    Default How many active frames do you have running on average?

    I am extremely curious as to how many active frames people have on average. I know the Verges review had a slight complaint about the 8 active frames limit - however I have yet to hit the 8 limit. I , on average, have no active frames running - but I can be at a maximum of 2-3 (never over that). I am just used to closing active frames once I dont need them. So that got me wondering how other people are using their BB10 phones (Z10 for now I guess).

    How many active frames do you have open on average? And what is the max you've had open? Ever exceeded the 8 limit?

    *Please note* I did not find a thread like this, hence I started a new one. So if it is duplicate thread let me know.

    I usually leave Twitter open or NHL Gamecenter if my team is playing.

    I don't think I have ever exceeded 4 apps.

    Have settings open, openwhatsapp, bbm, remember, hub++, browser, contacts and phone.
    When I open calendar I get stuffed.
    I'm sure this limit will be removed down the line.

    I don't keep active frames going...I have had up to 5 frames running at once but that was working on something specific for someone and they were closed as soon as I was done.
    I just don't like running things if I'm not using them...just seems wasteful.

    Not more than 4, but will close them as well after some time.
    When needed i just start the App..no need to keep them running forever.

    I usually don't leave any apps open. The only time I leave any open is when I'm actually switching between 2 or 3 apps.

    I've hit 6 a couple of times but for no real reason. Usually it's just 1-3. CB, BBM, and Stocks (during trading hours). Usually everything else gets closed when I'm done using it.

    I always have four running - BBM, Calendar, Remember, and AccuWeather. Anything else usually gets closed after I'm finished.

    Default Re: How many active frames do you have running on average?

    I've hit 8 before and had one close on me. can't remember what I was doing at the time though. usually, I always close the app but lately I've been trying to just leave them and see what happens. 4-6 is where I normally am.

    if I have to reboot, I always open and leave these three active: battery guru, neutron mp, and weather.

    3, maybe 4. Nothing mission critical runs in a frame for me. I do usually have a battery app, maybe BBM, music, or AccuWeather - that's about it.

    Oh! And CrackBerry.

    I typically close them but sometime j' get lazy and end up going up to 8. I think it's less battery consuming by leaving the most used applications open...

    2-3 .I usually closed them off after using them.I guess when more apps come I will keep the frames up.The hub pretty much shuts down Us opening FB,Twitter,calender whatever else.

    I dont have much open thanks to hub.

    2-3 if that. Lately its been battery guru, I'll leave fb open to refresh for new messages at times since I don't get notified of new messages on my z10 until well after they're sent. Sometimes beweather but for the most part I try to keep most apps closed. I think coming from older BlackBerry's old habits of conserveing memory die hard. Ha ha I'm sure I'll ease up the longer I have my Z10.

    I close very single one of them. Even when I was using my 9900 Bold. A nice habit, I reckon.

    Buy the Z10 because you choose to. Enough reason in itself.
