    In looking for a barebones, effective app to reduce memory consumption, I came across the unassumingly-named System Manager. There is really nothing new or special here, apart from a rather nicely-styled gui. The app gives you the option to add running apps and processes to a "kill list" or a "white list" and allows you to kill the selected processes with one button press. The best feature of this app is how simple it is to kill processes and also see stats such as the phone's memory/cpu usage. This is also the app's downfall - it doesn't really do anything that many other apps also do, and there truly is nothing new here. There is also no auto-kill option, although that seems to cause problems for some people anyway.

    So it all comes down to personal preference and whether or not you like the ui of the app. As for me, I give it 4* for doing what its supposed to, but I don't know whether or not it will stay on my phone, as I can probably find better if I tried.
