Apps Stop Working / Disappear

NOTE: this is not icons dissapears off home pages, nor "crash" with a error message.

Very often, apps will just stop and no longer be active (for example, Maps will be navigating, then next time i look down it's no longer running and i have to open it and retype in address). The same happens with PocketCast, Spotify, Pandora, etc. Anything that typically runs in the background will just disappear. No crash error message. No visible reason, it just "isn't" anymore. No regularity too it though - for example, PocketCast stopped 3 times in 15 minutes this morning, but some times it'll run for 30-45 minutes.

Is this a virus of some sort, a problem with my phone setup (Nova Launcher and Samsung S5 Verizon), or just odd.

Re: Apps Stop Working / Disappear

A few questions that might help pinpoint your issue

- Are you rooted?
- Is this the stock Samsung ROM?
- Are you running Greenify?
- Are you running any "cleaner" apps like SDMaid, App killers, RAM recovery. etc...?
