Last year I got my first smartphone, an LG Tribute. (I wanted an iPhone, but I went with Virgin and they didn’t have any.) I’m not entirely clear on how to turn apps off. There are three icons at the bottom of the screen: a ‘go back’ icon, a ‘home’ icon, and one that shows your open windows. To presumably turn apps off, I touch the ‘windows’ icon and then touch ‘clear all’. This closes all of the windows. But I’ve noticed that after clearing al of the windows, Waze will alert me to something. (‘Police ahead’, or something like that.) So I’m guessing that Waze is still running in the background. If Waze is running in the background, what else is?
Battery life on this phone is poor. It might last a day and a half between charges. I’d like to ensure nothing is running when I’m not using the phone.
Are apps running in the background even after I ‘clear all’?
If (1) is ‘yes’, how do I turn them off?
