Yes, it does. If you're not using an app anymore and don't plan on for awhile, close it out. But say if it's messaging and you're going to get texts throughout the day, then yes it does drain your battery life because it takes more RAM to reopen the app back up again than already having it open in the first place.

It doesn't necessarily do it, but it can (more often to a smaller degree though).
