Facebook Beats Google in Android Market

According to Nielsen Research Facebook app has overtaken Google apps on its own turf. The research was based on the active usage of the app in last 30 days. After Android Market, which is required to download apps, Facebook was the most actively used app on Android devices.

Gmail came a close second in most age groups. One app in particular that catches my attention is Advanced Task Killer. Almost 25% of the users actively use Advanced Task Killer on their phone. For those of you who don't know about the app, it is a app that is constantly running on the phone and terminates apps that are running in background and no longer needed. It helps in freeing up memory as well as extends the battery life.

If so many users have to depend on a third party app to improve the performance of the phone why can't Google come up with a built-in app for better app management?
