Advanced Task Killer - Closed Which are not used to conserve battery.

Anyone who has a basic understanding of Android knows that these task killers are not only not recommended for use, but rather the opposite - Recommended not to be used.

And just to be petty:

Swype - one of the best keyboards around. (Not from the market).

SwiftKey 3 Keyboard - Another excellent keyboard.

SwiftKey 3 does not see Swype from a meter - it is better than it in several orders of magnitude.

If you want a bit to expand why this app is not recommended and in addition maybe zero other (or type of zero) not recommended the same will be excellent.

Edit: I found the article this, But if you have something interesting (or link) beyond I'd love.

In addition, I would be happy if you specify and perhaps even expand on zero and other zero types that are not recommended.


Second, speaking of zero best practices and less, what about BBEZEQ ??

OMRIJ's link is excellent :)

Here is an interesting quote from this article, which I did not know before:

A lot of developers (including ROM builder extraordinaire, Cyanogen) will not even look at your bug reports if you're using a task killer.

GOO MANAGER. Software similar to the TOOLBOX ROM mentioned before a few posts, with a focus on the theme of Romans only (and free).

It's nice that it actually allows you to do an OTA update to any rum it supports (among others).

CEREBRUS - software that allows you to track the device, lock, delete, remove a call from the device, report when replaced SIM and many more cool things if the phone lost / stolen. You can control the device via a WEB interface (like ICLOUD) or via SMS.

Coming free for a week, 3 EUR grants a perpetual license as 5 Instruments.

You can also install another FLASH from CWM and then it is installed as a system application and can not be removed (there is also a hidden mode, whose name appears as SYSTEM FRAMEWORK).

Highly recommended!
