App Timer Pro for Task and RAM Management

While for the most part using a task killer is a bad thing on Android, it can be beneficially to manually quit apps in a few rare cases of misbehaving apps. As such, task management has been a part of the Android world for quite some time.

The list of apps available to do this is quite extensive, but in many cases no one application can fill the needs of every user. XDA Recognized Developer Dread 7us, a contributor to the HTC EVO LTE overclocking kernel modules, aims to change this with App Timer Pro. It is full of features, including:

Kill any app at a time you choose with optional volume fade out.
Easily view which apps are active.
Monitors available memory.
Kill individual app process.
Uninstall app (send to the package manager).
Launch app.
Threshold monitoring and process killing.
Recurring processes killing.
Selected list (apps and processes to exclude).
Innovative help screens.
Backup and restore options.
Main list shows package name and other info.
Change category to show specific processes/apps.
Kill all option.
Widget that monitors available RAM and button to kill all.
Easy start and stop from the main menu.
Highly customizable settings.
Move to SD card enabled.
Hardware acceleration enabled for Android 3.0+.

Along with the typical task management features, App Timer Pro adds a lot of unique features not found very often. There’s also a lot of room for customization, and customization is never a bad thing. Those absolutely convinced that they need a task killer despite best practice may find this one worth looking into.

To get started, head over to the original thread.
