Important Notice: 

There is a built-in mechanism to prevent updating widget when you are not on your home screen to save battery. This in turn also cause no of active apps not showing up correctly.  e.q. There is active apps shown on widget but when you open up it's not there. To prevent this from happening you can turn the update to 10 seconds or lower( Lower might consume a bit more battery ). 15 / 10 would be the most appropriate. Please email me instead if you have this kind of issue, i won't be able to reply from the comments. 


As the concept is different from other Task Manager/Task Killer, Please read the Get Starting Guide and About Active Apps to get a better understanding on how it works. 

Here is the description: 

Active Apps is an application which monitor an unusual activity that consumes battery or tracking the application that has been put on standby mode. This is important because some application might not be coded properly. Therefore, even though it has been put on standby mode (Pressing Home) they are still running, eating CPU and hence your device's battery. E.q. browser and gallery apps in the Early Galaxy Tab rom even though it's closed or stand by, it's still consuming battery. However, the scenario is not limited to only Samsung Galaxy tab. Generally, it applies to all android phone. 

How does it differ from other task manager? 

Unlike other task managers, which shows irrelevant applications, Active apps is simple. It only shows programs that have tasks running and possibly consuming CPU. Therefore at one glance you can decide what to do.


- Tracking application that has been put on standby and running (I called them Active Apps).

- Easy Switch tasks for Active Application from Main Application or Widget

- Widget to show Number of Active Applications running which may consume CPUs/Battery

- Provide package manager to manage your installed application(Faster than stock Application Manager). 

- Provide views of Ram, Apps that using RAM and free ram function.

- Provide view of Storage both internal SD and external SD, data and database.

- Provide theme capability - More theme coming soon -

- Provide UI Customization. You can mix and match color to find your desire look.

- Provide 1x1, 1x2 Active Application widget and 1x1, 1x2 Active Ram widget with stylish and beautiful pop up style. 

- Provide a flexible customization on many areas of the application and widgets.

Featured on Xda-Developers: you have any issues pertaining to the application, kindly send me an email

    I loved how it showed running apps BUT had to uninstall ! My new Christmas phone almost melted & ruined parts inside it cause this app got it so hot !! I'm lucky CM Security told me to close this app. It was running in the background & my phone just kept getting hotter & hotter! Beware of this app people! Don't let it cook your phone!

  2. guest-avatar

    The app is good - I have noticed it seems to be taking longer to pull up active apps on both my tablet and phone longer than it used to. But it is great at also being able to go back to an app in the background quicker than the built in task list. I would have given this 5 stars but the icon is just to freakin' ugly. Silly, but it just needs to be upgraded a bit.

  3. guest-avatar

    Does just what I hoped it would do. I only needed it for the widget. My "oem" widget on my Note 10.1 stopped working. I looked days and days for a program/widget as this app has. So thank you and thanks for the info about it not working if not on home screen, etc.

    Until i upgraded to Lollipop. It does not tel me what is running anymore. I will hold on to the app a little longer to see if they fix the issue.

    I like this app because since using it my battery doesn't run down as quickly. Only problem is it only works about half the time. The rest of the time the screen goes black when I press the icon. I don't know why. If it worked consistently I'd rate it a 5.

  6. guest-avatar

    Problem fixed it is working great!! Recommend this to all of you!! I have had it on all of my devices for a couple of years, even on my kids phones to teach them to look every time they get off of a game or etc go to active app and end the running apps!! Great app killer.. ;)

    Stopped showing me which apps were open. Not happy with it at all. I used to really like this app. Now I am extremely disappointed! Please fix the problem!!

  8. guest-avatar

    I upgraded my phone and love this app but the part where you close apps dont work. Can not see where there is apps open know my phone dies quickly. Help

  9. guest-avatar

    Many months passed since you were made aware of the app not working on Lollipop. Are you going to upgrade it or should it just be uninstalled? Your silence is deafening...

  10. guest-avatar

    Stopped telling me what's running after lollipop upgrade Sony Xperia z1 holding on to see if it gets sorted

  11. guest-avatar

    Great for awhile then "dead"; have to uninstall/reinstall then re-add widget; icon turns gray/black which means not working; have original Samsung Note. *Update: working now, but slow in loading "open" apps; also after clearing all apps, number goes back to "0" but then each time pops back to "1"...can't figure out what app is still active!?

  12. guest-avatar

    Kills apps when they're twitching. Clears a little ram when needed. Just a simple clean app manager

  13. guest-avatar

    Sony C6603. No apps showing as active. Another task-killer app does show the active apps.

  14. guest-avatar

    Used to love this app for clearing ram, but since my phone updated to lollipop, every time I go to clear the ram it crashes and I get the "unfortunately the app has stopped working" message.

  15. guest-avatar

    Freezing every time you're using it and this is on the screen (Unfortunately, Active Apps has stopped).
