Which of these apps, and themes drain battery?
It seems I get different battery life with different themes, also, I'll put a list of the apps I have on my phone below. I'd like to know which of those actually draining life without being used because they push or what not.
Themes I use -
HD OSXlike 9000 (best of the three)
HD se7en bold (just started using it)
iVista 2 (seems to KILL life)
Apps I use-
beejive (I'm signed on all day, so that's a clear drainer)
Facebook (not sure how that effects battery)
Weathereye(I'm sure it eats a bit)
etrade (doesn't push, you have to go on it and sign it to use it, so I doubt it does much if I'm not on it)
Opera (clearly just sits there when I'm not on it)
ESPN (clearly just sits there when I'm not on it)
BB app world
crackberry app store
So my question is, which of these are causing battery drain, and which seem to be the most efficient for others, I guess is my question.

beejive kills battery if you ahve a lot of contacts, cuz everytime someone signs on, off, changes their status or whatever, it sends a bit to your phone to let your phone know about the change. I have 350 contacts, so I use IM+ With push IM on. That way I don't get killed hehe. I also have beejive which I use for fast chats. hhehe...Hit the thanks

in computing, anything more complex takes up more memory and taxes power accordingly.Apple iPhone 6, 128GB

I have found that data-intensive applications, Google Maps for example, drain the batter. Some faster than others.
Apps that make the device work hard, will drain it faster than others.
Google Maps eats battery life for breakfast. On my device any how.
RIM has an an application resource monitor on App World. It monitors the devicebackground apps and will close it if it decides that its draining battery quickly, or taking up other resources. You can also configure an exception list.
Hope this helps
