    Does anyone have Trapster App? I didn't know this app runs in the background all the time even in standby mode with iOS4? It drained the battery like crazy.

    its updated for iOS 4.0 and if I remember correctly it said it would auto update your location.

    I use trapster pretty frequently too, and it seems you need to turn off location services when your done using the app.

    But I didn't know location will be constantly updated even when in standby mode. It keeps warning me about red light camera. I actually like it that way so it saves the battery a little bit with screen off. Just a warning to everyone with this app and iOS4. the only way to completely turn it off is kill in multitask bar.

    Agreed. It killed like 25% on the way to work in 30 minutes of driving. You can only kill it in the multitask bar.
