Editors' review

Just because Android apps have no "close" button doesn't mean they shut down when you return to the home page or move on to another app. You calendar, note pad, and programs in which you turn on event notifications might periodically run in the background, depleting your battery. Download and run Advanced Task Killer Free. You'll be amazed at the apps that run on start-up without your knowledge. While you can kill the task killer along with other apps, we recommend letting it run so you can easily use it a couple times throughout the day. Being able to set conditions for killing running apps would be an interesting future touch.

    "No longer needed with Android if you are with 2.2+"

    October 07, 2011   |   By ketjr81

    Version: Advanced Task Killer 1.9.7B92

    Pros

    can see what apps are running

    Cons

    this is no longer needed to kill apps that are running, the newer Android roms already take care of that, even if an app is on it wont be doing anything.

    Summary

    If you are absolutely having problems with your battery, find an app manager, not a task killer. Something so you can find out which app is eating your battery up, instead of just killing all your apps all the time.

    "android runs apps for reason!"

    September 22, 2011   |   By pbtrik01

    Version: Advanced Task Killer 1.9.7B92

    Pros

    see what apps are running if you've got a poorly designed app that will eat up battery you can quickly uninstall it.

    Cons

    will kill your battery life/ phone in the long run

    Summary

    the android os turns on apps for a specific reason and will turn them back off when necessary, just because it is 'running' in the background doesn't mean it's eating up battery! google will never create an os that will destroy your battery life on purpose, your phone will open an app at a specific time for a myriad of reason (updating, alarms, reminders etc) and when it's done it'll will turn that app off again! if you are constantly killing an app that is trying to receive an important update the phone will continue to try to update as if it were fighting against Advanced Task Killer. in the long run apps will have to reopen so often trying to get an update in that it will put a strain on your battery....
