Task Control

Recent List and Kill Task.


Froyo Task Killer

Since Froyo, developers are not allowed to force close other apps, so this application only displays running apps and processes, when you click app that you want to force close, pre-installed Android task killer will open. Tap force stop to kill it.


Watchdog Task Manager Lite

Watch your phone’s apps, don’t kill them. Stop killing your apps randomly. Start monitoring them with Watchdog. You don’t need a task killer. But you do need a way to make sure a background app doesn’t lose control and eat up all your CPU. Watchdog monitors your apps and alerts when one loses control, allowing you to kill just that single app. Killing apps blindly can cause them to stop working as designed, and most app developers won’t even take a bug report from you if you are using a task killer!

From Android 2.2 on, the kill command works only on background apps, and they will likely restart immediately. Having lots of apps running doesn’t hurt your phone at all unless they are doing something. In fact, killing an app and having it immediately restart simply consumes your phones resources. If you just leave the apps running, they will start immediately when you want to go back to it.

So stop blindly killing all your apps; be smart by managing them instead. Good for all versions of Android.
