[APP]Samsung Active Apps widget (Alternative to Samsung’s Task Manager): Any Launcher
Active Apps is an application which monitor an unusual activity that eats battery or tracking the application that
has been put into 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 eating battery.
