    Is this necessary for the X ? Does it even work ? Verizon wireless Rep told me to download it and set it to kill apps every 30 min to keep phone from over heating ?

    Not exactly, I recommend the application watchdog for monitoring/warning/killing applications that misbehave only.

    Light (free) version linked, I run the full version and it's light on resources and does the job.

    OK thanks. I called Verizon becuz I noticed after playing several videos, my X would be warm. That's when she recommended ATK app!

    All task killers kill are your battery. Uninstall. VZW reps (some of them) don't understand how the Android OS works. ATK is not necessary. Watchdog is great.

    Interesting comments here. I have had DX for 8 mos and ATK was the first app I installed. I NEVER have battery drain from ATK and my DX will go all day and only lose 20% battery with moderate use.

    I have it set to kill when screen turns off and auto restart when screen starts. Also set to "crazy" auto kill level. I also frequently pull down notification bar and kill all running apps (make sure you put needed apps in ignore list).

    I suspect that if you are having serious battery drain problems, there is something else going on. And I have found that anytime I use my DX consistently for a period of time (i.e., as you stated to "watch several videos" or play a game, my battery is warm.)

    DX rooted, unofficial GB 4.5.573
