– Managing background applications feels like Windows 3.1. If you install anything useful (Twitter, SportsTap, Facebook, etc etc), you will be installing an app that wants to be online 24/7, and on Android these apps can be as long as the phone has juice. And they will continue to do so until they run the phone out of juice. Don’t want them to kill your battery? You have to go to the settings of every single app, individually, and tweak the 5+ different settings (per app) on update frequency, etc. It’s also very confusing when certain apps run in the background. I have a SportsTap widget that will update me with sports scores, but it didn’t start working until I interacted with its widget. Now it’s telling me about things from last night (shouldn’t it already have?), and now I don’t know if I can stop it until it kills my battery (yes yes, there is a screen for that, but it’s buried and non-techies would never ever find it). Yes, it sucks having to switch apps and not be able to run background processes on the iPhone, but if this is the alternative, I’ll take the iPhone any day. Thanks Steve.
