    Advanced Task Killer - Battery life

    Hi, i'm still trying to figure out things on my phone.
    I have the Advanced Task Killer installed, and have read somewhere that to extend battery life you should periodically "Kill Selected apps"....which usually lists quite a few. Is it okay to just hit 'yes' to all, or do I have to figure out which ones to apply it to? (that would be a nightmare).



    Thanks!

    I really advise against using task killers on Android phones. Killing the occasional problematic app is fine, but getting in the habit of killing apps to free up memory (ESPECIALLY autokill) is bad practice and can actually shorten your battery life. A lot of apps are set to automatically reload into memory when certain conditions are met and the whole process of killing > reloading > killing > reloading >etc. will drain your battery faster. Android is designed to clear memory when needed, you don't have to and shouldn't clear it yourself.

    The best thing I can recommend for a non-rooted phone is JuiceDefender. It shuts down your radios when you're not using them, and it makes a world of a difference. Here is my short review on it: http://www.sprintdroids.com/forum/sp...-solution.html
