    I've read the very informative post about background prgms and the memory "footprint" a prgm may consume so to speak, but it still irks me to some degree.
    For instance, I'm on the fence abt functional synergetic apps such as BerryBuzz or LocationProfiler, both of which I find very nice but I don't know if I wanna make the jump as they sit in the background-waiting. The Bolds alarm clock for instance is set, programmed and executed all without being in the bkground (at least it doesn't show). Why doesn't BBsmart Alarms do the same? MissingLight shows up purple when there's a missed call, without backgrounding either.
    GMaps, Jivetalk run in the back and that's fine-they should and should consume memroy and battery accordingly. Viigo is a hog but that's common knowledge.
    This is just an OCD person requesting some peace of mind. Are these simple fucntionality apps worth the trouble?

    Thanks!

    That's purely up to you, the user. I use bblight. It's useful to me. Only you can decide whether any app is worth the cost to you.

    From my own experience the apps running in the background
    (Viigo notwithstanding) have very little effect on free memory.

    I have TellMe, BBLight and VibandRing running in addition to the
    5 that always run. My file free is normally 24-26mb. Rarely does it
    fall to less than 22mb.

    I just got berrybuzz a few days ago. Immediately noticed that my battery drains at a double rate. Shame. Doesn't affect my available memory all that much though...
