Watchdog Task Manager Lite

Available in :
Stop killing your apps randomly. Start monitoring them with Watchdog.

NOTE: There is an Android issue where Watchdog might crash upon launching after an upgrade. It seems to be related to the upgrade of the app while the old version happens to be executing in the background. It doesn't affect your phone's operation at all. If this happens, re-launch and goto the menu and hit restart for proper monitoring.

Package verification problems: If you installed the Lite version via the Amazon app store, you'll have to upgrade it there(should be available shortly), or uninstall and reinstall the market version. This will solve your problem.

You don't need a task killer. But you do need a way to make sure a background app doesn't lose control and eat up all your CPU.  Watchdog monitors your apps and alerts when one loses control, allowing you to kill just that single app. Killing apps blindly can cause them to stop working as designed, and most app developers won't even take a bug report from you if you are using a task killer!

From Android 2.2 on, the kill command works only on background apps, and they will likely restart immediately. Watchdog removes the app immediately from the list, since there isn't feedback about whether it was successful. Having lots of apps running doesn't hurt your phone at all unless they are doing something. In fact, killing an app and having it immediately restart simply consumes your phones resources. If you just leave the apps running, they will start immediately when you want to go back to it.

The paid version has all the features of the lite, removing the ads, while adding a “blacklist” feature. This allows you to pick a single app that is constantly misbehaving and assign a CPU % threshold to it. When that app exceeds the threshold, it will be automatically killed.

So stop blindly killing all your apps; be smart by managing them instead. Good for all versions of Android.

Watch Dog Works great!

by A Google User the 8/15/2013

Removed due to constant crashes The app is great for monitoring your processor and RAM usage of apps... or atleast it is when it works. More often than not though, I'm presented with the 'crash bug report' dialogue box ranging from 4 times a day upwards with no replies or hints of an issue being addressed despite several crash reports being sent. Perhaps improving the stability or at least discovering what the cause it would be better, and if that happens then I might be tempted to reinstall it but until then it's off my phone.

Guess its good. A little concerned it has not been updated since Winter 2012. Anyways people need to educate themselves about the Android operating system by reading the developer's website. Killing an app does not really kill an app but app is restarted.

by A Google User the 8/15/2013

Like it a lot.can really see what's eating your CPU and can either kill it, uninstall, or see if closinghelps. Way better than a task killer that actually eats your battery.

by A Google User the 8/14/2013

Got what i needed. Alerts me to anything that is using too much cpu. Works great and seems pretty light.

by A Google User the 8/13/2013

S4 Tried out for a few weeks, battery dies way faster. Going back to cleaner.

by A Google User the 8/13/2013

Awesome. Able to control what the cpu uses and terminate services and processes I don't need. Thanks watch dog.

by A Google User the 8/11/2013

Excellent app This app pinpointed an app that was hogging memory, and helped me get control of my phone

by A Google User the 8/11/2013

Memory hog For an app that is supposed to clear up CPU and memory usage, it slows the phone more than it helps. After installing, my phone was lagging far worse than before!

Great app Keeps it all in check
