example of a normal question,
"do you have any opinions on how running this program is making your phone faster? i don't get how it's working when apps in the background are not pulling any cpu's"
example of a condescending question, "Im just curious how an app that is in the background pulling no cpu's is magically making your phone slower?"
at the end of the day it doesn't matter the reason when the end result is what it is. why don't you try it and see if it helps. that's the only true way to know the answer to the question. and keep in mind this is not a true auto killer, just a memory tweak. i'm not ending all my processes.

This is the kind of answer i was looking for. I write a question how i see it and it was not meant in anyway to offend anyone. I used the word magically as a tangible and not a slap in the face.
I use system panel to monitor my phone and in doing so i see no background apps using cpu therefor i see no need to kill an app.
I'm not saying your wrong or i'm right, i'm simply saying i dont understand how it helps
The only way to know if you've set up an automated task killer that beats what Google's engineers have already implemented in Android is to EXPERIMENT. Try it with and without the task killer. Which way makes the battery last longer? Which way makes the phone perform faster? Which way causes fewer headaches?
A lot of times a task killer will drain the battery, slow things down, and cause headaches. People are installing these things and actually hurting their performance and battery life. They're sitting there pressing a task killing widget 20 times a day for no good reason. Is it really worth it? Try it with and without the task killers.
For most users: it's not worth it. Uninstall it. Relax. Android's got you covered.
For advanced users: keep tweaking, keep experimenting.
To both: DRRROOOOOIIID
The person is just curious. You assumed (incorrectly).
They don't have to ask questions in the manner you expect them to be asked.
Try it out for yourself, and do a search on this app once
you've downloaded it. It isn't an app designed from the ground up
like other apps may have been...and it doesn't function on its own.
This app allows the end user to fine tune Android's already impeccable
linux based app/process/service management system.
I've yet to experience a "redraw" with the knowledge I've recently

I'm not sure you know the difference between say "Autokiller" and
a task killer. They are two different things entirely.
One potentially disrupts protocols that shouldn't be touched...
and the other actually fine tunes the preexisting task managing
system native to Android OS.
I honestly have no clue what you're getting at. Are you trying to argue or something? I was just telling people to experiment and see what's best.
By the way, if you want to get in a pissing contest--because it seems you do--I've been a software dev for over 10 years and went to Stanford, so let's get it on.
