    Hi there :)

    I have Open Advanced Task Killer on my HTC Desire and wondered whether it was actually worth keeping.. I usually have quite a lot running most of the time it seems, and I thought perhaps killing some apps every once in a while if I'm not using them would save battery.

    But is it worth it and is there a better app for this out there if it's worth having one at all? Thanks everyone!

    one word: delete that piece of crap and let your phone do what it's meant to do.

    ^That's more than one word :p


    Agreed though, it's typically unneeded on these phones.

    For the bloatware that some companies put on the phone, yes.

    For people who install too much crap on their phone, no.

    For better battery, no.
