    Does what it's supposed to.

    This is a great ap, and does exactly what it says. My only issue is that this is yet another program that B&N should already have on the tablet free! I bought your device, let me use it how I want

    Process killer works as does the uninstaller, which took care of a broken installation that was hogging space. Haven't tried the backup and restore enough to comment on it. This should be built-in functionality, though.

    Does what it should

    Clean interface. Shows running processes, allowing you to kill apps taking battery power in the background. Has options to show and hide system processes as well, which keeps things much cleaner. Worth the dollar.

    Should be standard
    Straightforward to use app that shows running processes with options to hide/ show system services. i like that it lets you hide processes you don't want to see. Should come standard on Nook.

    Very Helpful App

    Easy to use app with a clean interface. Shows running processes and lets you kill processes that are hogging system resources. Lots of good options to show and hide processes and system services.

    Also shows all the apps I have installed and I was able to uninstall a few I don't use anymore.

    Well worth the dollar I paid for it.

    Great Tool For the Nook!

    This is a great tool for helping to manage your apps. I mostly use it to kill apps that continue to run after I am finished using them, to extend battery life. Such as I can close my weather app after I check the weather but App Killer allows me to kill it completely until I need to check the weather again. You can't kill Nook applications, only apps that you install yourself. I haven't tested my battery life to see how much I am exactly improving it but I have certainly improved it. This tool works!

    Really like this app.

    While I don't think it should be necessary to add this to my nook color just to get rid of something, I do appreciate having it and would buy it again. Because it is so effective, I am always very careful to pay attention before deleting anything.

    Does what it says

    Only thing I'd like to see changed is an auto-kill feature. Of course if our good friends at Barnes and Noble loosened their restrictions on Android apps, we'd be able to have that feature.

    Love this application. Quick way to get a view of all the applications running on the device and kill any that I do not want. Would be nice to get some of the other device settings added as another tab or even get a sens of the applications that are being used vs. the ones that are not used at all.

    Not very impressed

    It doesn't work 90% of the time I use it and thats just been to kill apps. I was really hoping I could uninstall the amv and twitter apps imposed on me by BN but every time I've hit the uninstall tab it becomes unresponsive and I have to force close it.

    Awesome!

    It is amazing how many apps and programs keep running after you exit them. Now I know what is running! It's like clicking 'Quit' on a regular computer.

    Indispensible app!

    The app killer is not what i expected. It does kill some apps. It does not come with user tips so I may not be using it correctly or to my full advantage, that frustrates me.

    Pretty good app killer!

    This is a pretty good app killer, just wish that it was able to stop certain apps from automagically restarting again and again...some apps don't need to be running in the background (like games, etc.) all the time! I think that the peeps that create apps ought to stop doing that ... if a device only has so much memory, all those apps that don't NEED to be kept running are taking up too much memory and run the batteries down a lot faster!

    Great app that gives you back control of YOUR device. I was amazed to find how many apps started up and ran in the background constantly, wasting MY resources and bandwidth. However, some apps, when you kill them, just come right back on again minutes later. Not the fault of this app, though, it's the fault of all the data-mining shysters who make the other apps, and of course Barnes and Noble, a company I hate to no end.

    nice little "decider" helper

    concerned about battery usage--on a long flight---here is a nice little app that defines where the power is being used and helps to decide what to "kill" for conservation purposes
