    Hello - I am having to charge my Gravity SMART a couple of times a day and was wondering if there is an APP that I can get (like I have on my IPAD2), to delete applications running in the background.

    Also wondering how to actually delete an APP that came with the phone.

    Many thanks! :D

    Hi

    The apps for killing apps are called task killers and they are not recommended for android phones as the system manages the apps to idle itself; task killers are said to drain your battery more (apps aren't actually running in the background; they are idle)

    You delete apps via manage applications but most of the apps that come with the phones are built in so can't be removed.


    Autosynch is a battery killer as is your screen brightness etc. If you go to the forum for your specific phone they probably have a whole thread of tips on how to optimise your battery.
