Turn Off Apps Running in the Background?
I've been having trouble with a few apps lately, which is pretty good that it’s only a few, and Viddy is one of them. It can't seem to upload any videos or connect to Twitter after a recent update either on my 2012 Nexus 7 Tablet or on my ZTE Valet Android 4.1 phone. They said I should try it when all of the apps running in the background are turned off and the Viddy app is freshly reinstalled. They must think it has to do with available memory.
Here are the instructions they gave me for turning off the apps running in the background:
1.) Hold down the home button. Background apps will appear.
2.) Hold and slide applications to the corner of the screen until it disappears. Repeat until all open applications are gone.
3.) Press the home button.
Can someone please explain this to me? I assume that the Home button is the icon in the shape of a house which is at the bottom of the screen in the center. Is that correct? It can't be because it doesn't work for me. I'd really appreciate some input here. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
