Catty Task Switcher

Catty Task Switcher


All-in-one screen shows running/recent/launchable tasks and services, allows switching to or stopping them.

Can be used as a sort of task switcher, process monitor, manual task killer, service stopper, app drawer, app launcher, or package browser.

Buttons along the top select which kind of tasks/services to include in the display. Alternatively, search for apps by name. Everything is color-coded and clearly labeled.

To run this from another app, long-press the SEARCH key. It can also be run from a desktop icon or launcher.

Tap the name of any launchable app to run it. Long-press on any app for its Application Info screen, to examine or clear or force-stop it.

Notes:

Automatic task killers are generally counter-productive. For an unwanted active app, highlighted in green, just LONG-PRESS its name then click FORCE-STOP.

To stop or uninstall system apps requires that you "root" your device. This app helps you find the packages to freeze or remove.

Recent changes:
5.1 -- Added a button to highlight receivers and providers.
5.0 -- Fixed to run on Android versions F through J

Like the others GREAT! Every time my phone 'improves' its os, half my utility apps stop working. Only the Catty apps update quickly. Everyone should be a cat(ty) person.
