    Hi all
    I am wondering, I have the Iphone 4 with the latest software on it. I am just wanting to know if anyone else seems to notice if the battery level goes down quickely with apps showing on the multitasking section of the iphone? Or is it just me?

    thanks in advance

    I don't notice it, but logic would indicate that more apps "open" would increase draw on the battery.

    You wouldn't notice it for normal programs but others, especially those which communicate with data links or use GPS, might be different.

    Skype for example should always closed after use or setup to log-off automatically after use.
