Android Quick Tip: How To Effectively Manage & Close Apps


Sunday 20th of November 2011 / talkandroid.com
We all know the joys of true multitasking featured in the Android OS. The ability to have multiple apps open simultaneously is what we consider to be a must. This is particularly true in the age of dual-core (or soon-to-be quad-core) processors and 1GB+ RAM on a lot of high-end devices that are built to handle heavy workloads simultaneously, though older devices can handle their own when it comes to running multiple apps at the same time too. Android users must remember that while you should take advantage of being able to have multitasking and running several programs running at once, those programs will ultimately show your phone and even crash your device, no matter how high-end your phone might be. There’s a simple answer to keep the slowdown to a minimum and prevent your phone from crashing– using a task manager. Many of you are thinking, “great, no problem– I’ll download a third-party app to use now”. Well, not so fast young Jedi. Users should be aware that while you indeed can use a third-party task manager, they’re largely ineffective

Monday 11th of June 2012 / androidforum.com
When your phone cannot use WiFi, using data traffic may be the choice. Here I have some tips for saving your data roaming.Tip 1: Close the auto-syncYou can set it through settingsTip 2: Turn off the Mobile network when you don’ t need network.Tip 3: Close the apps that running on the backstage. Get some App that can do it. Usually I use Task Manager.Tip 4: Try to download Apps from your PC not your device. Of course, it is a exception if you have enough data traffic.For me, I always download APK file from PC, then I use a PC Manager to install the apps to my device. En, I am using Moborobo. You may also use AirDroid. Both are OK.

Task Killers... The Answer from Google & Developers.


Sunday 01st of August 2010 / droidforums.net
In response to the vast amount of questions regarding Task Killers, I find this to be a valuable article/video in making a determination in whether or not to use a task killer on 'auto-kill' or manually killing apps just because they're open. A task killer is meant to shut down unresponsive apps, not EVERYTHING open.Good explanation of how the Android OS is designed to handle applications.Make your decision from there PLEASE READ THIS!!! SystemPanel Documentation | android.nextapp.com (smalltowngirl13 posted @ DxF, but I wanted to put it here as well) *quick cut & paste from the link* from the developer who designed System Panel. " Please read this section FIRST. There are a great many misconceptions about how Android works with regard to starting and stopping applications.

Droid Eris - Name your Favorite/Least Favorite Apps/Widgets/


Tuesday 13th of October 2009 / everythingandroid.org
Thought this might be a helpful thread to continue to add to, especially for new Android users (like myself)Well, the favorites is a hard choice, as there here's what I've found so far that I can't live without anymore now that I've got 'em and have learned how to use them:Power Manager - Helps track battery level and power useage. Full version allows you to set up different configurations for screen brightness, wireless connnections (bluetooth, wifi, GPS) based on how much battery you have remaining. Very helpful for getting the most battery life out of your phone.TasKiller - A great task manager that allows you to "kill" running applications in one touch of a button. The free version allows you to ignor 2 apps. The full version allows as many ignores as you want.Ringdroid - Ringtone maker: Very easy and awesome!Liquor Run Mobile - Online liquor store finder and has mix drink ingredientsShazaam - Can identify almost any song by "listening" to itThere aren't many that come to mind that I don't like, but the ones I don't like or are annoying me right now are:Widget

Built-In Task Manager


Sunday 08th of August 2010 / androidforums.com
I was reading that programs like Task Killer and Advanced Task killer, while immediately freeing up memory and hopefully conserving battery, may actually cause your device to run slower and buggier than if you were to uninstall it sompletely.Of course, you're stopping a running task, so I could see how that might not be a good idea to constantly be doing. (and plenty of you know how addicting they can be!)To me the Android OS has many components to that of Windows 7 for PC (don't get me started on their OS). You have your (metaphorical) 'desktop' and 'icons', etc. Why not have a Task Manager built into the OS? It could be a standard app, a setting, a widget, anything! If the OS told the program to end properly, everything should still run smoothly.It's been so long using programs like these, you forget that this is, more appropriately, Android's problem. And once there's a system in place where you don't have to download more stuff to use less memory, the world will be a happier place.

How to save battery life with Android 1.6 on BH2 ?


Saturday 15th of May 2010 / androidforums.com
As I just got my phone with installed rom 1.6 for the Behold 2 , I am frustrating when the battery life drains so fast after last night . I was playing a bit with the WIFI , and the battery status bar was still less then half bar . After I woke up today , the battery has shown that the battery is less than 5% . I did turn off my wifi and using only 2g network to save battery life. I clicked on "why", it showed the Green Bar with the word Android System 95% . What does this mean , and how can I save more battery life since I don't use it the whole night . So the phone suppose to be less than half bar battery life at least. 1.Putting the phone in sleep can save battery life or not on the Behold II ? 2.What are some ways that can save the battery life on the Behold II ?3.Does the charging technique can at least save some part the of the battery life ? If so , How do I charge my Behold II ? Leaving it all drain out, turning off the phone and then charge it ? Here are some ways that I have read in androidforums1. use spare app2. use task manager I didn't try these two. Thank you

How much memory do you typically have free?


Sunday 06th of June 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
I'm new to android (nice forum, by the way) and so I'm not sure how efficiently these things run. I've downloaded some different task managers to try out and eventually I'll find one I like best. But no matter what I close I find it hard to have more that 150MB of free RAM - usually less than 100. On a 256MB device I'd say thats great. But on this beast I would hope for more. Now I find myself worried about what is running all the time. What kind of memory use is typical on the EVO running Sense? Is there any app which will put a memory monitor in the top bar so I don't have to open a task manager just to find out where the memory is at? Thanks
