    You can say what you want about it, but leaving a app running in the back is a very bad idea...But that's just my opinion and I won't respond to this again..

    Uh, OK. You don't want to offer any proof of your claim? This is a DISCUSSION board, you know?

    If you mean that you should use the Exit/Quit/Close button of an app then I agree with you. It is something you might want to do because it's probably there for a reason. This is especially true for the Navigation app as it can leave GPS going if you don't do menu > Exit.

    But even if apps have an exit button, it normally isn't even needed to use it. The OS is smart enough to free up resources as needed. An app sitting idly in memory is using basically zero battery power. If the app is DOING SOMETHING, then it is using battery power. If the app is poorly designed it will use unneeded resources. Uninstall it!

    If there's one complaint that I have about some of the Apps out there that I use, it's the lack of an Exit option. And even then, maybe I'm just complaining about nothing.

    Well, yeah, especially coming from Windows where you have to close things when you're done. But Android really is different. If NO app had an exit button, Android can still handle it and free resources as needed. It gets you wondering why apps do have exit buttons since they're normally not really needed.

    If that be the case. Then why don't we just start designing pcs that way. They are supposedly way smarter then the android os.
    Its not that i don't understand the concept behind the thinking of the developers. I understand it very well. I do vb, c++, and few other programming languages. Have also played with android os as well. Just think its a bad idea.
    I'm not an expert on the subject but do know enough that using the system memory will slow it down.
    That is my last comment on this subject for sure but had to respond on it one last time.

    The design of Android is not meant to be a discussion.

    It's been explained.

    If you want to hold onto backwards thinking, go ahead.

    Android opens apps because that's how it's supposed to run. It will reclaim memory when it needs it.

    Open Google, do some searching, the proof will STARE YOU IN THE FACES

    If you're going to post, be productive.

    Coming into this thread just to be a pain will get you no where, unless you're looking for a vacation

    i've never used auto killer apps before. if i've ever had a problem with an app messing with my phone i've gone one by one to figure out what's going on. HOWEVER, i have started using the autokiller app on the market that changes the os's memory management. my phone has NEVER run better. nothing drives me crazier than launcher re-draws. i have had ZERO redraws since i started using it. god himself can write a blog and tell me to stop using it and i'd refuse. doubled my satisfaction with my x.

    Im just curious how an app that is in the background pulling no cpu's is magically making your phone slower?

    i'm guessing when it runs out of memory it is closing the launcher. now with autokiller adjusting the memory settings i haven't had that problem to answer your condescending question.
