If you ask a busy professional what they accomplished this past week, they will likely say, “Where did the time go?” More recently smartphone users are asking, “Why does my battery die so fast?”
Smart phones are now an integral part of a user’s daily life at home and at work. Findings from a study called “The Mobile Movement: Understanding Smartphone Users” describe how consumer usage is growing quickly. The video below shows the growth among users.
One of my biggest complaints about the new Blackberry Bold 9900 is battery life. As phones become lighter and more powerful, bulky batteries of the past will continue getting smaller.
The Blackberry is well known for optimizing applications. However, third party apps are less efficient compared to built-in apps and drain your battery while running in the background. A new and free utility offered to Blackberry users, called Application Resource Monitor (ARM) was designed to extend battery life by automatically closing resource intensive apps.
For users who forget to close apps, battery life can be saved with the Application Resource Monitor utility. The utility also provides an option to receive notifications about apps that may drain the battery instead of automatically turning them off.
Many users are curious to know if there is an equivalent automatic utility for closing iPhone apps running in the background? Currently, Apple only allows apps to be closed manually one at a time by accessing the multitask bar. Please go here to learn how to manually close apps running in the background on your iPhone.
