    Anybody notice that the Phandroid app seems to like staying open in the background and hogs about 28megs of ram? App killers even when rooted will not keep it killed. The Task Manager built into the D3 seems to kill it (but only manual), but that is about it. Tried the semi-placebo apps like the Auto run managers too, but they seem to not work for anything anyway.

    I sent a note to the admin to please mod the app so it does not force itslelf to remain open if PM notifications and syncing are turned off in the app's settings.

    Like the app, but it takes up about six times the average app that runs in the background. Was this originally a Windows app? ;)

    Tapatalk does not force staying open and takes up a lot less ram. I remember when this site worked with Tapatalk...... Now that is a nice app, plus has dark background options for night mode.

    Phandroid app needs a 2.0 release.

    World Newspapers takes up 98mb, but does not force staying open.
