Not sure if this is what you want as it's not a widget but an app that stays in menu bar, but it sounds like it does what you want? It's called AppSwipe! i think...

Edit: Actually re-reading your post I don't think it does do what you want lol

Yea that's a pretty good idea.. that is actually how AppSwipe! is but unfortunately it's an app in the notification bar rather than a widget :(

There is no need for widget - just press and hold Home button and Alt+Tab style task manager will appear. It works on my Acer Liquid with stock 1.6. Did not know it until this morning, now removed all widgets/apps for task switching.

The only thing I have found is "Advanced Task Manager" you can kill running apps with this too

Hope this helps

Thats not a task switcher. It's a list of the last apps or most used apps you used. Pretty sure it says that in the Manual - It certainly does for the HTC desire.

You may have a try with TaskOS: http://www.cyrket.com/p/android/com.profete162.TaskOS/, that's something I had in mind while developing it.

It can also kill task you don't use when dragging icos to the top.

You can launch it with a long press on search button or camera button ( for the camera, just go in setings because I don't want to remove your camera button ;-) )

I think that CedricGatay has done something very cool with his widget!

It's both. The list of recently-used apps includes some of those which are running.

Is there a task switcher out there which displays all running apps in the notification bar? IE it has an icon in the notification bar and when we open the notification panel it shows the running apps in its entry. That would be the best task switcher I think, as itd be switching tasks with only two taps.
