Hey guys I have a few apps that sometimes misbehave, yet I still need them unfortunately. This means that when they crash/stall I need to force close them. This can be done by going to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Running-tab > clicking the app causing the problem and selecting "force close".

I'm looking for a quicker way to do this. Perhaps a shortcut directly to the aforementioned "running-tab"?

Thanks

Hold down on screen and a window will pop up.. Select "Shortcut" and settings and whichever you wish for either running services or manage apps.

That is how you place widgets as well.

I use a task killer to kill whatever app is not responding. That is all I use it for.

Yep, hence me feeling so stupid! I've been through the widget menu many MANY times, but for whatever reason, I've never even ventured into the shortcut menu lol

I appreciate the tip but I think the shortcut way is going to be far more efficient. It's fast, easy and it doesn't require installing another program (especially one that probably runs almost constantly like most task killers enjoy doing).
