ArkSwitcH Task Manager for WM Updated

XDA member Arktronic presents an update to the famous ArkSwitch task manger preferred by many Chefs to include on their custom ROMs as it´s powerful and easy to use, but for those not having it included on their ROMs, you can download the stand alone application.
Updated version 1.2.0 adds quick killing of the foreground app by “scratching” the activation field, German translation and more registry tweaks, including one to disable the “Close All” confirmation. Also, the new version fixes the shortcut creation issue. Multi resolution devices are supported.

[APP][2010-09-04][v1.2.0] ArkSwitch: the task manager, upgraded!

There are many task managers floating around out there, with lots of neat features and great UIs. I’ve been looking for a good replacement for the HTC Task Manager home screen button that no longer works properly in Windows Mobile 6.5.x, and I’ve been unable to find one I really like. So I made my own!

ArkSwitch can be opened from any screen that has the top bar visible – I tried to make it simple yet unobtrusive.
You can click the text of an app to bring it to the foreground, click the icon to view the App Info screen, or click the “X” image to close it.

Please see the changelog in the second post.

I ASK FOR YOUR HELP:
If you are using ArkSwitch in your ROM, please post a message here telling me so. I would really like to know. Also, if you make themes, please post them here for everyone else to enjoy. I would appreciate that.

Also, if you’re a developer and would like to help with implementing any features, I’d be glad to accept your patches, changesets, etc.

You can find more information in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
