    I'm a new Droid Eris user and I am constantly having to kill my apps in order to free up memory to keep my lag time and speed adequate. Will I continue to have to do this throughout the life of my phone? Why if I kill the Apps with Advanced Task Killer do the apps keep activating? I seem to have to do this every 30 minutes or so to stay at an approximate 40Mb.

    Thanks. I just want a speedy phone and can't afford the Incredible. Plus it's sold out here in NJ.

    STOP USING A TASK KILLER.
    Your phone will thank you in a day.

    You think your phone is working better my killing apps, well it's not. It's not saving battery life or making your phone faster, instead it's making it worse.

    If there is one thing you need to do, stop using task killers.

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    Its not a debate. You simply dont need one. If you know anything about the Android OS, you'd know that it manages tasks, quite well, on its own.

    Uninstall your task killer. Give your phone a day to "sort things out", and you'll be good to go.

    Promise.

    Right hand to gawd.

    No task killer here...eris is fast and smooth. Uninstalled all apps that were slowing down my phone, use Quick App Clean Cache app to clear caches (not rooted).

    I removed my task killer a week ago, and this is the best my phone has ever ran. Battery lasts all day, and on the advice of OTD, got rid of the HTC battery widget. Got a app called Juicedefender, and I think it has helped. My 2 cents are tossed in.

    I kicked my task killer habit thanks to this forum. I probably burned more battery constantly killing apps than the apps themselves did.

    I really don't know why people get so worked up about task killers. I am new to Android but don't like to consider myself an idiot when it comes to it. Although I am not sure if the task killers hurt or harm. I do know that I have tried with and without, and my phone runs faster and more smoothly when I use it to clear out all the running programs I'm not using. Now that being said why don't you let people make their own decision based on their experience rather than someone telling them it's bad or not. What works for someone else may not be ideal for you and vice versa. I think that some people on this forum are way to pushy with their opinion. You should try a task killer; if it doesn't work for you or do what its supposed to do then uninstall it like you would any other app. Just my $.02.
