Android: Flick to Close

Android users all know the drill – keep apps you’re not using closed to maximize battery life, processing power, etc., etc., etc…

…it’s our mantra!

So it’s often that we find ourselves holding the home button to open the App Manager and just hitting the “Close all” button to save time. ¬†Everything’s killed, and we can again go about trying to pass level 50 in Candy Crush Saga.

But what if you don’t want to commit app genocide? What if you want to close just one or two programs? Sure, you can tap and hold on the app and wait for the flyout window to pop up – thus allowing you to “Delete from list”, but that takes too long. At least I think it does…

Try this: Press and hold the home button to open the App Manager, and instead of any more tapping, just flick the app to one side or the other.  

Poof! The App is closed!

It’s faster, easier, and frankly a heck of a lot more fun than just tapping and holding all the time!

Give it a try today!
