Honorable Mention: Advanced Task Killer
There is some debate as to whether app process killers are helpful or harmful on the Android platform, but the consensus among Android users at CNET is that the ability to manage tasks is crucial to saving battery life. Hence, our honorable mention: Advanced Task Killer.
This simple app lets you view the tasks currently running on your phone--some in the background, and others more obvious--and select which ones you want to stop. You can also add a shortcut on your home screen that lets you kill all tasks with one click, a handy feature given that most apps don't fully close out until a while after you've exited them.
