    Prob the ONLY issue I have encountered with the ICS build, is the fact that they removed the built in task manager that had the auto-kill list! Loved that feature on GB and it worked VERY well...why would they dump it?!

    I noticed the option we now have, (disableing bloat) which is nice and the option we have under Developer Options called "Don't Keep Activities".... but it doesn't give you the option to keep certian apps or programs OFF the "don't keep activities" list, which doesn't play well with my custom launcher.

    The only thing I can thank of is there is that button on the nexus that pulls up all running apps, u just slide them to the right n that list and everything is dead. And from owning a nexus and going back to a bionic I've had a gd taste of ICS. Also I thank ICS also works better on keeping stuff closed and managing stuff on its own alot better.

    It caches apps automatically and does a good job

    Long press the home button, and swipe left or right on any apps you wanna kill.. it works well.

    Looked under the running apps and didn't see the option to pick what apps you want to run and those you want to auto kill when phone sits idle for say 2-5 min like the built in the last GB had...

    And the long press on home did bring up a list of apps that I can slide left or right...but what exactly is this doing?! It didn't explain what left or right was doing...

    Long pressing home is just recent activity. No need to autokill with ics it does fine. Check out my smart actions thread.

    Using the recent apps panel also will kill the apps. As far as apps that aren't shown, yes, ics does a good job of managing those.

    I dont think the apps shown in recent apps are actually running and I dont think swiping them closes anything, just removes them from that list.
