I play a lot of games on my sam galaxy 3. My daughter walks up hits a button and it will sho w everygame I had just played. And she says I tokd you to close these out when ur done. Th she slides them off. Where is she finding this button????? I figured when I change game the app would close itself . Guess not.
In desktop it shows a "close" button. but when i run on android device (tablet) it doesn’t show the close button.
So all of the sudden, a long press of the home button won't give me the option to restart, or turn off the phone. And now, apps stay open, and won't close with the press of the home button. The only way to close them it to double tap the home button, and swipe them closed that way. Or hit the back button until I get back to the home menu.
Coming from the Original EVO 4G 1 day into this phone i am missing that menu button, most especially for closing apps. like when i'm browsing and i dont want to hi the back button 40+ times to close the browser.
I just got an Android Tablet. I have discovered that the way to close an application while TalkBack is not running is to press the Recent Apps button, select the app that you want to close and swipe to the right. However, this does not work while TalkBack is running.

In earlier versions of the Android OS I would use a task killer to keep things tidy and maximize battery life. It is my understanding, both from reading forums like this and talking with the Verizon rep, that task killers in recent versions of the OS are bad and should not be used. I bricked my first S3 and the rep told me it was caused by ATK.
