I know this has been reviewed over and over, but I have yet to find definitive answers, and the amount of stuff that launches by itself and when is just confusing.
So I know we have all seen the discussion about killing apps we don't want running, and I've already installed Advanced Task Killer Pro, the question I have is twofold:
1. What HAS to stay open? On the BlackBerry there were certain proceeses that would relaunch if you closed them, and I understand this, but I have no idea which these are here.
2. Why so I sometimes have some things auto-launch and sometimes others? I'll go out somewhere and look at my apps list, and suddenly things like CityID, Photos, Footprints and (Google)Talk will be open, and I never launch these on my own, with the exception of Photos occasionally when I am looking at the 5 or 6 pics I've taken with my Incredible so far.
Lastly, I have a separate but related question: How do you actually close out apps? Simply hitting the 'Home' icon doesn't do this. They will still be running in the background. I'm sure they aren't eating the memory they eat when running at full tilt, but that's not the point. I want to close these programs, and can't figure outhow to do it correctly apparently.
Thanks in advance for any advice. I appreciate it!
