Allows you to keep your Android phone running smooth and fast by enabling you to "Force Kill" applications running in the background either one by one or with the click of a single widget
On the Market here.
In addition to the standard application there are also 3 flavors of widgets you can choose from depending on your desired degree of control and space on the home screen.
All of the widgets allow for click support on the widget and will kill running applications differently, what is the same is the message they display after run.
The first is a simple 1x1 widget, it simply has the Android logo with a number on his 'shirt'? Either way the number will refresh with the number of running applications, you can click the widget and it will kill all running applications.
The second widget is a 2x1 widget, it displays icons of the running applications. You can individually click on the ones you want to shutdown.
The third widget is a 4x1 widget, this has the most information available on the home screen. It is really an expansion of the 2x1 widget and also shows the available memory to the phone (which is also a clickable kill all) and a refresh button to make sure the widget is up to date.
All in all the widgets are very powerful and can help get your phone back on track if you are having memory problems. I have seen that the widgets do not always refresh in real time, however whether or not it has refereshed you will still be able to kill all applications.
