    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 using Total Wireless through Walmart & Tracfone. In the past few weeks I've noticed a huge battery drain causing me to recharge several times during the day. Before that I've only had to recharge during the day if using google maps on a trip. The drain is caused by mdnsd. A search tells me Mozilla Firefox and a drone app are the usual culprits neither of which I have. Can Firefox somehow be secretly loaded? I installed Pandora for a trip but uninstalled it afterward--could it be related to Pandora? Other than that the apps I have are Facebook, SavingStar, TWC Wifi Finder, Messenger, Kirklands, SpotCrime, AccuWeather, Meetup, QR&Barcode, Trulia, MyTWC, Kohl's, NYPost, Barclaycard, NissanServices, OfferUp. Anyone have any insights?

    Never mind. I very much dislike when I discover I just replied to a duplicate thread. Apparently AC has problems with fixing this crud!

    I turned off the mdnsd by turning off my location settings. It only came up when I turned it on the other day using Google maps. BTW I'm using a Note 2.

    There are others -- just search for "mdnsd," and you can find them easily.
