    Hey folks, just a friendly tip here, reminding you that after a week or two, you may have downloaded and installed several apps here and there. One thing some forget, is that most apps install with full privileges, allowing them to run in the background.

    So make it a habit to check this often, go into battery saver, and "show apps with usage" or "show apps that can run in the background" and turn off those you don't really need running. You'll be surprised at how many sneak in sometimes...

    Today I looked, and "Tiny Troopers" was fully enabled to run in the background... lol yeah, I turned it off!

    Yeah..I do have this habit and it actually makes sense to bar those apps to run in the background which you actually don't want to.

    With most apps and games it does. That's their reason for running in the background.

    My question is..how does one reset the battery app stats? If I wanna start from a clean slate to truly track battery drainage, I would've loved to be able to rest the app itself.
