I used to use task killers, but all too often I found that they would interrupt some of my apps that i wanted running and causing FCs on various other things, even after adding them to my exclude list. So I don't know. I do think that it made my phone run a bit smoother, but it wasn't worth the instability
This is how it's worked for ME.

I have just uninstalled Apollo Task Killer. I had gone to this after bailing on Advanced Task Killer. I am sure that I will have some withdrawal symptoms for a couple of days but after the whole effect wears off, I am sure I will be okay. I can tell you that immediately after I uninstalled, the screen switching looked zippier right away. Placebo effect? Maybe but thinking this could be the real deal. I'll report back on battery usage but suspect it will only get better.
i have had two motorola droid phones, one which i used the advanced task killer, and my new one which i dont. my new one performs much better. as long as you dont have 30 apps open at one time you will be fine. they task killers only create problems in the end, as the droid itself naturally kills apps on its own. for the time/battery you waste killing apps, it is better off leaving your phone off. this is just my own experience. i dont use any task killer apps, i think they are all a bunch of junk you dont need.
