iPhone App Killer

I just got the iPhone and was looking for an App Killer. I'm aware I can manually stop apps running in the background, but it would be nice to have an app do it every hour or so.

Does anyone have any links or suggestions for good app killers? Do these apps even exist on the iPhone/iOS?

There are NO legal applications to perform this task, you need to Jailbreak your iPhone to install illegal applications via Cydia which can do this.

Agreed.  Jobs once said I believe that the operating system is a failure if it needs a "Task Manager" (i have definately misquoted him) but we all know which operating system has a task manager.

An App killer currently does not exist and if I was a betting man, never will.
