Confused Mobo Task Killer OR Advanced Task Killer ?

I have had the "Advanced Task Killer" installed on my Motorola Defy since I first got it about 6 months ago.

The other day I installed "Mobo Task Killer" which seems pretty good but I wondered if I have to keep both Apps running or should I remove one or the other ? Any advice out there, please ?

Task killers are a waste, some apps will relaunch themselves anyway, uses too much battery. Use the back key or just leave the app & android will stop it after a while, provided it's not needed / not in use.

You could use a cache cleaning app instead.

I'm trying to figure that out as well, but as you can guess I'm still gettin' no where. although I've found aCCleaner Pro v1.20 but I have no idea how to use this.

Can't really 'recommend' as I only used one, lol,

I use Cache Cleaner NG, I think there's others but this one does OK. You can set it to clean certain apps or use global setting (home screen widget), or you can set a schedule for auto.

I swear I've had less problems with apps, like I used to get trouble with the music player, since running this.

Sorry about my harsh response, task killers are OK if configured properly but I find them a burden, especially when adding new apps & having to add or exclude them from the task kliller manually. I read they're not really needed in Froyo upwards.

Can't you use the built in task manager? It is there under task manager in the FroYo update.
