General :: Prevent App From Showing Up In Task Manager (Android 4+)

Jul 8, 2012

I'm not a developer myself, but I'm wondering if it is possible to prevent an app to show up in the task manager? In other words: is it possible to create an app that does not show up in the task manager? I think this would be very usefull feature for certain apps that run in the background and have an icon in the notification area.

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?

Android :: Prevent App / Service From Being Killed From Task Manager?

May 7, 2010

It is very important that my service stay running until someone with a password stops the service from my UI screen. My app runs great but it is designed to be turned on/off by parents (with a password) on their kids phones. I have managed to make everything work but the problem I'm having is that if the kid uses a task manager to kill my service then my app is useless. I would be grateful to anyone who knows a way to either

1) monitor the service and start it back up automatically if its "killed"
or
2) prevent someone from being able to kill it except from the activity (administration screen) that launched the service. Or both?

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.

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??

HTC Droid Eris :: Task Killer - Task Manager

Dec 11, 2009

I know this was talked about before at different times but I still have 3 questions.

1. what is the difference between a task killer and a task manager?

2. should we be using one of these apps or not?

3. when you look at the awake time if it is like 70% or 80% and you aren't using the phone a bunch I take it that means something is running,how can you find what is running.and is the awake time that big of deal?

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.

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 :: 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.

Android :: Favorite Task Killer - Manager - Advanced Task Killer Free

Aug 22, 2009

Anyway, I just wanted for everyone to post their favorite Task Manager/Killer, and why, and if there are any flaws. I personally use Advanced Task Killer Free. It has a simple UI, and the when you select or unselect apps it remebers it so next time you launch the app you can only remove the apps that you usually do, and keep ones that always run. It doesn't slow down or break the system.

Android :: OS Need Task Manager?

Jul 30, 2010

I have a few questions about Task managers. At the moment I'm using ES Task manager. It works well and has a nice interface. My questions are.

A) Does the Android OS even need a task manager?Some say their not needed. The ones I've used do clear out tasks, frees up memory, and saves on the systems load.

B) What tasks should I clear?Lets say for example I killed voice mail at startup. Does this mean If someone called I would not receive voice mail until I reloaded the voice mail app, or would the phone see a voice mail is incoming and reload the program?

Android :: Which Task Manager/Killer Is This

Jul 23, 2010

I had a very good task manager when I first got my phone (2 weeks ago) but have since then uninstalled it. I know task killers a basically useless but I do have the odd instance where and program crashes and I need to kill the process. From what I can remember the task manager had 3 screens which had the following :-

Screen 1
Currently running programs, press the app to kill it.

Screen 2
The uninstall screen.

Screen 3
Cpu % used and space remaining on the phone and SD.

Android :: Task - Event Manager

Jun 17, 2010

I've been searching around recently for a widget/app that'd allow me to input events and either pop up on my front screen reminding me (The day of/Before.. or whatever) or that I could have at the top of my following screen as the widget and have had no luck.

I'd like this to remind me of certain events that can go about slipping my mind (Student loans due on this day.. Flight leaving at this/that time) Or the general factor that there are a multitude of things to do and it's nice to stay organized.

Android :: Rooted G1's - Task Manager

Feb 18, 2009

I dont know why i havent heard more about this app on here but this thing is great if you have a rooted G1. You can stop any application at anytime from a simple window. I woke up this morning and had 8 programs running - they started by themselves in my sleep but stop them all and freed up 21708 worth of memory. Phone zooms after this quick step. Its a free app in the market. Take a look at it if you havent already.
