    Not in Canada, this displeases me.
    My favourite task killer, Big Killer seems to be MIA on the android market place. Any idea what happened?

    Was probably doing more harm than other TKs, so it was pulled.

    As said previously...you don't need a task killer (that "auto" kills) on Android. Using a TK to "snipe" kill specific apps as needed is ok, but auto-kill is just setting you up for probs later on, as damage is cumulative over time, and often can't be fixed without factory reset...and sometimes not even then...at least that's what I've gleaned from reading various articles.

    With all respect, I don't see why I need to have a blue tooth file manager running since I never use it, along with other apps that run but don't need to be running.

    Define "run"

    In Android, if you see it on the list, it doesn't always mean it's running, it could mean it's cached. Cached programs are not "running". They're just sitting there waiting for you to use it. If you never use it, eventually Android will close it for you if it needs the memory that's being used by the cached program.

    In Android a FULL MEMORY is a GOOD THING. And MEMORY does NOT mean "running".
