    "Good task monitor and killer. I like the range of features it has and I'm surprised that they were able to do all this in IOS. My own thing is that it seems to be a battery hog by itself. I wish that wasn't the case. But overall its a pretty solid app."

    "I really like this app. I come from a PC background, but my girlfriend gifted me an iPhone that she really, really, really wanted me to use. So I started using it. The problem is, Apple loves to lock everything down and remove all the control I'm used to with PC and Android. This app was a step toward giving me some of that familiar sense of me being in charge of my computer and phone back. I can keep track of what's going on with the phone, what's using stuff, and can kill things off if they're acting up. Solid app."

    "This app is absolutely worthless. It used to work fine but since the last update it just crashes most of the time. When I do get it to try to work, it doesn't even kill the tasks because I can see that they are open when I open up other task killer apps. It doesn't do what it says it's going to do and that's really frustrating. "

    "While Apple devices do a good job of keeping memory and disk usage in check, having a solid task killer is always helpful. Using System Status Lite, I have found that it helps me optimize the performance of my devices. It's easy to use and navigate, doing a good job of presenting the information you need to see."

    "Not worth the $.99 I paid. Kept freezing up so I had to constantly restart. Then when it DID work, the data was completely inaccurate. Run fast and far from this one!"
