    I have been using tasks killers and have been advised not to. My phone will become slow and at times not respond. This seems to happen when I use youtube and facebook a lot. Here is a list of the. Applications I use. Here is a list of my apps. Live wallpaper: aquarium donation snow fall star light live thunder strom. Apps: beautiful widgets droid forums facebook farm frenzy reckless racer robo defense jewellust mini squad net flux queue tv.com.

    That's it.
    Can u guys see any problem apps? Thanks

    Well, its one thing to use a task killer to shut down unresponsive applications but, most who install them will use an auto kill setting which is no mo good! As far as the apps go, I have a few of those as well with no issues. Are you using the back button or home button to exit them?

    I use the back button. I do not kill all apps just facebook youtube and any program that becomes unresponsive. Thanks for the reply.

    The back button vs. Home button is a very good point. None of those apps really raise any flags for me but you can prevent having to kill tasks by properly exiting out of them.

    Yes the back key is the right way to exit an app when you're done with it

    Well the os will eventually kill them if you don't but its a good idea if you're donee with an app to use the back key to exit out of it. My way of doing things is I only hit the home key from an app if I am not done with it and want to quickly check/do something else and then return to the app.

    Very true! The thing with the home button is that the application will be left open and running in the background until its manually force stopped or the phone is power cycled - killing your battery and hindering performance! When the back button is used, the app will remain open but no longer running. After x amount of time of not being used or another application needs the resources, the OS will shut it down.

    Yes sir! I also recommend turning the phone off then back on (power cycle) once or twice a day and letting the battery go from completely dead to completely charged (no interruptions) once a week.

    Also a good idea, but yeah knowing how to properly interact with the closing of apps usually aleviates the need for a task killer and will do wonders for the phones performance.

    Why do you say that? I don't like power cycling as my buttons don't light up after the reboot, plus it takes forever

    If your backlight doesn't come on after reboot just cycle through the backlight options on the power control widget, that will bring them back to life. As for power cycling and reboots, think of the phone as a handheld pc, it needs to be restarted regularly to perform properly. The power cycle isn't quite as important but its good for getting accurate measurements from the battery.
