    Do not use any task killer on these phones. As for essential apps, droidforums of course! ;)

    I've heard not to use task killer on these phones, however I have ATK.... is it b/c they have one built in? And do you notice a difference with/without one?

    It is because task killers do more harm than good. Android memory management takes care of that by itself. Am I right guys?

    I've been an Android user since December 2009 and I haven't used a task killer since January 2010 (almost two years) and both of the Android devices I've owned have worked perfectly without one.

    10-4.... I guess I just bought into the idea that they're killing unused background apps, freeing up my ram... :)

    Just make sure you back out of an app you're done with. That'll close it.

    +1 Don't use Task Killers...

    GoSMS is pretty good too. Just started using it and loving it. Used to use Handscent.

    exactly what the name implies. LOL
    when you end a call, instead of the phone going to the dialer it makes it so the phone goes to the HOME screen... wonderful app!

    There are built in ways to kill apps and you don't want any program other than the built-in ones doing so.

    Unfortunately both Facebook and Skype run at startup and also run even after you have exited these apps. You have to go to settings>applications>running services tap for each app and "force stop" them. Every time.
