    I also agree but this thread could be interesting so I'm really hoping that this doesn't turn into a heated Task Killer vs Non Task Killer argument like they usually do.

    agreed, I'm looking for info as well on bad apps

    I'll throw a few out there...

    there is nothing harmful or malicious (spelling? sorry) -- however, I'm not a big fan of a lot of the home replacement apps. I've had bad luck with Panda, dxhome, and Helix -- they cause system slowdowns and lots of force closes.

    I HAVE had success with LauncherPro. I also tried adw and no love there.

    so.... try to be happy with the stock home launcher to avoid getting hooked oin the launcher apps and settling for decreased speed. (just my 2 cents)

    But ADW is awesome



    Bad apps?
    Fouresquare and all the other apps that tell the creepers where you're at.
    All the ****ty porn apps that don't do anything.
    All the stupid soundboards
    The "broken screen" apps
    The apps that turn your screen into a flashlight (We do have a flash on on our cameras!)
    The million TERRIBLE games.
