Task Manager & Process Viewer For BlackBerry!
As a former WinMo user, I always appreciated the ability to view any process currently running on my device. It made troubleshooting fairly straight forward and simple. Well say hello to those options on your precious BlackBerry device. It's being dubbed the "Task Manager & Process Viewer For BlackBerry".
This is not a simple "press and hold" of the BlackBerry button. This app provides a tabbed view of critical functions on your Berry, such as running applications, battery performance, free flash memory, and battery temperature. One tab, "Processes" shows a list of hidden applications and processes running in the background that would normally go undetected.
The app is currently available in our Online Store, and is being offered as a free version. Here's hoping this app progresses well, and finally gives us the opportunity to kill a running app!

IT says the app kill and view is only available in paid.. anyone know how much that will be?
I tried to install and I have an error. I'm running 18.104.22.1683 on a 9530. I have the OTA installer and when I click on it, a web page open for the user agreement, I click on accept and then I have a error HTTP 404 ''Impossible to load page'' Is this a authorization issue in my browser? It's not the first time that it happen to me but the other times I didn't address the issue.
Thanks in advance
Same here on my Tour with 22.214.171.124. They've got work to do on the server before the download is going to work. Error says:

Getting a 404 error also.
This looks really cool, but I have some concerns about how this company is distributing their software. I downloaded OTA from the store and got an icon called "Install TaskManager". Clicking on that gave me the EULA, which stated not that this was a free feature-limited version but a 7 day trial. Like the rest of you I got a 404 when i tried to accept the EULA. Then the fun part. I went to uninstall the downloader and found it didn't show up in the application list, not in Mobylol's Surewipe, nor in Aerize cardloader's list of installed apps. I thought maybe it was like one of the service book installers pushed down by those b@stard telcos, but nothing in service books either. HiddenProgs and applist also failed to show me the installer. I'm a little disturbed by this. Offering a dl of a downloader isn't normal practice for BB software vendors in any case, but is especially suspicious when it isn't uninstallable. Additionally, the description they have provided says free version, not trial, which is belied by their EULA. I would gladly pay for the thing, but not if the provider is acting all shady like this.

Sounds kind of scary. Looks like a great application I hope they get these bugs worked out but I'm not touching it.
@TPM - Let us know when this is fixed please.
How to download this
I was just looking for an app like this yesterday!! Looks awesome! But....I downloaded their install launcher and after I agreed to their EULA it tries to direct me to the download page and I'm getting the 404 error also.....
BUT... I just figured this out Go to Empower HTML Email Viewer, Blackberry Threaded SMS and more and click on the Task Manager & Process Viewer download link its actually a Public Beta! So click on the Public Beta button and put in your e-mail address and they will send you a link to download OTA....OR you can simply go to Empower Apps from your mobile browser!! then you will be able to install it. Apparently....they require you to have something called Empower Central installed before you can install this app.... I don't really know what this is all about yet but I will be installing it shortly...sounds annoying........will post findings shortly.

Ok so apparently this empower central is a central launch point for all appz released by this guy or "Empower" ....its a nice interface to launch his appz....it looks just like the Storm Icon layout.
So I'm sure what happened to me is probably the CRAP 126.96.36.1994 Bold leak but I launched Empower central and launched task manager and was playing with it and BOOM random reboot LOL I'm seriously going back to .238 tonight I thought I fixed .314 but NOPE. Anyhow I hope everyone enjoys this but it looks like the full feature set for this won't be available until it is out of Beta and you can purchase it.

This is a waste of time you can't even view processes running unless you upgrade to the paid version. I thought it was a trial but was mistaken.
I was able to delete the 'install' icon. Just highlight it and hit the menu button (liek you would if you were going to hide it) and you can delete it from there.
Installed central and the app. Not sure what it really shows. Wish you could shut down the apps from here like the task manager in Windows.

Thanks for the link bbphreak but this doesn't sound like it's worth it at all. I know my berry works great and I'm a little sceptical of applications that run in the background anyway.
Yea I think once its fully functional it will be worth it (if you buy it) since you can kill processes...which is the main reason I would want something like this....and also to be able to view all running modules and system modules.
As with the others, a complete disappointment. Getting the same 404 error. If those who are lucky enough to get it to install and getting only a trial version and unable to uninstall, I am surprised in the ethics of the developers. Advertise for free, get you in and then let you down with a trial version. Not good business. Fantastic idea but wrong approach.
