I’ve found that using an app that simulates a reboot can be very helpful in increasing the performance of my Android devices.
I use Fast Reboot. I use it on both my Android smartphone and tablet as I hate waiting for my devices to reboot. With Fast Reboot, I rarely have to perform an actual reboot and they’re quickly back to their peak performance.
This doesn’t require you to root your device. It’s much faster than a physical reboot, clears memory and keeps your Android device running smooth.
Doesn’t this do what advanced task killer was doing? Or is this better than that? Seems like if you always do a fast reboot or whatever, you are just needing to waste more battery power starting those apps again. This might be helpful for when the phone really starts to lag and you can’t be bothered for a full reboot, but from the looks of it, it’s only killing apps, not clearing cache and memory.
Mat – that’s exactly what it’s doing. It’s not the perfect solution (which would be better app management in Android) but it’s better than task killers worked for me. That’s far from a scientific assessment, for sure, but I do like it. I’ve got it on all my Android devices.
