    we all know background processes, backgrounder etc can slow down your device. How about a task manager like app where you can see what programs are running, and how much of your total ram is being used?

    i know i would get some use out of it. What do you guys think?

    Install "top" in Cydia, then run the command "top" in Terminal to see the running processes with live updating.

    If you want a Process/Task Manager, may I suggest Windows Mobile?

    I use it all the time and it works great. It automatically updates every second or so with percentages and RAM usage numbers. Keep in mind it's a command though, so there's no fancy graphical interface, but one isn't really necessary for such a task anyway. But yeah, I highly recommend it if you're looking for such a tool.
