Nexus :: Running Apps / Get A Task Killer?

Feb 4, 2010

I noticed on a lot of the other threads: "If you hold down 'home' you can see your running apps, so you don't need a task killer, just to exit the apps properly" However, on my Nexus I hold down 'home' and it just shows me the last 6 apps I've used. Is there a different way of doing this for the Nexus. or am I stuck with having to get a Task Killer/Manager?

HTC Incredible :: Is Running Task Killer Harmful In Any Way?

Sep 1, 2010

Sorry for yet another task killer thread, but I can't find an answer to this one. I understand from several of you that task killers are not needed because of the way the Android system operates. I have tried and tried all of the suggestions given on how to manage apps manually, but my Inc is just plain faster when I close all running apps.My question is this, is running a task killer harmful in any way?

HTC EVO 4G : Advanced Task Killer - Why So Many Apps Running

Jul 18, 2010

I followed the advice of getting ATK installed to "Quit" apps and preserve battery life. My problem is so many apps are running and I never launched them. WTH?

Why are so many apps constantly running? I can quit all apps, plug into charger, then check it 10-15 minutes later & they are all up again. Apps like Sprint Navi, Amazon MP3, etc.....stuff I never use at all.

Android : Task Killer And Running Apps

Dec 17, 2009

what I understand there are apps that will automatically restart even after you kill them? I often see things such as Spring Nav, Calander, VM, IM, Voice Search etc etc, in the task screen...even when i havent been on the program all day and have killed it. Why do these start back up and, is there a way to keep them off? I only ask because I notice my phone starts to lag and when i check the ATK i see several draining my memory (and battery?) so I try and clear em out again and it speed up after that. Better app out there? This is really getting irritating...should i uninstall the ATK and let the phone manage memory and would that keep it lag free? I love this damn phone and the things I can be free to do now...just hate having stuff running that slows me down when I dont need it.

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.

HTC Desire :: Cant Stop Apps Running / Use Advanced Task Killer

Sep 25, 2010

Since I upgraded my Desire to Froyo I am having trouble closing the apps. I use 'advanced task killer' to kill the apps. But if I go back to the 'advanced task killer' few minutes after closing all the apps, I see all the apps are running again. And also I cant close the default music player with 'advanced task killer'.

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Running Applications / Advance Task Killer Free

Sep 27, 2010

OK, like most here I'm struggling a bit with battery life. Last night for example I was 100% charged when I went to sleep, woke up to the phone at 72%. So yeah, nearly 30% battery lost simply sitting there doing nothing.So, I have just now killed off the DRM service and media hub in running services in hopes that my issue is what others have experienced.

However... I routinely notice many other apps running in my task killer "Advance Task Killer Free". Just now for example I just shut everything down. I sent a text message to the wife, and now the following apps are once again running:

Voice Dialer
Media Hub
Amazon MP3

There are others that I actually want going, JuiceDefender, SysTray Monitor... but what is up with these above?? I am CONSTANTLY seeing them run. Is there a way to shut these down for good? Why are they starting up on their own? Does anyone know if this is a part of my battery issues?

Motorola Droid :: Advanced Task Killer Reports Numerous Apps Running I Don't Start?

Feb 24, 2010

I notice that when I open Advanced Task Killer I see all kinds of apps I never started up and ran, even if I kill them, the next time I open ATK, after the phone goes to sleep or I go off to something else and come back, there some of them are again.Alarm Clock - and this has an icon (red bell) next to it that is NOT the Alarm Clock apps icon (white face clock) that comes on the phone so kind of curious what the heck it is?Corporate Calendar never use this, never use an Exchange server, don't want it to run.

Android :: Task Killer Auto Killer

Jul 3, 2010

I want a task killer that automatically kills processes when they load. Some apps like HTC sense and the built in messanger app I would love having them killed instantly, is there one that i can get? Before you say, yes the Eris DOES need a task killer. Asked any eris user, once it gets below 30 MB of ram, it slows down to a near halt. They majority of thos for me is processes that load without me telling them too, and ons that I never use, such as htc sense or the default messager apps. I'm rooted btw.

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 :: Task Killer ICS?

Jan 28, 2012

I am a fairly seasoned root user, although I have a lot of research to do for ICS. I am running the IceColdSandwich ROM and thus far only one crash, to be expected! I have the CPU oc'd to roughly 1.76ghz with smooth results. my question is... are task killers, any to speak of, safe for ICS? I realise that a solid killer is built in but...always curious. all comments welcome and NICE to have ALL features working on my Inspire 4G with an ICS 4.0.3 ROM.

Android :: SystemPanel - Task Killer

Mar 1, 2010

(scroll down for screenshots)

I've written a new task manager / system information app called "SystemPanel". It displays a list of running applications, and allows you to view information about them, e.g., memory consumption, when they were started, how much CPU time they've used since start, and so on. It of course provides "task killing" capabilities; it can end individual apps, all apps, or groups of apps such as "inactive" or "background" apps.

It also provides meters to show you current CPU consumption, network use, memory use, and SD card use. A "system info" function is available from the menu that provides all the gory details about your phone, everything from your Wi-Fi router's mac address to your Android build number.

A word of warning....SystemPanel does NOT offer a capability to automatically kill tasks in order to "save battery life". I disagree with the idea that such a thing would offer an improvement. The Android OS does a fine job of this all by itself, and such a capability would only be helpful if an app were suffering from a bug (or poorly written), such that is consumed battery unnecssarily in a semi-dormant state. And in that case, killing it every few minutes isn't going to solve the problem...one needs to uninstall it or contact the developer. If you happen to know a technically sound reason why such a task killing strategy is beneficial with well written apps, please let me know, and I'll be happy to rethink this. If you do want such functionality, there are tons of other task killers that supposedly have this feature.

Android :: Task Killer - Benefit

Jul 6, 2010

Is a task killer really necessary? I haven't really noticed any benefit in using it. I am beginning to think it's like a Windows registry cleaner -- sounds good in theory, but pretty much useless with the ability to really screw things up, if you don't know what you're doing.
