    View Running Processes

    Advertisement



    I've seen a bunch of people mention that one should close out an app by hitting the back key rather than the end key, because if one uses the end key the process is left running. I feel that I am pretty good about doing this, but I worry that I forget sometimes. I hate the thought of running processes using up my battery.

    So, is there any way to view a list of currently running processes? If not, then there should be.

    I do get a list which is similar to the application switcher present in all major OSs. But, it always displays the same apps, even if I close them out. For example, it will show my browser, but when I go to the browser and close it, then do alt>escape, the browser will still be there. This is the same for BB messenger, messages, and MyFaves.

    So, my feeling is that this function isn't only displaying running apps, but also frequently used apps. Or, something similar.

    But, if it does show all running apps, then it satisfies me.

    Thanks a lot!

    certain apps like bb browser are open by default and cannot be closed.

    Recommend setting left convenience key to 'Application Switcher', makes for faster, easier multitasking
