    No, not damage to the phone - when you agressively end tasks, you are just causing the OS to work harder (restart apps it might need) thus using more battery life...You can keep the ATK installed and just use it when you have an app that is not responding..

    I wonder how many people read this thread and got the vibe that ATK is bad for their phone?

    I use ATK everyday, but I use it correctly. The problems with ATK which people talk about in this thread are not an issue on my phone.

    For example, after I turn on my phone, ATK will not even show any open, available processes which it can kill.

    The problem with using ATK incorrectly is that when a user opens it up, they will see all kinds of open processes, they will kill them, go about their merry business, and finally reopen ATK later on only to find all those same processes they had just previously killed open again. The apps automatically opened up all over again by themselves! If a user doesn't know how to stop all this automatic reopening of the apps, YES, ATK will just end up causing ur battery to drain faster.

    ATK will not cause any instability problems on your phone unless you leave it running 24/7. This is the #2 mistake people make when using ATK. Never let ATK run 24/7. Leave the ATK icon on your main homescreen. When you want to close your apps, it will only take 2 seconds to then do so.

    It really is a shame that the people who don't know how to use ATK the right way are wronvfully giving the program a had rap. It can be the best app on your phone if you let it be

    We know how to use it, Just find it an un-necessary app.

    Yeah...it's mainly a bunch of parrots repeating what they read. I've seen this on the internet since 28k dial-up.

    ATK's won't hurt anything if you kill it off when you kill off a couple of rogue apps. I admit if you run them 24/7 iy could be negative.That goes for any app though.

    I guarantee that the two moderators above me have not a single bit of hands-on experience with running ATK the correct way.

    It is a shame too. Many people would have MUCH BETTER Android experiences if the right information made its rounds.

    This is how I roll... lol

    Four hours to 20%? Turn your brightness down. That's not exactly a resounding advertisement for ATK. If anything, it confirms the posts that are chicken-littling it.

    But more importantly, what battery app is that????!!!!

    ETA: I get it now, which theme is that?

    lol

    The screen using up 78% of the power is a PERFECT testament to the utility of Autostarts and ATK used together.

    Screen brightness is not an application that can be killed lol rofl lol

    Oh boy...


    That is using my phone nonstop for that amount of time with the screen on full brightness. I wouldn't have it any other way
