    hey I'm just wondering if there is a app for your device to access this forum on your android? , i tried looking on market but wasn't sure if the apps were for this certain forum.

    another thing which app do you suggest the most efficient for saving battery life and a app to help maintain a smooth performance on the device your using.

    Many thanks!

    Biggest battery hogs:

    - Screen
    - Processor
    - Radios (3G, Wifi, GPS, bluetooth)

    You can't do much about the first 2 ones, unless you don't use the device at all.

    But you can have Juice Defender to manage your wireless connections while you're not using it.

    The thing i heard about Juice defender is that it keeps your battery good during idle mode, but when you start using your device your battery percentage drops rapidly?
    I;m not sure if that's true or not.

    The free Juice Defender will manage your mobile data (3/4G). While the device is idle, it will shut down the connection, and, if you set it up for it, it'll make a quick connection each 15/30 min to refresh your e-mail, facebook, twitter, and whatever is set to auto-refresh.

    While the screen is on, it will restabilish connection and the battery will be drained as it would if you didn't have JD.

    That's a common mistake, JD barely takes any system resource.

    Tapatalk is the best forum browsing app. Well worth the $1.99 charge. Especially if you visit multiple forums.
