How can I know what apps are running in the background of Q10

My battery is not lasting more than 12 hours even though I'm moderately using it. How can I tell which applications are running in the background?

It's impossible to know, you can only see how much RAM is using the phone.

for the android apps you can use the free app named "advanced manager".

What "phone" do you have? Your profile states "5790" and there is no BlackBerry model 5790.

yes JSanders, the 5790 was released in 2004 apparently.

Re: How can I know what apps are running in the background of Q10

As of now, the BB10 does not allow any apps to run in the background unless they are baked in the OS or in the active frames. So if an app is not in a active frame, no app is running in the background. try maximizing your battery by switching to wif whenever you have a wifi network.

Re: How can I know what apps are running in the background of Q10

, it's actually a bit more complicated than that... there are currently some apps which can run "semi-headless" in the background. So, while what you've posted is true, there's more to it that just that.

 

And that's why the free app Advanced Manager can be used to see what might be.

Re: How can I know what apps are running in the background of Q10

JSanders, can you name a few available in the app world? It might be a useful piece of information for developing apps that monitor data, etc.
