    How do you close out of these apps (MeotroRadio and Radio Controlled)? Whenever I log out and click the volume button it still shows the song as if the app is still running and ready to go. Won't this hurt battery life because they are constantly connected to the app since it won't close?

    Do these even effect battery life if they're doing this? I recently hard reset my Radar (suffered from this problem on my Arrive) because the battery life reader went to the pits randomly after doing nothing new.

    No, it will not hurt battery. It is really just a history. But, those apps do not have a proper stop button. You can get an app from the Market Place called Stop The Music, then you can run right afterwords and it will clear it. Hopefully they will be updated eventually and it will truly stop it and remove it from there.

    Find "Stop The Music" in the Marketplace. Works like a charm.

    Anything that is running, whether in suspended state or not hurts the battery. Only difference is, when in suspended state, it is minimal. I'm unsure about the music apps being suspended though. I believe that is one category that runs in the background like GPS apps.

    But if you back out of the app (tapping the back button repeatedly) the last song music history will have no effect on battery. Same as a tab in IE after closing IE.

    Can't you just kill the app by closing it in the background tasks? I know I had a game running for half a day it killed my battery. Once I stopped the background task it was fine.

    Radio Controlled dev here, I added a stop feature in the next update that removes the song from the audio player and the volume controls. I saw this thread and realized it was missing. Update coming soon.
