Checking and Terminating Background Apps in Your Android Device

One of the things that I dislike about the Android operating system is that you do not really know which apps are running in the background until you open the Task Manager. The Windows 8 operating system has the same issue actually when it comes to store apps that you run on the system.

The easiest way to check up on all apps, that is programs that you have installed on the phone or table, or that the device shipped with by default, is to open the Task Manager. To do that tap and hold the Home button of the device for a couple of seconds until the list of recently started applications appear.

The list of active applications is displayed here. Each app is listed with its name, the RAM and CPU it uses at that point in time. You can end select applications from here or all at once.
