    There is no need to use a Task Killer and I am sure people will be along shortly to tell you why.

    I use advanced task killer and it works quite well, as for having one on your phone,it is a PERSONAL decision, and should be made by you and NO ONE ELSE!!! Hope you find something that works for you!!!

    Especially not Google developers or anyone else who has a technical understanding of how android works.

    I'm not going to get in a fight about it though.

    I fail to understand why people continue to disagree when the people who designed the OS state that one is not needed, especially with the new versions on Android (and ROMs based on them).

    It's the placebo effect that a TK has on a phone, like the battery calibration guide. It doesn't actually do anything but it gives the appearance that it does

    Ultimately, if you need to use a TK then you have an app on your phone incorrectly coded and you should be looking for that as opposed to hiding your head in the sand, so to speak

    Skype needs to have a service running to listen for requests, doesn't mean it's wasting your battery.
