Did you know that if you don’t properly shut down applications, they could be running in the background on your phone? A few weeks ago, my friends over at the Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog told you about a great utility app from Research In Motion® (RIM®) that entered beta. Well, I’m happy to tell you that the Application Resource Monitor is out of beta and has landed as a free download for those running BlackBerry® OS 7.1 in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront.
This app is designed to run in the background, monitor and notify you when unused applications are running and using up device resources like memory and battery power. You can even adjust the settings to automatically shut down resource-draining apps. If you’re looking for tools that can help you get added efficiency from your BlackBerry smartphone battery, this is definitely one to add to your roster.
Have you been using this app in beta? Let us know how you liked it in the comments.
