There is a great camera app called Camera 360 that I have installed and uninstalled a few times recently due to battery usage issues that I can not seem to resolve.
There are a number of threads dedicated to this app on many of the other phone specific threads here. While half the posts are raving about how great the app is, most of the complaints are battery use related and not very intelligently written. ie. alot of one liners like "sucks battery" The app has a few great effects that I love using and if I could get it to shut down, I'm fine that it might be a battery hog while it is running.
I installed the app again yesterday and used it to take four test shots then fully backed out using the back key on my dinc and used the quit button to quit the application. I then verified in "running apps" that the app was closed and went to check the battery usage and it was at about 43% for this app. I think time since unplug was about 8hrs.
I left the phone alone and plugged it in overnight. In the morning I unplugged and checked after about 5 minutes, It was still showing about 41% battery usage for Camera 360 compared with android system at about 45%, cell standby at about 20%, phone idle at about 20% and the others minimal at about 2%
It would seem that there is some process running that does not show in the running apps. Does anyone know what is going on with this thing? Is the app leaving something running that the DInc doesn't know how to deal with? Does the battery use indicator not know that this app is shut down? I can't get normal battery readings again until I uninstall this thing.
Any intelligent research on this subject would be appreciated. This app has the potential to be fantastic but with these unresolved issues it is really too much headache than it is worth.
