Here’s something quite useful for any sort of Android you might have. I have it hard to believe anyone has any older version than Android 2.1, but if you do, you won’t have it already integrated on your phone.
When your PC freezes and starts acting up, you usually do the old Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Esc to solve the problem. Well Android is no different. Except it’s built on Linux and the PC is running Windows. So if your Android device starts acting up really badly, just hold the HOME button and click on Task Manager to go do some fixing, the old fashioned way.
Most of them are structured on certain Tabs through which you have an easier time using it. If you really want to save up some battery life click on the RAM tab and choose to end all apps that are using any RAM memory.
Still, if you must try, you can find all sorts of Task Managers on the Android Market. I can’t vouch for any of them since all of the free ones I have tried tended to beat around the bush and be completely off when it comes to simplicity and practicality. That’s why I chose to keep with the normal, already included task manager since it tends to do everything all the others do and it does it more efficiently, more user-friendly and is easier to user.
So if you must, just search the Android Market for Task Manager and try your luck with whatever you find. I’m sticking with the basic one.
