Close Applications Does Not Improve the Autonomy, Nor on Android or iOS

Difficult to explain that feeling that you get when you close the app still present in the background on your smartphone, such as picking a table after a meal or to tidy their room.However this apparent digital cleaning operation is needless, and indeed, rather your energy consumption the worsens, saying that there were two direct interested like Apple and Google.

Last to speak of the argument was the VP of Engineering for Android, Hiroshi Lockheimer,authoritative confirmation that aim to change beliefs fictitious created in this last decade of digital development. To explain why you have to go into more detail and analyze the operation of multitasking, applications can be divided into 5 ‘ States ‘, both on iOS is on Android: the first is the non-functioning, when has not been called into question.

Follows the active mode, that is, when we are using the App and have it on the screen, followed by the inactivity — a transition phase when it is still on display but there are no direct business related. Then there’s the background when the application is still in progress but do not view directly, works Let’s say ‘ behind the scenes ‘, bringing us notifications as mail and messages. Finally we have a suspended state, i.e. when the App is in the background and not doing anything, ‘ sitting ‘ on its memory blocks.

These two mobile platforms, Android and iOS, have evolved a lot over the years and have a good management of volatile memory, for this systems automatically close applications that should be closed by allocating memory where you need it. How many will have directly tested, open an application that is already in memory is faster than an opening from scratch, the information is in fact already in memory (as long as you have enough) and the energy required is therefore lower.

Ultimately, stop delight in these swipe purifiers, certainly not help you in saving battery and get through the day.
