    Default Stopping Apps?

    Feel kinda of silly asking, but is there any other way of stopping app that are running, besides going into settings...

    Well, keep in mind Android likes having apps in memory. Unlike Windows, having the apps already in memory helps them to load faster, due to less data they have to reload everytime the app is closed out.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    I always thought so too, but if you do that and then open a task manager app still in memory. So now I'm no longer sure that really stops the app.

    so, yeah, I appreciate the info in those articles but really am no more the wiser. l've taught my 8yo nephew to swipe away every so often, and he's actually very attentive to the process. We don't bother with killing through settings or any task mngr, just swipe away. Very rarely reboot. So, what's the best practice? Maybe just swipe away nightly? Or just seldom used? He likes to play games, sometimes he'll play one a long time, sometimes he'll play numerous games for a short time each. If I tell him not to worry about it, I'm sure I won't have to tell him twice. I'd like him to have a routine and to treat his tablet with care afforded a grown-up toy/tool.

    wrong!!! watch the video below.
    There are 2 type of app
    1. Normal (will close if you close recent)
    2. Service Apps (just like windows service which will reopen after you close it) but the app part can still be closed
