Food for thought...
Some apps actually do have a "quit" or "close" option. Pandora has a quit, otherwise how would you get it to stop playing (unless you use a task killer to kill it)? The Dolphin Browser has a few options when you long-press the back soft button. Cool.
Having said that, most apps don't need closed or killed at all. Yes, this is a Linux-based O/S ... not like Windows at all. There really isn't any "need" to close or kill apps.
BUT ... (there's always a "but", isn't there?
) I don't think anyone can say that using a Task Killer could hurt anything. I am OCD, guilty! And, I am old skool, GUILTY! And I like going into "Advanced Task Killer Free" periodically and killing most, if not all the running apps. There are some apps that I have set to be ignored so they never get killed. But others, I want them killed when I want them killed . . . DANG IT!!!
All to say, it's up to you man. It's your world ... ROCK IT!
RAZR Maxx ... Love it!
