Close an open app

many newbies wondering how to close an app, a little reminder is probably not too: Android devices now have a page that displays all open applications. On most devices, you access it by clicking on the icon on the right in the menu bar. On others, you need to do a long press on the Home key: this is the case of the former Samsung for example.

how really close in the background on Android applications

If you insist with the word ‘really’, it’s for a good reason: on Android, like most of the other OS for that matter, some applications run always in the background. This means that, even if you have not opened, or if you shut them off with the above method, they continue to work. 

Fortunately, there is a way to know what applications are still “really” open:

  • go to settings > Applications (or Application Manager)

  • slide to the right in order to arrive on the tab current
