Tweak Multitasking on HTC EVO 4G LTE and Possibly Others

Multitasking is a central component of the Android experience. You can open up an application, go open up five more, and go back to the first application right where you left it. Unfortunately, this process doesn’t always work the way you want or need it to. Sometimes it requires a little coercion from an outside source. This is exactly what it takes for HTC EVO 4G LTE owners.

XDA Senior Member Cloaker posted a thread on XDA linking users to an application called mcTweaker Root. After testing the application and some of its settings, Cloaker was able to get multitasking on the EVO LTE working as it should be. As explained:

You have to grant it root permission, go to memory, hit cynic killer, select On.

Hit back, save, restart if asked by the app.

The application is free in the Google Play Store, and given how easy it is to set up and use, this is quite convenient for those who want their multitasking tweaked. What’s more, since this application is available to everyone and has been shown to work on other devices, the tweaked parameters may solve issues on other devices as well.

For more information and the download link to the Play Store, check out the original thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
