Whats up? I wanted to find this out once and for all. Im sick of reading conflicting opinions regarding task-managers on the Droid and Droid Eris. Well, while some people swear by them, others think they actually cause more harm than good! Can we get someone who actually knows to confirm which side is correct? I actually use two task managers. Task Panel and Advanced Task Manager. I use the auto-kill feature on Task Panel and it helps as does ATM. It seems that without killing certain apps that run in the background, my Eris starts to get a little sluggish. The screens dont switch as smooth, for example. Also, it can cause a slowdown when you're trying to send a message. BUT, am I causing more harm than good to my phone? Did google think about this and already plan for this? Did they intend of apps running in the background without being killed manually? Are we supposed to be screwing with these apps like this? Please, someone, anyone. Thanks, Mike.
