    Ive been told by some that app killers are pointless, others swear by them. The few I have toyed with left me sceptical. FORUM...PLEASE HELP ME PUT AN END TO THE CONFUSION! Post favorite/best app killing programs and please cite your reasons. Thanks in advance, All.

    If the other threads haven't definitely answered this then how will this one? Same answer as always:

    If you're using properly coded apps you don't need an task killer. If you're stuck with using a problem app then you might find one useful but even then you don't need a task killer to kill apps. A task killer is just a duct tape solution. The problem is always a bad app and that should be addressed directly.

    Autokilling is an especially good way to kill your battery.

    Most of the former threads should indicate this.
