    Question What is name of app that shows # of running apps in a little circle ?

    Hello here on the Forum. I just joined & this is my first post !

    My phone recently crashed (Note 3 ) & I had to get a replacement.
    Somehow my Kies backup didn't work properly & I had to manually reload most of my apps.
    I had one app that I really liked. It was very simplistic and easy to use.

    I wondered if anyone might have this app & inform me as to its name?

    It was on my home screen and had a little circle that displayed inside the circle the # of apps running.
    By touching the app, you could stop the number of apps displayed from running.

    I have the Battery Doctor app, but I liked other one I can't remember, better.
    Thanks for any help in advance !

    Hello, welcome to Android Central.

    If you installed that app via the play store, you can swipe to the right and select "My apps" and then the tab that says "All".

    You can see a list of apps you have previously installed. Can you find it there?

    Active Apps Manager. Long pressing the home button then closing the apps actually works better than the Active Apps Manager a lot of times. But for the AAM, long press on empty part of screen then select widgets. Should be right there.

    Thanks. I checked. Not there. Somehow I think it got installed as a secondary app when I downloaded something & it popped up and I then installed it. Then it didn't get backed up before the phone went bad. My bad.
