    I am new to the Droid world. I switched from Blackberry and now I got a Droid X. I read a couple of posts on how to make the battery last longer I use Advanced Task Killer. I read that people used it and deleted it. Can anyone tell me why that is?

    Welcome to the forum...and sure I can enlighten you a little bit

    The Android Operating System has a very efficient Task Management system built in and any third party app that claims to do the same thing is going to work against the native Android O/S Task Manager and cause confusion which can potentially slow down your device

    Uninstall it, it is not needed

    That too, they use unnecessary amounts of battery to do something that the system does efficiently already
