    Has anyone found a good task manager from the market place that works well on the HERO? There are a lot to choose from and the reviews aren't as helpful as I thought they would be. What are you using and how do you like it? Thanks

    Someone out there on the interwebs wrote an article about how task managers reduce performance on Android devices. Linux manages tasks so you don't have to. Very different from Windows.

    Another tip I saw was to use the back button to leave a program instead of hitting the home button. The home button may leave the program running in the background.

    basically from what I've heard whether you hit the home button or the back button shouldn't matter. Android basically wants to keep the apps you use open, but in an idle state. There's a lot of differing opinions on whether a task manager has any benefit. In my case, the only time I had problems with my Droid acting weird was while I had the "advanced task killer" installed, once I ditched that and let android do it on it's own I was fine again. Motorola apparently has a group working on whether there are any real benefits or not

    I downloaded the Astro file and task manager for file management. Something went wrong with the browser and I used Astro to kill it instead of rebooting the phone. Handy. Swype rocks.

    I noticed that the HERO only allows 6 items to run at a time.
