[NEW Task Manager] AppSentry - Kills tasks even when you are not using your phone
Development has ended.
NOTE: The method used to allow AppSentry to not run in background like other task managers is not supported on all phones/PPCs. I do not have a list of capatible devices. It will nto harm any device, but the schedule may not work as desired.
This Task Manager does not run in the background...
This Task Manager does not require you to run it...
This Task Manager kills running tasks at a schedule you set with or without notification.
There are 2 main ways to run AppSentry:
Manual: Run it from shortcut or map it to a hardware key. It will popup and show you the list of tasks running. If you selected the countdown option then it will countdown the number of seconds and the automatically kill the tasks. Without countdown. AppSentry will wait for you to click OK, Cancel, or Settings.
Scheduled: In options, tell AppSentry how often to run. After the interval you specify, it will popup and behave the same as above.
Other options include vibrate on popup, sound as the timer ticks down, and an exclusion list for apps you do not ever want to automatically kill.
In a task manager that does not take up precious memory. You don't even have to run it or click or an icon or even be near your phone for AppSentry to kill those tasks that are stealing your memory and battery power.
