    This might be a newbie question but what is the proper way to close apps? When I do they're still runnin in the task manager eating cpu and memory. Thanks, I love this phone. I switched to android from windows. Ill never go back to windows!

    Actually, according to other posts, they do not use cpu unless they are doing/monitoring something. I think there's a sticky about it that I'm sure someone will link to soon.

    Use the apps exit/quit/close button if it is using CPU. If it's not using CPU, don't worry about it because the OS will kill it as needed. It's not using battery or CPU if it's sitting idly in memory.

    If the app doesn't have an exit button and it's using CPU in the background, uninstall the app and contact the developer about the problem.

    When done using Maps, return to the home screen so GPS turns off. When done using Navigation, use the Exit button from the menu.

    Don't kill tasks!
