them out, hit refresh on the widget and it will just be what is supposed to be there, hit refresh again, bam - more random things show up. Close those, hit refresh a few times, those/others show up again.

What do I need to change? Or is this just something to do with the phone/launcher, perhaps?

General :: Non-Root Task Manager That Can Close Apps Automatically

Apr 6, 2014

I'm looking for something that will close apps (and the commands that make them relaunch) in an automatic way (i.e every time the said app is beign activated).

I need something non root ( the apps being closed are not an internal part of the rom), preferably free, and that is trustworthy (security wise).

Motorola Droid :: Task Manager Exclude List

Nov 12, 2009

No matter what task manager you're using, I'm curious as to what programs are in your exclude lists. I've added programs that I noticed continuously popping up (I guess the phone wants them?) as well as some of the widgets I have running. Here's my list: Code...

Android :: App Appears Multiple Times In Recent Apps List

Aug 26, 2010

A number of users of my app have reported that on the Nexus One, running Froyo 2.2, the app appears multiple times in the 'Recent Apps' list that is displayed when you long press the home button. Personally, I have not been able to replicate the issue. Have tried killing the app with a task killer then restarting it to see if that would cause the app to appear more than once on the list. Also tried spawning multiple thread from within an activity in the app, but still no go. I have also tested on Droid phones running 2.2 as well as on the 2.2 emulator but to no avail. It is curious that only Nexus One Froyo users experience the issue. The app has one main launcher activity, about 30 different activities and is divided into 4 main tasks to help manage the activity stack. The app also has an IntentService for running network operations in the background. Is there any know scenario that could cause an app to appear multiple times in the 'Recent Apps' list? Is the 'Recent Apps' list populated based on the app package name e.g. com.mycompany.myappname or based on the tasks defined in the application manifest file?

Android :: Don't Need Task Manager To Shut-down Apps

Nov 29, 2009

I've had my hero for 3 or 4 days now.I understand that i do not need a task manager to shut-down apps, but don't fully understand how this works,since apps like Pandora (music streaming) and sportypal (gps tracking) continue to run in the "background." Adding to my confusion is the fact that I'm noticing the phone get sluggish lately, even after a fresh reboot, with only two programs running (Pandora and sportypal). The past 3 days, there were no problems, but now I cannot run with music because the music continues to skip - and pandora becomes unresponsive.I thought perhaps there were too many apps (I've downloaded about a dozen apps) and so I uninstalled most of them.No better.What, if anything, am I missing? Can I be low on space or memory, or what?

Dolphin Browser

Android :: Task Manager - Not Killer - Like In Winmo - So Know Which Apps Are Open

Jun 17, 2010

I like how in winmo , you can click the top right icon area and pull up all open apps to quickly switch between them. with android, i have to hit the home screen, swipe left (usually one time) to find my app and "re-open" it again. it's a hassle. maybe android doesn't have this option, maybe it's just a winmo thing, but i'm still getting adjusted from winmo > android.

Samsung Vibrant : Apps Installed - Yelp - Motris - Task Manager

Sep 8, 2010

I've scoured endlessly on Google looking for the best apps for Vibrant. Then I thought why not ask actual users,

These are MY apps on my vibrant:

WHERE - a restaurant finder. Pretty good, I've had issues with the app pinpointing my location, but could have been a fluke.
YELP - another restaurant finder.
FACEBOOK - no introduction needed. This app really needs an update. Keeps switching me b/w the app and the mobile site. Some of my mail threads on fb stop halfway and I can't see new replies.
MOTRIS - a tetris style game. Kind of good but hard to move the pieces around.
TASK MANAGER - an app killer. Pretty good. Could be a lot better, though.
FANDANGO - an app that helps you find theaters near you. Good.
What do you have?

Android : Application Disappears From "recent Apps" List / How To Get Back?

Dec 15, 2009

I am writing an app that wants to be able to handle URLs. I also want to be able to launch it stand-alone with no arguments, so I've specified two intent filters: I have also specified android:launchMode="singleTask". Now, if I explicitly launch my application from the application list, its name and icon can be found in the "recent apps" list that pops up when I hold the home key. If I then use the email application to open a URL in my application, my application disappears from the "recent apps" list. Why does this happen, and what can I do about it? I notice that the Browser application doesn't behave like this, and it has similar intent filters and the same launchMode..

HTC EVO 4G :: Add Apps To Ignore List For Advanced Task Killer?

Jun 18, 2010

First off let me tell you what I have done. I've turned off Wifi, 4G, email updates when I check it. I turn off internet and the other "data to apps" setting. I lowered the brightness. Turned off GPS and Bluetooth.

As of now I'm doing the plugging in charger, unplugging trick several times...to see if that helps. (I must admit it's stupid that I even have to try this)

So, here are my questions:

1. How to I add apps to the ignore list for advanced task killer? I go to the ignore section and it's just a black screen. I don't know how to add apps.

2.What exactly is the CDMA" thing? I know what to do (I've seen the link)...but I don't know WHAT it does. Will it effect my ability on the phone?

3. What exactly is Google Talk...and how do I get rid of it(if it takes a lot of battery power) I noticed that if I hold the "finder" button and talk I can search on google! Really cool! If I turn off google talk is that feature gone? Also...how do I turn off google talk? (I could find it...but I consider this my "lazy" question".

Sprint HTC Hero :: Task Panel X - Advanced Task Manager - Causing Errors

Nov 7, 2009

I've been using Task Panel X and Advanced Task manager to kill unneeded tasks and keep memory at a maximum.

Recently, every time I open Task Panel X and then revert back to Home screen I get the HTC logo and then a loading screen while the device sets itself. This happens even if I kill NO tasks.

So my solution was to uninstall Task Panel X and then use just Advanced Task Manager. All the sudden, same result.

Everytime I open either of these apps and then go back to home screen I get a BLACK SCREEN WITH HTC LOGO, THEN A BRIEF (10 SECONDS) LOADING SCREEN. THEN ALL IS NORMAL.

Sprint HTC Hero :: How To Use - Task Manager - Task Killer App

Oct 15, 2009

Looking for a guide on how to use task killer. I had task killer on and deleted it. I think I was killing tasks that were needed to keep certain functions running that I use frequently. If someone would take the time to help me understand how to use one, I think I would be much more successful with it.

example - text messaging just stopped ( werrent receiving them ) . Once I took task killer off, everything started working again.

Android :: Does Async Task Queue Or Similar Exist?

Jun 12, 2010

I read somewhere (and have observed) that starting threads is slow. I always assumed that AsyncTask created and reused a single thread because it required being started inside the UI thread.The following (anonymized) code is called from a ListAdapter's getView method to load images asynchronously. It works well until the user moves the list quickly, and then it becomes "janky".final File imageFile = new File(getCacheDir().getPath() + "/img/" + p.image);image.setVisibility(View.GONE);view.findViewById(R.id.imageLoading).setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
(new AsyncTask<Void, Void, Bitmap>() {
@Override
protected Bitmap doInBackground(Void... params) {
try {Bitmap image;
if (!imageFile.exists() || imageFile.length() == 0) {
image = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(new URL(
"http://example.com/images/"
+ p.image).openStream());
image.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 85,
new FileOutputStream(imageFile));
image.recycle();
}image = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(imageFile.getPath(),
bitmapOptions);
return image;
} catch (MalformedURLException ex) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
ex.printStackTrace();
return null;
} catch (IOException ex) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
ex.printStackTrace();
return null;
@Override
protected void onPostExecute(Bitmap image) {
if (view.getTag() != p) // The view was recycled.
return;
view.findViewById(R.id.imageLoading).setVisibility(
View.GONE);
view.findViewById(R.id.image)
.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
((ImageView) view.findViewById(R.id.image))
.setImageBitmap(image);
}}).execute();I'm thinking that a queue-based method would work better, but I'm wondering if there is one or if I should attempt to create my own implementation.

General :: Task Manager Randomly Stops Working?

Apr 19, 2013

I'm using the Note 2 with Cleanrom 4.7.0 and Nova prime. I've searched the forums but can't find a solution. My task manager randomly stops working (press and hold home) at least once a day. I will get haptic feedback when the home button is long pressed but nothing will come up. Sometimes I'll long press the home button and the task manager will show up for a split second and then disappear. A restart usually fixes the problem but it's getting annoying as this happens a couple times a day.

General :: Using End And End All Options (inbuilt Task Manager) In Android

Jan 18, 2013

I saw some previous posts on not using the task killers etc.... I wanted to ask whether one should end a particular ongoing active process or not or even for that matter "end all" active applications..... I know these active apps don't have any CPU usage but active apps r meant to use power rite? So should I use end or end all in the inbuilt task manager/power monitor widget or not to save my battery usage??
