Tap That App: Advanced task killer

1:24 /

It's the ultimate Android app and a must-have for managing all of your applications that are running in the background.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Okay, okay, okay, here. Here go you, Slinky. All right. Welcome to "Tap That App." I'm Brian Tong and this is the show where we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. And this week we're showing off a utility that you can't live without if you're an Android user. It's called Advanced Task Killer, and it's free, just the way we like it. Now, multi-tasking is one of the features Android has had from the start, but when it comes to managing those apps, that's where Advanced Task Killer comes in. Leave the green checkmark on the apps you want to kill, and when you're ready, kill them. This is will make a huge difference in the performance of your phone, because if you like multi-tasking but you have too many things running at once, you'll feel your phone slow down. Now, you can also jump into the settings to have the apps start up when you launch your phone, show up in the notifications bar for easy access, or trade an Ignore List for apps you always want to have running. So here's the breakdown. Advanced Task Killer is free. It helps you manage your open apps, and it's a must-have for any Android user. And there's a reason we have it on this show -- because every Android user should be tapping this app. That's it for this week. If you have any suggestions, send them to "Tap That App" at CNET.com. I'm Brian Tong, and we'll see you next week. Haaa.
