    Question I need an App !!!!!!!!

    Can anyone direct me to an App that will temporarily disable ALL apps running in the back ground, hopefully in one step. I use GoilfLogix while playing golf and I run out of battery before the 18 holes are complete which is usually about 4-1/4 hrs. I always start with a fresh 100% charge. This has only started happening in the last couple of weeks. Previously I could get 18 holes in and still have battery left thru the evening.

    GolfLogix is maintaining that it is not here problem.

    Droid Razr
    ICS

    Thanks in advance.

    The only way I know of to do what you want to do is to root and use an app like Titanium Backup to freeze apps and system files that can run in the background. The problem is figuring out what system apps you can freeze and not have it affect the phone functions you don't want to stop. Figuring out the apps to freeze is not to hard.

    That would prevent user downloaded apps from running but not system or carrier apps from running. Plus, he then couldn't run his golf app which requires GPS.

    Actually it doesn't exactly work that way. If your rooted and running a third party launcher such as Nova you can run any application you have a created a shortcut for, or create a shortcut using the activities method even in safe mode.

    caveats:

    rooted
    nova is a system app

    Easiest thing to do is convert the game into a system app and boot safe mode. Either way you must be rooted.

    Here is a screen shot of me in safe mode taken just now running various apps including GPS

    The OP could also use debugging/developer options to disable all but a single background app. This may only available in JB or perhaps the Nexus (don't have a Razr) and can't remember if ICS had this option.

    then it is almost certainly GolfLogix causing massive battery drain
