    ok im not into task killers, i know the score but is there a ONE TOUCH widget that can be set to force stop one specific app of your choice (like a buggy app that needs a good force close sometimes or a torrent app, if u use that kinda thing, to stop it from seeding ur files in the background)?

    On the S III if you long press on the home button it will open up a task manager that will let you manage running background apps.

    Hope this helps...

    You can go to the application manager and choose the app. There should be a force stop button. Not sure how often you have to kill the tasks.

    Yes there is w widget.

    Go to Samsung Apps and then download the widget called "Application Monitor". A great widget that will save your physical home key from few clicks. It is free for all Samsung phones.

    Hey! Not so fast! I was lookin' for that app a few weeks ago, in the Samsung app store, but couldn't find it. Every time I typed 'application monitor widget' in the search bar only a bunch of battery widgets & other apps kept listing-up. :rolleyes:

    How'd you find it, funky? . . . and btw, funk, your 'messy page' gives me a migraine. :rolleyes:

    Thanks mss-ca! Can you link the google play install page?

    What'ya trying to do? Kill yourself? Of train for some Special Geek (Black Ops) Operation?
    Nighty night, funky. Sleep tight. . . . (wonder where that saying came from?)

    Yeah, I don't have 'More services' in my app drawer, dang it. Anyone know how to get it, if you don't have 'More services'?

    You can create a Samsung customer account online(even though I didn't have to do that) and link your phone to that account using Kies. Then you can load the apps I think... can anyone confirm this?
