    So I'm coming from a storm where I was religious with closing apps

    Do I need to do this with a droid and how might I go about closing an app?

    Thanks I love this phone!

    Here is a LOOOOOONG thread with a lot of good info. it will keep you busy for a good 30-40 minutes but check it out. It deals strictly with this subject.

    Again welcome aboard glad to have you here.

    Sweet, thanks for the help.

    I've gotta say, I really liked my Storm 1 when I had it, but man oh man, this is on a whole other level.

    I think some of the frustrations others had in dealing with the Storm were because they were used to smartphones. I was just tickled silly to have a phone that pushed email to me.

    Now I can start appreciating some finer subtleties :)

    My browser hangs up every now and then. I just got to Settings>Applications> Running Services and then touch to close the offending app.

    Yep, the old workhorse served well but oh so slow. Don't try none of that fancy razz-ma-tazz with it. :)

    I for the most part don't mess with closing apps. There are however a few that I will make sure that are closed. That is the browser, google maps, and my internet radio apps. Other then that I let the system do what it's meant to. The reason I close those 3 are because I've seen in the past that sometimes they don't always close and it will drain the battery quickly, so i just make sure they are closed is all.
