    From what I can gather on the Android operating system is that it's unnecessary to run a task killer because the OS will prioritize what applications need to be running to suit your needs/experience at that particular moment and kill all others.

    Furthermore the operating system will use the remaining phone memory as "swap memory" when RAM becomes scarce.

    If this is true, could moving all your apps to the sd card effectively double your available "RAM"???

    If not, would it be possible to implement this into a custom rom (bugless perhaps)???

    Essentially all your apps would run from your sd card and if possible the entire OS.

    I probably don't know what I'm talking about but I was curious.

    I've had a couple old win mobile phones before and when you open the task manager you see apps you didn't use be opened as well. I guess this comes with the ability to multi-task.

    I was like you before mad that there were a bunch of apps opened that I hadn't used. Then I uninstalled my task killer and noticed that there is no change in performance at all, as a matter of fact it made experience on the phone better because apps wouldn't have to reload all the time.

    I'm more concerned about the later part of this post though as far as being able to take advantage of the remaining available resources if you moved all your apps and even the OS (if possible) to the SD card completely.

    I just wish they would get the point that I don't want to use their damn Amazon MP3 application. Ever.

    Subscribing. I see this thread has kind-of been paused, but I'd like to know if there is indeed an increase in performance with Apps2SD...

    had this posted for awhile now with no responses to my original question...

    I think it can be done but I doubt anyone is seriously pursuing what I proposed.

    Yea...I noticed. With the problems I read some were having, I'm not sure there's a benefit to using this feature?

    Umm, the speed of the onboard RAM is WAY faster than the crappy SD card. No way would I want to run the OS off there.
