    Advanced Task Killer

    I downloaded this app with the hopes of it being able to prolong my battery life,( on rooted D1).But every time i select the apps to kill, i click on the atk to see if they are indeed killed but then there are a bunch back on there. So i kill again, and check again and there they are, maybe not all of them but some of them, and in some cases different ones. i also check after i kill apps on the settings and running apps, and there are listed apps there running when i know i killed them in ATK....does this app no even work? is there an app that i should use that WILL work? please shed some light on this for me thank you!

    Also, if i do find a really good app killer, is it necessary to get an app for batter saver? arent they both the same thing anyways? i have been looking at those as well just dont know what to do here. thanks..

    1. app killer----which one should i get
    2. batter saver app....should i get one and run it with an app killler? or instead of an app killer
    3. thanks!

    Task killers are a no no. You don't need one. Android os covers it.

    Task killers are not needed on android os. Do yourself a favor and uninstall it and dont worry about it. If you google task killers for android you will see what i mean.

    Hey there.

    Well app killers use up your battery because android itself reloads apps into memory. Once it gets into the memory it actually doesn't use up any cpu cycles unless you open the app.

    You can keep it, just at least turn off auto-killing. Also stop ocd-killing apps manually. It took me a little bit to stop myself, too.

    I would recommend an app like startup auditor that let's you choose what apps you want android to autostart or start when it boots up, so only apps you use constantly get preloaded into memory.

    It will close them but the OS launches them again. That alone is all the proof of the two working against each other that one would need!

    You don't need to kill any tasks.... Let the OS do it's job and enjoy the device.

    Startup auditor doesn't appear to close tasks for me, it prevents them from running in the first place....

    And no, they are preloaded in the memory, but they aren't always running.
    Android has two different kins of "running" apps. Active and Background. The only way an app is Active, is if you open it and are currently using it, or you open it and press Home to get out of the App. If you press back, it "closes" but maintains it loaded into the RAM without actually using any CPU processes.

    Haha, wrong place to ask about a task killer, all of us frown upon it.

    Android doesn't need a task killer, it doesn't use memory for programs no longer in use. Your phone is meant to work without a task killer.
