    Hey guys.

    This question is for all the tiny tower players out there. Is there a difference in battery life if you minimize vs actually closing this game app? I have notifications turned on and even when I close the game (not minimize) I still get a notification alert, soo the game is still running??

    Does anyone know if this game actually closes and do you guys notice more of a battery decrease while having this game on your device? I feel like I'm going through battery more but maybe it's from me having the device on more while playing the game. As of right now I'm at 36% battery with 8.5 hours standby and 6 hours of usage.

    It's definitely eating more battery when minimized so I've been closing it. I also turned notifications off as soon as I installed it.

    My iPhone 4 battery can't stand your usage and standby time without playing any 3d games (just texting and voice).
    So, you still have awesome battery life.

    I just leave it minimised, but I don't play it much anymore. It gets boring after so many floors! Still trying to get a Mapple Store though, will stop after that!

    I usually minimize Tiny Tower when not playing. It will go into a frozen state if you minimize so it will not drain the battery. I haven't experienced battery drain just from checking tiny tower. I also only check tiny tower every hour. Even though I do have notification turned on, it only sends me one notification telling me that floor # is complete and ready to stock.
