Advanced Task Manager
QR Code Thumb

One of the first and most popular Task Managers. Use Advanced Task Manager to end applications, speed up phone, and save battery! 1) Tablet support with specific layouts for large screens 2) Charts and visuals to view system information 3) Terminate Apps via App Detail Page 4) Shows Battery, Memory, & device Info 5) Shortcuts to useful tools 6) SD Card Management (Move apps between phone and sd card. Requires you to be on Android 2.2 at least). 7) Bulk Uninstall 8) Press-to-End Shortcut (instead of widget). The press-to-end shortcut (accessible by long pressing home screen and choosing shortcut) replaces the widget. For Cliq users, your android version is not at least 1.6. It should not have been shown to you as an upgradeable version. This is a glitch via the Android Market since I require at least Android 1.6. This is why you guys are unable to download or install the application. The new interface requires Android 2.2. Recent changes: bug fixes for the force closing Content rating: Everyone... Read More

Default Advanced Task Manager: Best Task Manager on Android

Advanced Task Manager combines a task manager, application manager, and uninstaller in one sleek interface. It also has a home screen widget to kill all running applications with one press. I especially like the uninstaller feature which allows you to batch uninstall and gives you direct access to your applications without having to go through multiple menus. For .99 it's a real bargain. Sleek interface, home screen widget, and uninstaller make this a must have. I've used other task managers and uninstaller programs and this one by far is the best of the bunch. When you combine both functions into the same application together, you've got a real winner.

Don't waste time or money on a task killer. As has been stated many times, using a task killer is unnecessary and bad practice. Here's just one of many articles that have been written explaining why:

Read the post above yours. It's accurate. Task killers are a waste of time. Android phones are not windows phones, they don't need a task killer.

You actually use MORE battery with task killers. You do not understand how Android is designed to work. Basically, let Android handle things, it's very good at it. Use the forum search and you'll find a multitude of posts explaining all this.

Just received the new GS2 X or hercules and it comes with a task killer built in its called TASK MANAGER so why is this installed from factory if not needed?

It's there just in case a poorly coded app gets 'stuck' and doesn't close out automatically as it should. Very rare, you may never have it happen.

Just let Android handle closing apps for you. It does an excellent job.

I tried juice defender and kept getting kicked off the data network without knowing (the settings showed as connected but without a green check box). I knew I wasn't connected 'cause I couldn't connect to the market. Once I deleted it. I was back in business. I think you absolutely need something to kill the apps that keep running that you don't use - if you don't have a rooted phone and can't get rid of the bloatware.

Why use ANY task manager? Not needed, waste of battery.

How bout this.

I need and use Touchdown because it's the ONLY way for me to sync with Exchange. It has a Database compaction service that runs and really takes the juice out of my battery. Touchdown doesn't provide a way to disable it.

Any task manager uses less battery than the Touchdown service. And please don't try to solve my problem by suggesting other alternatives to Touchdown. I've been over every aspect of that and for my situation, there are no alternatives. So there really are some smart people out here who have some genuine need for a task manager.

And I'll bet there just might be a few other real needs out there as well. Too bad we don't all live in your tiny little world.

Touchdown sounds like a lousy app that fails to cache itself and run in the background properly. Android has a built-in task manager just for such poorly coded apps. But this is a rare case.

Most users will never need and should not use a task killer and there is plenty of info explaining why this is so. A waste of time and battery. Normally Android does a fine job of handling processes and memory management automatically.

Edit: Doesn't Touchdown have an option to run at set intervals instead of contstantly?
