    "Fantastic app to help with battery life. This program overrides a lot of default system controls and truly shuts down apps and programs that are running in the background, sucking away at your battery. I HIGHLY recommend this app to anyone who has a lot of apps and have seen thier battery life draining a lot quicker. There is a root version as well that allows you to shut programs down, but have them run in a cold state and still get notifications. AWESOME because you dont have to open the app anymore to get it running and then get notifications!"

    "I really needed an app to kill processes on my android to free up resources. Andvanced Task Killer is really easy to use and really effective. It's straight forward, start it up and and you get a list of programs you can kill, temporarily. After stopping a lot of the bloatware my phone ran a lot faster."

    "Watchdog is like an Activity Monitor that tells you what apps you have running in the background and how much CPU they're using. I can live with the ads that come with this app in order to take advantage of the supervision over the apps I have open. "
