I can never end a task easily on the HTC tattoo - is there a shortcut to it I can make, or an easier app to use?

The fastest way I know is from the home screen click Menu->Settings->Applications->Running Services. There are some task manager applications, though from what I've read they may be more trouble than their worth as far as bugginess and/or eating through your battery quickly.

Though this is on an Incredible. I assume the menus are similar, especially since they're both HTC phones, but it may be a little different on your Tattoo. – keithjgrant Sep 14 '10 at 17:24

Personalize (lower right button on home screen) Shortcut Settings Running services

This adds a shortcut to the Running Services screen to my home screen, HTC Thunderbolt with Sense 2.0 UI
