Closing running applications (task manager)


When you return to your menu, applications can continue running in the background. If prolonged, this activity can reduce battery life. You can stop an application running by using the task manager. It’s very simple:

  1. Touch the ‘square’ button (or double-click the home button if your phone is running a version of Android earlier than 5.1.1)
  2. With your finger, swipe applications that you want to stop to the left or right.
