HTC EVO 4G :: New User / What Does Kill Applications Task Manager Do?

Aug 7, 2010

I am a new android user. I am a new smart phone user. I used to just use a cell phone for calls and texts. Where do I start? What applications do I absolutely need? There are a few applications that are already on the phone that I'll never use (like twitter). I can't seem to get rid of them (do I need to?) What does the kill applications task manager do?

Can anyone recommend a good task manager to get from the market.

Been using the super security app which has slowed my phone down and the task manager on it isnt the best

Android :: Which Applications To Exclude In Advanced Task Manager?

Nov 19, 2009

First post, just registered, thought it'd be a great idea since I have the Droid. Have had the Advanced Task Manager and I love it, but it seems as though when I end all tasks(which I usually do to save time from individually picking which ones should be ended), it might mess with my network/system processes. I recently did a factory reset because my GPS wasn't tracking my location well. I tried to just power off the phone and see if my GPS could locate me, but it couldn't. When I first got the phone the GPS would pick me up and track me if I was moving just like that. I was afraid the task manager could have messed something up with my network processes. Any ideas?

Samsung Captivate :: Advanced Task Manager And Idle Applications

Oct 3, 2010

I have been using Advanced Task Manager and its been working perfect. I did notice that after I ended the apps later on they would show up again on the list. Some of the the apps that start again have not been run by me in days but just show up on the Tasks List. Why would an app come on if I did not run it?

Samsung Moment :: Removing Applications That Reload In Advanced Task Manager

Jun 24, 2010

I've got almost everything streamlined for DE03 but I keep seeing two Apps that always reload in Advanced Task Manager:
com.samsung.internal, and
System Updates
First question, since I'm not using Sprint's version of software, do I *need* either of these?
And, if *not*...what are the names of the files, so I can rip 'em out?

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.

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.

Android :: App For Task Kill Schedule

Dec 25, 2009

I am looking for an app that kills tasks that are running on a schedule. To be able to choose how often it kills the tasks, 5 or 15 or 30 minutes. So I can have the app running and know that every lets say 15 minutes it kills the tasks that I selected to always be killed I would prefer this method over screen blank apps that kill tasks.

General :: Way To Kill Dialer Task So That It Won't Restart

Jan 3, 2013

So now I fully optimized my galaxy mini, and I have cyanogenmod 7 mebitek slim, I did everything to optimize it, installed V6, overclock 825 Mhz, killed every unnecessary task, even killed launcher by THIS way, have 230 MB free RAM of 279(true free about 205 MB) and now in RAM when I play a game there is just android system task and dialer task, and I was wondering, is there a way to kill dialer, because when I kill it with Task Killer ProMax Mini and select root kill, it kills dialer, but it auto-restart all the time...

So, is there a way to kill it without after killing auto-restart?

Android :: Use Advanced Task Mangers Auto Kill

Jun 15, 2010

I downloaded Advanced Task Manager and read this article and it didn't really explain how to use the auto-kill function. Of the five tabs, I can't figure out how to take advantage of it. I've been using ATK, but I'd rather stick to just one app. Which one has worked better for you? And how do I take advantage of ATM's auto-kill?

Android :: Safely Save Everything Before A Kill The Activity Task

Feb 17, 2010

When the user press the home key, the onPause method is called. At this time, the application is supposed to save its state so it can be properly recovered later.

However, and if the state is taking too much time? For example, issuing a closeAllNetworkConnections that was waiting a feedback from the server, or just if the amount of information we're writting to disk is a lot of info... what would happen?

In my tests, i'm getting from 300-500 ms of time until the process is killed.

Is there a safer place to put a "save everything and quit" code so that it can safely save everything before a "kill the activity" task is issued?

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 :: How To Kill Background Applications?

Jul 14, 2009

I am currently writing a program to kill processes that the users choose to end. From the log Cat, I notice that a Signal 9 has been sent to the application but the process is still running. I am only able to kill my own process through the code below. I understand that the kernel only allow killing of processes that have some relation to my program, but how do I kill other processes other than my own?
Below is my code: android.os.Process.killProcess(processID);

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.
