- So I've realized that as open an app and then close, it'll go into that background double-click screen. After a period of time you start to accumulate a rather large number of apps sitting in the background. Is there ever a point where you have too many apps sitting there and it starts interfering with the phone performance/battery? Is it better to close apps that aren't in use? Just curious.
Thanks in advance.06-24-2010 10:23 PM

- Glad this helped! I found it very helpful myself because I was confused too. I kept holding my finger on the apps and when the little minus came up I'd close them because I didn't want my resources or my battery being tanked. Seems that isn't the case. This is my 2nd day with my iPhone 4 so I just let it take care of itself today and I didn't see any lag or hit to my battery. I guess time will tell!06-24-2010 10:55 PM
- The problem I have with background apps is knowing which ones are still running. Coming from Blackberry, I knew exactly what was open and could close them down when I wasn't using them. Now I'm on an out of date Android phone (Hero , 1.5) and it's hard to tell what stays running and what doesn't.
Can't wait to make the switch and hear how everyone is dealing with their battery life management. (biggest complaint with Android/HTC phones)06-25-2010 12:34 AM
You really don't need to think about it as much as you would on other multitasking phones.06-25-2010 10:51 AM

- Thanks for that very helpful piece on Apple mutitasking. It answered the questions I had about running Pandora while doing other things (if only Sirius would get on the stick and release an update!!)
This piece ran on Monday:
iOS 4 brings the usual bang from Apple for mobile :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Andy Ihnatko
He gives a good analogy in it about the iPhone version of mutitasking.06-25-2010 07:28 PM
