    I love better cut, but I can't seem to find info on it anywhere. I'm looking to set up a shortcut that will open "advanced task manager", then activate the button that says "kill all selected apps". My goal is to be able to just click the shortcut and have all background apps stop running. I know that droid owners shouldnt worry about apps running in the background due to android's memory management, but I do notice that my phone seems to speed up when I kill apps (im running home++ as well). Not to mention my main concern is battery life over speed

    Advanced task manager has a widget of its own that "ends all". Just long press on home screen and select widgets and choose advanced task manager. It will say "Press to End".

    Hope this helps!

    Is it only the paid version that has this feature? I'm running the free one
