    Running apps

    I have been using an application killer to close applications that I am no longer using. However, I see a ton of Apps that are listed to be closed that I have never opened. Why are these Alps listed that I don't use?

    They either do automatic syncs (which can be turned off in settings for most apps), or are coded badly. I look for apps that are functional AND don't kill my phone's battery/memory.

    Ie: I opted for the ESPN news that doesn't do anything until I click on it (then it shows all the headlines), as opposed to the widget that scans the headlines on your workspace all the time. It uses less battery and memory.

    Silver check you may want to check out this thread. Particularly post #21 by andjarnic.

    There is a lot of good info in the thread and it will help you understand the Droid and it's OS a lot better.
