    I am still waiting on my DX (8/31) so often I just lurk on this site. I will be new to droid coming from an LG Dare. So what's wrong with using an appkiller?

    It is mixed opinion based on who you ask...the Android OS manages tasks and eliminates them as needed for memory use. Killing a task by an app killer will possibly only cause the app to restart - thus using battery, memory, etc. If you come across a rogue app, you can actually force close it thru the system settings without the use of a task killer. There are plenty of threads that discuss both sides - read thru them and make your own decision...

    Welcome to the forums!!!

    What is so wrong with app killers? Seems like a no brainer to want to use them.

    Why would you want to use it? And I am not asking that in a snide manner, just curious.

    I have SystemPanel installed on my X (some of the information in the first few posts of this thread was from the dev of SystemPanel's website)...I do not have a single app or process set to autokill - the Droid OS has the ability to manage it...however, if I notice an app that is not responding or seems to be hung up, I can then "end process" and restart it. There are some apps / processes that if you set to autokill when you turn your screen off, the task killer will stop but the apps/processes will restart. So what was the purpose of autokill...the OS will manage the memory and end processes as needed for additional memory by another process.

    It really is a personal preference, no one is going to blacklist you for using a task killer however it will probably be one of the first questions asked of you when you ask a question related to a problem with how the phone is running. Sometimes, trial and error is the best teacher - we have to see it for ourselves to believe it and that is fine...you may run a task killer for years and never see a problem or you may run it for a day and go "yep, that isn't right"...

    I realize now that I didn't understand how the app killers work and that there are already a lot of posts discussing the pros and cons. Thank you for your patience. I have much to read.
