    After the latest update of home++ I have noticed bunch of apps running under advanced task killer that just runs for no reason.. I kill them and voila different set runs.. Reason I care? It slows the phone down.. any ideas?? Thanks

    I have no widgets running at all.. Apps are also beginning to crash.. I wonder if a reinstall will help

    Random apps.. Eg slacker, pdanet ( i have not even used it yet).

    I don't think Home++ has any control over whether those other apps are running in the background.

    I uninstalled Advanced Task Killer and phone runs fine now.....

    Home++ crashes with force close at least once a day...

    Anyone seen this issue? Not related to home++... You are in a phone call and it is next to to your ear and when you take it away, screen shows who you are talking to and you can hit dialpad.. but now.. it locks the screen.. it has started by itself.. Any ideas? Thanks for the help

    I switched to Home++ as well and it's crashed a few times today. "Force close". Haven't tried much besides power cycling the phone. Will remove advance task killer and clean out old Home when I have a moment.

    Get ready to lol, but, it started doing this after I peeled of the rear screen film. I'm sure that's not the cause, but it made me laugh.
