Typically a task in Android or any other operating system is simply a process either started with the phone automatically or by an application when you choose to launch it. The tasks are in fact silently running in the background every second in your smart phone. For example, if you want to open a game, it involves a task. These tasks take place in the phone memory, which is why sometimes your phone hangs up when you try to open many applications at the same time. The simple reason is that your phone memory is filled with tasks and can't do anything until some of them are finished. This is actually annoying and a time consuming problem, however the good news is that many applications called task manager, task killer or process manager, is out there in the market and they can effectively kill any unnecessary tasks that run in the background.
