Advanced Task Killer (ATK) for Android - great little utility

If you're using an Android smartphone like the Motorola Droid, the HTC Droid Eris, the HTC Hero, or the Google Nexus One, make sure you install Advanced Task Killer or ATK. It's currently listed as one of the most popular free apps on the Android Market (app store).

What's so great about Advanced Task Killer? It's a great little utility that allows you to close (or kill) apps running in the background. On smartphones running Android, if you switch from one app to another app, the first app still runs in the background. If you're not rebooting your smartphone on a regular basis, then you may notice that your device is getting slow and sluggish. Advanced Task Killer allows you to effectively close some of those apps running in the background so that you can have access to more memory for your current app.
