While you can browse the Android Market to find and download task management applications, we recommend that you use the built-in Android application management tools rather than third-party task killers as Android inherently manages multi-tasking and resource management more efficiently than ever.
Some options for closing applications include:
- Close or sign out of applications so that they do not continue running; you can often do this by pressing the Menu key while in the application
- Use the running services application to end user-installed applications that are still running but no longer needed; to do this, press Menu then tap Settings > Applications > Running Services and tap the running application to stop it
- If the open applications synchronize data, make sure you optimize the synchronization settings for improved battery life; to do this, press Menu then tap Settings > Accounts & sync
