Seems Froyo has Qik running in the background

    I found that Qik has been modified as part of this update and was running in the background trying to sync vmail and other features. I saw it was active when viewing the Running Services list. There were 2 Qik apps running in the background that I had to FC then reopen the Qik program, sign in, go to Menu/Settings and redo some stuff in there.

    Even when hitting the Exit button from Qik those 2 services would still run. The only way, I think, to NOT have them running is to completely sign out of your Qik account and leave it that way. If you want to use Qik then you'd have to sign in again each time. But once you do then those synchronizers run in the background even though you exit.

    I noticed on both our EVO's that the battery usage changed quite a bit since yesterday's update which had me scouring through all the settings to see what was up. I discovered the Qik stuff as well as the Sprint Zone settings had be reset to all services/notifications 'on' so I had to switch them off as well.

    Qik always ran in the background, as to receive video calls, even on Eclair.

    Qik and Fring both run in the background.

    In the two dozen or so times I viewed the Running Services before this update I never once saw either of those running.

    These services don't run on my device under Froyo. Qik is cached automatically, but it does not run services.
