    @ least Google including a task killer in its OS proves the notion you don't need one for android is a #myth.

    Pretty much, I'm pretty passionate about these TKs. They really improve the phones performance & a lot of people front on that, based on what's looking more like a myth. I actually never used one for months with this phone (cos I was of the opposite opinion) until curiosity killed the cat. Never looked back since. In this case the practical > theory.

    Sure seems that way doesn't it.

    I don't have any need for a task killer. I reckon it is far better to identify and remove any badly behaved applications in the first place. I use [battery history>partial wake usage] to establish that and then ditch them.

    Also we should not draw the long bow and imply, Google have included a Application Manager in 2.2 because Task Killing is routinely required. I can already kill/stop tasks in 2.1 with Application settings if I wanted to. But I don't.

    I can see a need for an Application Manager though. I could well use it to move apps between system and SD memory, or even to do something novel like to uninstall them.

    I wish you a long and passionate relationship with your TKs and I'll stick to using to apps that behave properly.

    You do know that Google consider you a Monkey for using a Task Killer dont you? :rofl3:

    I thought the same... till today. Today I had an app crash (RunKeeper), and I went in the the stock control panel and told it to kill the app... no matter what it would not kill it. I downloaded "Advanced Task Killer" from the market, and it killed the crashed app with out problems.

    I think I will keep this app around for now, though I told it to NOT start on power on...

    Why not install something more useful then? Like ASTRO file manager. Apart from its obvious utility for managing files is has an inbuilt Process manager for the odd occasion such as you mentioned. Half the people using ASTRO prob don't even know it has these Tools in it.
