hmm, makes sense. Initially I had killed off the allow gps locations from the settings tab itself but now I've enabled it but don't have any app for maps/latitude or anything open. I might forgo the app killer for now. figure it out later I suppose.
I have realized though, while reading app reviews such as facebook and skype that they dont always seem to work and skype in particular is quite a battery drainer! sigh!
Am still curious about lookout and such for lost phones coz that is something that does tend to happen...
