BlackBerry Quickie: Save Your Battery by Shutting Down Apps

If you've been noticing that your BlackBerry's battery runs out of juice a bit quicker than it used to, it could be that some of your apps are still running, even after you think you've closed them. Check out this tip I learned over the weekend: to ensure proper shutdown of an app, exit through the menu, and either "exit," or "close," which will prevent them from sucking down your phone's battery. It'll save you time and frustration if you're found in an emergency without any battery life. And don't forget — if you can't get enough BlackBerry tips and tricks, check out part one and two of my BlackBerry tips series!
