    Ever have your phone get warm in your pocket, only to find out the battery is almost dead and it's only 10am? One possible reason this can happen is if an app went rogue and consumed CPU unbounded.

    Task killers kill randomly and ruthlessly. If you've used one, you know all about having to exclude apps so it doesn't kill an important one.

    Watchdog eliminates this problem. It actually watches the CPU usage numbers, and ALERTS you when one goes bad, letting you target kill it and it alone. No need to wipe out the innocent apps. Leaving apps running if they're well behaved and letting Android perform the killing will help your overall phone experience as well.

    The full version allows you to specify a CPU limit threshold on problem apps, where Watchdog will kill single apps if/when they exceed a kill threshold, handy for buggy apps that you can't live without.

    Finally, here is an excerpt from the Android blog. Info straight from the horse's mouth.
