Best TaskMan screenshot

Best TaskMan shows comprehensible information about programs and processes running on the device. Unlike built-in task switcher it tells you exactly what programs are running on your smartphone and it gives you answers to the obvious ensuing questions, such as where these programs reside, memory they consume and what capabilities they use.

In addition to that you can switch between running applications, close unneeded ones, launch your favorite applications fast (quickstart) or go deeply with enhanced process viewer and installed applications list.

If you really want to know what's behind of the screen of your device and want to control it then Best TaskMan is the application for you.

tasks list

This view shows the information about running applications. You can see what applications are running currently, switch to the needed application, get information about any running application, close some application or all applications at once. You may also see the amount of memory available at the end of the list.

memory info

This view shows brief and detailed information about your device memory, phone disk and memory card

quick start

This view allows you to increase the productivity usage of your smartphone. You can place here all most used applications and access them very fast when you need them.

quick start launcher

You can start an application directly from this view but there is also Quick start launcher - a unique and very fast way to start favorite applications.

switcher

TaskMan's Task Switcher is an alternative way to cycle applications (that requires much less key presses to switch between applications). TaskSwitcher has the same look and feel as "Alt-Tab on Windows".

Taskswitcher on Nokia E90

Taskman is wide screen friendly, you can see on this screen how task switcher works on Nokia E90

When you start TaskMan you can see 3 main views: Open applications, Memory and Quick start. You can switch between them with left/right cursor keys or by selecting the needed view from 'View' menu.

Open applications view


This view shows the information about running applications. You can see what applications are running currently, switch to the needed application, get information about any running application, close some application or all applications at once. You may also see the amount of memory available at the end of the list.

This view substitutes the built-in task manager (if enabled in options) and task selecting navigation here is the same as in the built-in one. You can select an application by using joystick or just pressing Menu key several times to select the needed application and then long press Menu key to switch to the application.

You can also select in Settings not to substitute the built-in task manager but to define your custom taskman activation hotkey, in this case both Best TaskMan and the system task manager will work without conflicts at the same time (See Settings section in this documentation for more information).

Hint: When this view is shown it automatically highlights the previously focused application so you can cycle between 2 last applications in a fast way.

Advanced configuration
You can select "Tasklist exceptions", and "'Close all' exceptions" from Settings menu in this this view:

  • Tasklist exceptions - Allows to define a list of applications that should be hidden in Open applications view. It can be very comfortable to hide some applications running in background all the time and you switch to them very seldom. This option also applies to TaskSwitcher applications list (see TaskSwitcher section in this documentation for more information).
  • 'Close all' exceptions - As 'Close all' command in Open applications view closes all non system applications you can set up here an additional list of applications that should not be closed with 'Close all' command.

Memory view


This view shows brief and detailed information about your device memory, phone disk and memory card


Quick start view


This view allows you to increase the productivity usage of your smartphone. You can place here all most used applications and access them very fast when you need them.

You can add an application to this list using "Add application(s)" command. Also you may use "Move up" and "Move down" commands (or shift+up/down keys) to arrange the applications.

You can start an application directly from this view but there is also Quick start launcher - a unique and very fast way to start favorite applications. To use it you need to define a "Quick start hotkey" in system settings. Then the Quick start launcher window will appear after pressing the hotkey. From navigation and behavior point of view Quick start launcher is similar to TaskSwitcher (please see TaskSwitcher section below for more information) but there is favorites applications list instead of running tasks list.


Task Switcher


TaskMan's Task Switcher is an alternative way to cycle applications (that requires much less key presses to switch between applications). TaskSwitcher has the same look and feel as "Alt-Tab on Windows". You can configure your own TaskSwitcher hotkey in 'Settings'. Default hotkey for it is "Shift+Menu".

For example you can set up Shift+Menu button for this action. Then press Shift+Menu any time you work with your device, keep Shift button pressed and hit Menu as many times as needed to select some application. Release Shift button to switch to the selected application instantly. Absolutely the same as Alt-Tab works on Windows.

Hint: While you keep Shift pressed as in our example you can also use cursor keys to select the needed application and release Shift button to switch to the selected application.

One hand mode:

You can define any hotkey to use with TaskSwitcher. A hotkey consisting of Modifier (Shift,Fn,Ctrl) and other button could not be handy in certain situations, e.g. to use with one hand. So you can define TaskSwitcher key without any modifiers, e.g. to Dictaphone, Multimedia, Camera, etc key. If so TaskSwitcher will behave like the built-in one but with improved functionality.

For example you can set up Dictaphone key to be used as TaskSwitcher. Then press Dictaphone key any time you work with your device and TaskSwitcher will appear. Hit Dictaphone key as many times as needed to select some application. Or use cursor keys to do it. Now long press Dictaphone key (for 1 sec) in order to switch to the selected application (Also you can press Ok or Enter buttons to do it as well). So you can hit Dictaphone button several times only (and no other key) to switch to any needed application fast and with one hand only.

Note: 'Shift' button on most Series 60 devices is graphically marked as 'Pen' on device keyboard.


Advanced views

You can access views that show advanced information about your device from "Views \ Advanced" menu. There are Processes, All open apps, and Installed apps views:

  • Processes - Shows all active processes. Allows to get information about them and terminate any 3rd party processes. Ending any system processes are not allowed. System processes are the ones that supplied and configured by the device vendor (in firmware).
  • All open apps - Shows the view similar to Open applications view but it also shows all hidden applications
  • Installed apps - Shows all installed applications on your device. Allows you to get various information about these apps as well.

Settings


Using application settings you can override the default application behavior and customize it to fit your needs.

  • "Taskman activation" - If it is set to "Instead of built-in one" then Best Taskman will replace the built-in task manager when you long press Menu key. If it's set to 'Custom key' then both Best TaskMan and system taskman can work at the same time.
  • "Activation hotkey" - Visible only when Taskman activation is set to 'Custom key'. It allows you to define a hotkey to pop up Best TaskMan from background.
  • "Switcher hotkey" - Allows you to define hotkey to use with TaskSwitcher.
  • "Quick start hotkey" - Allows you to define hotkey to use with Quick start launcher
  • "Autostart Taskman" - if enabled TaskMan will be automatically started in background when system starts
