Does anyone know where I can find the task manager to close apps running. I'm havinga hell if a time trying to find it
Hold home buttom and the tap the left most button. Exactly why do you need to close apps? If not used correctly you will have worse battery life.
Hold down home button until it pops up. Then you can swipe the applications left or right to close individually or select the trash can to close all.
Also, after you press the home button, not only can you swipe out some apps to close them, or close them all, you should also see the very Task Manager icon you seek on the left hand side of the screen. Press it, and voila, your full task manager appears.
I had the my touch 4g slide before and if you didn't close out apps it would just suck the life out of the phone
That's false and true at the same time. If you close properly coded apps with the BACK button they will not run in the background. The app will be cached and use 0 processes. If you hit the HOME button then they will always run in the background.
As they say press and hold the home button until the task manager appears.
You can install the short cut apps at google play:
