Thank you for the app.
I have a few suggestions:
-Presets are applied automatically without having to press apply. This is an inconvenient way to see what the settings are.
-The statistics should be uploaded before app exit when settings are finalized as opposed to each time a setting is applied. (When switching through presets this is a double whammy)
-When the keyboard is flipped on the G1 it resets, settings are applied, and the Start up dialog is displayed.

I have v .09
Keep up the good work!

This software is really a godsend. I've never bothered with most of the "Task Killer" programs for exactly the reason AutoKiller was created: Android already has a way to manage memory.

Never occurred to me that the parameters were adjustable though, so thanks for thinking of it and making a useful utility!

Can we exclude apps from being killed, such as the Alarm Clock, etc? Super important for those of us that want to keep out jobs :)

Clock shouldn't be killed by this automatic killer.
It should be one of the most important tasks on android.

I would like to know too. It keeps killing the email app. Hence I never got any email notifications after a while

I would imagine that the idea of "excluding" apps fro this doesn't make any sense or is even feasible, since it isn't artificially killing apps, rather it is adjusting when Android kills apps, I guess you could add some sort of "keep in memory" option like most new launcher apps have but I doubt the efficacy of those options nor do I know if they can be set via an outside app or whether that must be coded into the app itself...

If its killing off apps you need and use frequently, it sounds like you should lower your presets a notch or two. ie. Optimal instead of Strict
