    Task Killer Fix

    This would be a mute issue if devs were required to included an "Exit" option on all their applications...

    Newbie here. I'm trying to understand all of this and am having a hard time. I understand having a program open if its one that you use. If its one that you never use it doesn't help you ANY to have it "ready to go". If this were the true reason and the Droid was "smart", I would never find vznavigator open. I would never find dlna open. The software would know ive never opened them and I would never find them open. The fact that the software will terminate any program that isn't in use to free up memory if it needs only makes sense if its a program you use. This in and of itself will use memory and battery no matter how miniscule. Also if this becomes the case every time you want to open an app (eventually it will) you will be closing and opening a program every time you want to open one, rather than just opening one. That makes no sense whatsoever. The only way this works is if the OS only allows programs to be open if there is enough memory to run any given program and allows you to uninstall the bloatware or at least not allow them to open. Otherwise the idea becomes self defeating when you're maxing out memory and storage (which I have no doubt some of you do) and it will become more apparent as the chip degrades and becomes slower over time.

    I see no 'search this thread' option in this DF app, but its a simple question:

    Will the ATK free "froyo" version work as intended on a DX running Gingerbread 2.3.3 &up?

    No because it hasn't really been needed since Eclair (2.1)

    I didn't say, 'as needed' I wrote "as intended".
    I didn't need a lecture, just an answer.
    I found it elsewhere: Yes, it works fine.

    I do believe you, in principle. But "there's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip." And many Android apps are poorly implemented.

    I find it suspicious that so many posters are so adamant that nobody else should use TKs. Why is it such a big deal to you if another person wants to waste their time unnecessarily zapping apps? Are you down on gamers, too, because they waste their time zapping imaginary aliens?

    Also, I use ATK, now that I have it, more out of a concern for security than because I expect it to impact daily battery use.

    That was rather rude considering all I did was give you an answer. Moving on...

    I'm not going to address the "lecture", however, the reason we intervene, is because there are many people, as it is, that complain about battery life. Without a task killer we can provide accurate information and troubleshooting when the member IS having an actual issue with the battery life, sans task killer.

    When you start to see all the issues they create you have to pass the info on. Android does not like a 3rd party application managing it. It's essentially like putting a pacemaker in a perfectly healthy individual. There's just some things you should not do :)

    You're not just passing on information; you're on a crusade.

    But, hey, gotta move on...
    I'm outta here.
