ArkSwitch v1.0.1: An Easy Task Manager
Posted January 22, 2010 at 07:51 pm by Noonski
With the coming of new Windows Mobile Builds that move the Start button to the bottom task-bar, the default HTC Task Manager becomes unusable.
User Arktronic decided to make a new Task Manager himself, to overcome these new compatibility problems. Not only does ArkSwitch offer a good finger friendly interface, it also gives you the possibility to get a little more information about applications memory usage and its whereabouts.
You can add your own exclusive programs to not show up in the Task Manager.

So I made my own!
VERY IMPORTANT! This application is NOT intended for the original WM6.5 or below. Only for WM6.5.1 and above! If you use it with WM6.5 or below, your device may become unstable.
This is version 1.0.1, a beta-quality release of ArkSwitch. To open it, simply click the left half of the top bar. The right half still has the normal WM6.5.x icon enlargement functionality.
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 red “X” to close it.
