A Daft Question re: Exiting Apps

    Hi there,

    Being incredibly disappointed with the battery life (even more disappointed than I had geared myself up to be having read reviews beforehand) of the Desire HD, I have been reading up on it lots over the last couple of days.

    The general consensus of this forum seems to be 'no' to app killers, which is fine, but my question (I said it was daft!) is how then does one close applications without it?! All previous 'phones have had nice convenient 'exit' or 'close' options on the menu or app itself, yet I can find nothing of the sort on any application on the Desire HD.

    Apologies and thanks =)

    Go to Menu=>settings=>applications There you can close the running applications... However it's actually better to leave some of the programs that you often use open, since it will consume more battery starting them up every time.

    I thought the same way about apps until I read a thread about the way the Android OS works. As far as I understand, having a program open in the background uses next to no resources. I'll see if I can find the thread again.
