    for the most part, whenever i run an app, i close it, then immediately open advanced task killer and shut it down to spare some memory. am i missing something? i have a lot of apps to entertain my son in a pinch (14 months old) like bubbles and a block puzzle game and a couple videos etc... and if any of them are running in the background, the phone gets pretty sluggish. (i am running galaxhero 1.1)

    is there any better way?

    taskiller widget kills all nonignored apps.

    btw i noticed that app continues using cpu if you exit via home button instead back button.

    Your best option is to ignore these task killer apps. I used to use the widget to kill all apps routinely before locking my phone again. I've not bothered using it for a long time now.

    Have I seen any difference in phone usage speed or battery life? Not that I can see. They're just not needed.
