Android Apps - 08 - Go Launcher Widgets - Task Manager

2638 ratings | 1996074 views
The developers of Go Launcher EX have developed widgets to go along with it. Task Manager allows for apps to be killed from your home screen. NOTE, not all apps can be killed unless you have a rooted phone, and even then, depending on how you have your phone setup, some apps will run all the time. Don't get carried away killing apps or your battery will take a hit!

Go Launcher is an extremely awesome android application. It helps you to change the outlook of your android home screen. The task manager is the must have widget of Go launcher. It helps you to free up some space as well.

Originally found your 1st GO Launcher EX video & that led to my avid use of all things GO except for Prime! I got into trouble with lockscreen that I didn't know came with it- I was accustomed to auto thinking all GO= great! Never DID locate that super green wallpaper even tho you told me where it was- repeat info please? I'm again subscribed & hope you also do S4 videos. Thanks, Sandra. Use [email protected] (there was mixup on my YouTube signup that I recently discovered. Thx Sandra

On newer versions of Android I agree with you, but for folks running older 2.x versions of Android, task killers actually do well as long as you're not too aggressive with them :-)

Don't people realize using task killers is just the opposite of what android phones are designed for? Android is built with an automated process that kills apps that aren't used and when you open other apps, it will always prioritize the latest ones. You'll end up using more battery by killing an app and opening it later than by leaving it alone.

Not sure what you mean by tether privately. Do you mean tether your wireless connection to your PC but without it being visible by others?
Lynn Johnson (6 years ago)
Would like to tether privately.

This is true for newer version of Android, everything 2.x and above. However, there are still some cases where an app will get stuck running, such as a game freezing, or a picture continuously trying to upload. In those cases, it's nice to have an easy way to kill the app.

Por el momento no.

I got this info from an android designer....so I do say, it is a very reliable source!!
Jared Jilton (6 years ago)
Your actually NOT supposed to kill apps that are running in the background! Unlike Microsoft, Android memory is made to stay full!! It does this mainly for speed!! If you use alot of apps, like Facebook, & twitter, & maby text a friend, then check an email, the app will idle in the background. If the app is killed it's of course is gonna take longer to bring you back to the app. It also uses A LOT of your battery. It has to star apps back constantly! So my advice is "don't use a task manager"!!

I don't recommend having the auto-close apps in the background as this usually makes your battery life take a hit and can bog down your processor.

@cmvalenti79 What version of Android are you running?
Willie D. (7 years ago)
@Rawrfearmeh333 you can customize the crap out of your phone with Go Launcher. Check my homepage for different homescreens I've created with Go Launcher.
Christina Valenti (7 years ago)
I installed this a few days ago and although when I hit the "x" button, it does kill the apps, for some reason it appears that my memory DECREASES as opposed to INCREASING. Can anyone shed some light on this for me??
Osolomio (7 years ago)
If you want the same thing but not want to run go launcher ex, just install Taskiller free, it should have a red android as the icon.
P H (7 years ago)
Thanks for the great tutorial.
Sugito Brooke (7 years ago)
slow to open, not sure if it will
Ox King (7 years ago)
You also can kill single apps by touching the icon in the field.
