    Anyone discovered any apps they know sucks the life out of their battery? I use my phone regularly, Alphajax, texts, try to limit my background apps running to 5, not many phone calls. Wondering if anyone has noticed any particular apps that burn more battery than others.

    Here's the background tasks I have running. Accuweather, Battery Performance, Week View 8, TV Show and WP Central. I play Words with friends, Alphajax and Shuffle Party. Listen to steaming Xbox music in my car but I always have it on charge in my car. I've tried to follow forum directions to save battery life, no luck. I'm gonna call Verizon. This has happened since the day I got my 928.
