    Default Touch with Built in Task Manager

    Is it okay to remove all tasks via the built in S3 task manager?

    I've heard task managers can be dangerous. I'm also noticing my phone is much more laggy lately.

    Default Re: Touch with Built in Task Manager

    The built-in S3 Task manager seems to 'remove all' running apps & processes in the background. But I'm not sure if it dumps all the cache.
    I tried the app called 'History Eraser' (made by InfoLife, the same maker of Advanced Task Manager), but as with ATM, it's kinda hokey cuz it just seems to re-populate right away, and in fact it doesn't even show how much app cache (in MB or KB) that it's dumping, or about to dump, or should I say...erase. :rolleyes:

    At the built-in S3 Task manager > RAM manager, you can also 'Clear memory', which seems to help a bit.

    At Settings > Application manager > All . . .you can 'Clear cache' on individual apps. You can also 'Disable' some apps, but I don't think any disabling should be done until you have a: List of apps - that are safe to disable. Seems like I saw such a list, or thread topic perhaps, last week, but now can't find it. :-(
