Episode 972 (1:46:56)

Rod from Shelby, MT
Droid Razr Maxx

Rod has a Razr Maxx Android smartphone. He wants to know how to kill applications once he's done with them. Leo says that with the recent versions of Android, killing apps is no longer necessary. The OS will stop the app once he exits from it. Leo says that RAM management isn't really an issue for Android. If RAM starts to run low, Android will automatically kill the oldest process if it's running in the background.
