    Exclamation are ongoing apps the same as background apps or no .. ?

    in android 4.1 (give or take) are the "ongoing" apps the same as background apps? or are they a separate type of thing?

    im wondering because if i use a program that automatically ends (cleans) my apps, will it kill the apps listed in the "ongoing" tab of the pull down menu of the smartphone?
    or will it just kill the background apps and let the ongoing ones be .. ?


    thanks,

    It means basically the same thing, any apps you have opened are running in the background. They stay in your RAM until you clear them or reboot your phone, so they're basically always ongoing
