    Default Instant battery life increase

    Found a way to increase battery life. Unfortunately i have to uninstall my cb10 app because it kept updating with all the posts on the thread while the app on my iphone will only refresh once i got into the app itself. Anyone know how to disable the auto refresh? I love the cb10 app on my z10.

    I have also close the live tile for the cb10 app but it is still updating in the background.

    The battery improves drastically once i removed the app

    Really? That is horrible. So even when it isn't running it it sucking up battery?

    Uhh...no, BB10 currently doesn't allow apps that aren't in active frames to be running in the background except for apps made by blackberry themselves. The way it's doing that is through push notifications. That doesn't waste any battery. Relax.

    The background checks should only occur when the app is open or the active frame is visible (ie not when the screen is off or you are in another app). We don't have background permissions at the moment, and I don't think we will apply for it. Instead we plan to move to push notification later this month.

    I have had the app open all day and no noticeable change in battery life, but will be glad to assist you in troubleshooting this. Maybe the app got stuck on some loop.

    It does for me. I'm guessing it has push notifications.

    That's weird. My cb app actually does show the blackberry red sign thingie that indicates new items even when it isn't open. Maybe it's updating while it's open and I just notice until I use it the next time...

    I can confirm that it works for me. Why dont you try for 1 day and see whether it increases your battery life. I thought closing the app wont update anything but is still running in the background.

    Interesting. In installed it yesterday and my battery was like the first day I got the phone. It had been inreasing in battery life every day up until that point. I was wondering what the **** was going on.

    Closing this thread now that 1.2 is about to be released. It offers improvements in disabling background downloads, and changing the sync intervals.
