Hello all. Ive been reading about the general behaviour of android apps when a user uses the back button to return to the desktop (or whatever it may be called on a phone!).
Using the emulator i have noticed that while when using the back button each individual activitys onDestory() method is call, but when all activitys from a task have been removed, it's process still remains (unless i kill it using ddms)
Reading differnt forums it seems that everyone says its up to the developer to kill an app properly but i dont see any info on how to do this and or what nessercary, shall i just leave the process alone? Seems like a waste when there is no reason for it to be there.
One post said to look here AcitictyManager but it dosent really answer my questions above. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
