I have read a lot about the plus and minus' on task killers all over this site. I havn't used one since I bought my droid in november. I have always suffered from my phone lagging throughout the day, not quite as snappy as when I first restart it, so I decided to check out what apps were active. PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING! It shocked me. Just for the sake of trial and error I downloaded an auto task killer. I only selected programs that I never use, or only use once in a while. They are set to kill the app when it goes to sleep mode. The past two days the phone has been running faster and better than ever. Most of the apps are apps that I can't get rid of. Messaging, voice dialer, mp3 store, corporate calendar, etc. There are also other apps that I do use every once in a while so I don't want to delete them, but I certainly don't need them using up memory. Apps like shopsavvy, rom manager, radio time, movies. The apps I use every day, I do not kill! I know some people really don't like task killers, but I have to say that my phone runs better now. I now feel that there is a right and wrong way to use a tak killer. Not just a wrong way. I'd love to get some input from others though.
