Most of the task manager in the market allows you to kill manually or automatically apps with no criteria (just that they're running). Watchdog Task Manager came to end up with blindly task killing. It helps you to monitor your running apps and alerts you when one loses control or keeps running after regular closing. Watchdog Task Manager allows you to kill that single app easily. What's more, if you permit it, it will send a bug report to the app's developer to let him know what's wrong.
Watchdog Task Manager allows you to track stats of apps' performance, launch apps, put it on the whitelist or the blacklist (just available in the paid version). It also gives you some info about %CPU usage of all the running apps.
Watchdog just hides the system app that mustn't be killed because they restart immediately. Most task killers put in the same list system apps that need to be running permanently with user apps that can be killed. Killing all of them just provokes the opposite effect: more resources and battery consumption. Watchdog solves this problem by let them hidden.
This is the free version of Watchdog Task Manager. Upgrade to the paid version ($3.49) if you want to have all the features (including "blacklist") and remove the ads.
Watchdog Task Manager has been developed by Zomut, LLC., an emerging developer with a couple of apps on the market who's trying to put a dent in it.
Sincerely, this is a simple but great task manager, that brings some added-value features: hide system apps from list, whitelist, alerts and stats. High recommendable.
