Task Manager (Task Killer) review Review
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I mean in 2010 or so, task managers were a big deal. You couldn’t find a lot of ways to deal with apps, and if you opened one, it remained open until you used a task manager.
After the stock Android task manager appeared, such apps have fallen into the background. However there are still many users who prefer third party task managers, and the app I'm reviewing is one of the worthy options.
The app has a functional Context Menu helping you to perform different actions with the apps installed on your device, such as:
- kill a task;
- switch to a current task;
- start a new one;
- move a task to ignore list;
- enable or disable the auto-kill function;
- look for an app in Google Play;
- uninstall an app;
- force stop.
There are 2 methods of killing the tasks. For a single kill, select one task item, and choose “kill” in the context menu. For multiple kills, tap the check box behind every task to select or unselect it. After that, tap “Kill Select Apps” on the main screen to kill them all.
Task Manager (Task Killer) has a simple user interface and pretty design. The default background is gray which makes the text easily readable. You won’t find any incomprehensible buttons and menus.
Task Manager offers you a cute widget to view the memory usage, fast kill task or launch the app after you tap on the widget.
The app itself contains the full list of running apps on the main screen. You’ll see the current available memory status within the title bar. Task Manager refreshes this information as soon as the task list changes. Tap “Refresh” to do that manually.
This app is one-stop task manager. Using it, you will be able to examine and kill one, several, and all the tasks, speed up your smartphone or tablet and save the battery. You can auto-kill processes after the screen turns off, and killing them means more free memory.
The 1*1 widget will check the memory usage, fast kill task or launch the app after a tap. It’s easy to force stop a process for rooted devices directly.
Task Manager is highly customizable. You will be able to turn the notifications on or off, sort tasks by name, and ignore the preferred app when kill.
Cross-platform use 4/5
The app is available for Android users only. Its compatibility varies with device. However, you can install Task Manager on most Android smartphones and tablets.
The ads pop up here and there provoking you to uninstall Task Manager as soon as possible. But wait. If you need such an app, you can buy an ad-free version to support the work of the developers. Just tap “Remove Ad” in the settings page to install such a version from Google play.
You will be able to launch Task Manager without ads from all your devices using the same Google account. Make this purchase once to get rid of the ads forever.
Android apps have don’t shut down when you go to the home page or start using another app. Your calendar, camera, and other programs may run in the background, depleting your battery. That’s when Task Manager comes for help.
Though this app won’t impress you with innovative features, it is reliable and works well. You can use it to kill apps and boost memory. If you kill some apps consuming your battery or CPU, you might notice it speeds up your device and saves the battery. Task Manager is functional and highly customizable.
Though the free version of the app is full of ads, it performs its functions well. Task Manager kills the unwanted apps at a click and prolongs your battery life so that you get more out of your device.

Easy to control;

It's not necessary after stock Android task manager appeared.
