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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Requires PPC, .Net 2.0, WM2003, WM5.0, WM6.0, WM6.1

This is an Alpha release. Tested on WM6 and WM6.1, and on Kaiser, Wizard, and Touch. Please post with any comments or suggestions. Thank you XDA!

NOTE: Be aware that arbitrarily stopping tasks is potentially harmful. I will not accept any responsibility for anything AppSentry does or does not do. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Question Anyone interested?
[BUMP]
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.

Is it something like Oxios Hybernate??

I think it would be an interesting app if it does the same job of Oxios apps (but automatically...)


Let me know....

Does this app close only the running processes or recover space from dead processes like Oxios Hybernate??

I can't use the settings dialog on my VGA Axim x51v. Everything is stuffed on one place.

Same problem with CapSure btw.

It doesn't work on my Touch..
After I push Ok button, my device soft reset.....


It doesn't do the same job of OXIOS app..
It only close existing processes, not the dead ones to increase free memory.....

Is this app supposed to run by itself in the background when the phone is off? I find that it only runs when I turn my phone on. It would be great if it could wake up my device on its own every 30 min. or so and do the countdown.
