Ok... I'm an old guy trying to figure out this Dinc thing. I don't think I'm an idiot. But HOW DO YOU CLOSE AN APP????
I have AppKiller which can kill off an app, but when I open the Internet window, I can't find a Quit option in the menu. I thought that was insane, then I noticed none of my apps have a quit. This can't be right so I must have missed something in the 300+ pages of my manual?
Some apps give you the option of closing.
HOWEVER, the great thing about Android is that it will close the app for you if it needs the memory.
You do not need a task killer (read up on them, many people think they are bad for your phone).
app killer or no app killer. the endless debate. i have one and use it. i think they are fine, and many in the know have told me they are....IF you learn how to use it properly. you can create an "ignore list." you put things like calendar, clock, etc (things that you DO NOT want to shut down ever) on this list. then periodically just toufh the app killer to kill all running programs. it's the easiest way to end them. however, like framcire said, some apprs have a quit or exit command in there menu.....some will also quit by backing out (touch the little back arrow over and over until it exits or asks if you really want to exit). some programs also don't have any quit or exit command. it will not be a problem if your iternet is running in the background. i actually like it when i open it back up and i'm still on the last page i left.
To follow is from one of the articles. i've inserted my response/experience after each statement. So… the TL;DNR Version:
You are also forgetting that any app running and using memory is also using extra battery power. By just closing unused apps you conserve battery. You can gain significant battery time by reducing the number of running apps.
