    just downloaded the slacker app

    its good - go get it




    but there's a feature there that i think is good - haven't seen it elsewhere

    (not saying no one's done it yet, just that *I* haven't seen it)



    and here it is........ "quit"

    yep - select menu, then "quit"


    how nice of them! we don't need an app manager to kill it - it doesn't live in the background eroding away cpu cycles... it just QUITS




    anyway, that's all i wanted to say about that!
    :cool:

    Pandora also has a "quit" option.

    Don't know if that's new to an update, or if it actually "Quits" but it's there.

    I completely agree with you. Seems every device I've had in past (or at least 99%) have an option to close or exit an app. Who created the system with no way to actually end an app, that makes NO SENSE. IS it just the Android software always runs all installed apps? I don't get it.

    oh.. cool

    i just hadn't seen it on their's yet



    but that's a practice i'd love to see other devs emulate - seeing how sensitive (current) android phone performance is to memory usage

    Android development docs outline cleanly how to create an app that runs in the background, how to relinquish resources and make your app memory and user efficient. Since the focus is always on always running apps, I think this simple idea gets missed or ignored. There is also the 'bonus' that a running app, even if it's not doing anything at all but idling, loads faster the next time around, and developers will generally consider this a 'huge bonus' without thinking about the total cost of every app doing so.

    My favorite apps are certainly the ones I can 'quit' or 'exit' - I don't much mind waiting 2-3 seconds for something to launch that I only use a few times a day.

    coolness

    x2

    i think ppl kinda expect for things to take a sec or two to start up - that's not such a problem





    ppl *don't* like it when lag of 2, 3, 10, and (yes it happens) MORE seconds
