    If you're going to post, be productive.

    Coming into this thread just to be a pain will get you no where, unless you're looking for a vacation :)

    i've never used auto killer apps before. if i've ever had a problem with an app messing with my phone i've gone one by one to figure out what's going on. HOWEVER, i have started using the autokiller app on the market that changes the os's memory management. my phone has NEVER run better. nothing drives me crazier than launcher re-draws. i have had ZERO redraws since i started using it. god himself can write a blog and tell me to stop using it and i'd refuse. doubled my satisfaction with my x.

    Im just curious how an app that is in the background pulling no cpu's is magically making your phone slower?

    i'm guessing when it runs out of memory it is closing the launcher. now with autokiller adjusting the memory settings i haven't had that problem to answer your condescending question.

    example of a normal question,
    "do you have any opinions on how running this program is making your phone faster? i don't get how it's working when apps in the background are not pulling any cpu's"
    example of a condescending question, "Im just curious how an app that is in the background pulling no cpu's is magically making your phone slower?"

    at the end of the day it doesn't matter the reason when the end result is what it is. why don't you try it and see if it helps. that's the only true way to know the answer to the question. and keep in mind this is not a true auto killer, just a memory tweak. i'm not ending all my processes.

    " and keep in mind this is not a true auto killer, just a memory tweak. i'm not ending all my processes".[/QUOTE]

    This is the kind of answer i was looking for. I write a question how i see it and it was not meant in anyway to offend anyone. I used the word magically as a tangible and not a slap in the face.

    I use system panel to monitor my phone and in doing so i see no background apps using cpu therefor i see no need to kill an app.

    I'm not saying your wrong or i'm right, i'm simply saying i dont understand how it helps

    The only way to know if you've set up an automated task killer that beats what Google's engineers have already implemented in Android is to EXPERIMENT. Try it with and without the task killer. Which way makes the battery last longer? Which way makes the phone perform faster? Which way causes fewer headaches?

    A lot of times a task killer will drain the battery, slow things down, and cause headaches. People are installing these things and actually hurting their performance and battery life. They're sitting there pressing a task killing widget 20 times a day for no good reason. Is it really worth it? Try it with and without the task killers.

    For most users: it's not worth it. Uninstall it. Relax. Android's got you covered.

    For advanced users: keep tweaking, keep experimenting.

    To both: DRRROOOOOIIID

    Why take offense to a comment that isn't directed at you?
    The person is just curious. You assumed (incorrectly).
    They don't have to ask questions in the manner you expect them to be asked.


    Try it out for yourself, and do a search on this app once
    you've downloaded it. It isn't an app designed from the ground up
    like other apps may have been...and it doesn't function on its own.

    This app allows the end user to fine tune Android's already impeccable
    linux based app/process/service management system.

    I've yet to experience a "redraw" with the knowledge I've recently
    discovered.

    I'm not sure you know the difference between say "Autokiller" and
    a task killer. They are two different things entirely.

    One potentially disrupts protocols that shouldn't be touched...
    and the other actually fine tunes the preexisting task managing
    system native to Android OS.

    You're right, I don't know what Autokiller is. I've never used it. What part of what I wrote gave me away?
