Thanks for clarifying that Graham. Very helpful indeed. Whether or not there's any settings menu, or sync options tho' seems to be up to the app's authors. I see for many apps there's no settings menu at all. Adobe Reader for one. And the culprit that got me started on this, an old copy of Astro File Manager that was ad-free, has nothing in it's 'Preferences' pertaining to whatever is calling for a connection to the net, and completely disables the program unless it has that connection.
