    but I got a couple of question. I know task killers arent recommended but then..

    1. whats the best way to kill apps you see running unnecessarily in the background when you have exited them and know you dont want to use them?

    2. What is a good free antivirus to use?

    3. What version of swype should I install? Can someone point me to a link or name.

    4. Oh yea, how do I sync my apps back to my phone which are stored on googles servers with my email address. I was able to do this yesterday when I first set up my phone but after I rooted and rom'ed it , it didnt ask me to sync apps so I'm sure theres a way to bring them over manually?

    1. I just hate that I see stuff in the background I totally closed.

    2. Lookout was only trial when I tried it.

    3. No, I love swype or the equivalent lol, I want a recommendation.

    4. Can you recommend a rom, Im currently on Android Revolution HD.
    and theres gotta be a way to manually sync apps.

    Disable service and don't waste time with task killer unless it does not respond due to memory leak or bug.

    Thanks but I actually saw that and skimmed through it before I created this thread, but I didnt see a swype version name or link there, mostly how to sideload and since I'm rooted that isnt my issue. Unless I totally missed a swype link/name etc.
