May I ask a dumb question? Rolling Eyes

When I set off, I activate CamerAlert (iPhone) by tapping the app, letting it activate, then letting the phone go back to sleep. Yes?
But how do I tell CA I don't need it anymore, e.g. when I get home?

Told you it was dumb...

Quit the app... Double click the home button & then slide through displayed apps selecting CA sliding it up & off screen.

@abre
Well I never knew that! Thank you. Presumably one only has to do that to apps that remain live in the background.

Yes, iOS sleeps all apps that are not permitted in Apple's app dev rules to remain active in the background. It's a simple power saving function and kicks in shortly after the device screen sleeps or another app is selected.

I've looked through all the CA bumph and not found any reference to how to properly quit the app. I use it in list mode, so that the app / phone comes alive only when a relevant POI comes up. In other words it looks asleep but isn't. That's why it occurred to me to ask how to definitively quit it. Thanks again - if MaFt is around perhaps he could comment?

Just done a bit more trawling and found this thread:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=87815

It seems that CA auto-quits after a period of a few minutes of "non-movement" (thought to be 10 minutes), but it's all a bit of a mystery for users as there's no documentation.
