    Just my opinion , This Kind of task killers is not good as you kill the application then later the apps that you killed will run again , Why not use the Running applications method in settings as this one could also end some of backgroud apps .. I Tried this on my Samsung Galaxy Y but nothing happens after i leaved my phone then after they’re back again . Thus this will drain your battery or if you killed a system background it will make your phone unstable such as unknown or weired errors can happen with your phone

    Maybe you can try this.

    Just in my opinion, as the author of this application. Most of the task managers show what are not necessary.
    Program monitor has done the right thing to only monitor those that are potentially consuming battery and instead of having user controls what to kill, the program shows you what are necessary to kill and to those who are not savvy enough to decide, the application helps a lot. 🙂 Check it out.

    This is similar to the Program monitor for Android which stops the functioning of all the active apps that are running in the front and on the background.
