    The Hero ROM is something which is being updated now and again and Donut is obviously a name you've heard related to this (a newer version of Android OS). These updates are normally released on the HTC website where you can go along and flash your phone.

    With apps, the only real way you have of exiting them is to press the Home or Back button. Not all apps are programmed to close down whenever this is executed though, so it's best to run an app killer once in a while to check for apps still running in the background which may slow the phone down.
