I purchased Advanced Task Manager a while ago when it was useful on previous (pre-Froyo) versions of Android. Since it no longer works the way it did before and doesn't automatically kill tasks, is it safe to have installed? I get that task killers are bad, but since they don't work anymore, and Adv Task Mgr has updated to reflect this, can I run it for its other properties? I like that it can show what apps go on my SD card without a separate app, and it shows my free RAM so I can kill tasks with the built-in app manager manually. Any thoughts? I've not seen anything on this subject, except do not install a task manager...period. I think that this is moot with the new versions of task managers.
Yes you can still use all the other features. I've been running(and not particularly using) a task manager since I got my droid and still have it installed even though I don't use it as a task manager.
