    Reboot the phone.
    Check the time and date are correct.

    I've no idea what "thingy" is though... Could be an official update, a custom ROM, a new version of the market... Bit more info probably needed, but the advice above usually works.

    What language do you run your phone in?

    I love the appearance of Android phones. But it is not so "user-friendly" i think.

    Depends on what phone you're using, which launcher you're using and which custom ROM (if any) you're using.

    Anyone fancy helping me?

    I use the Advanced Task Killer and I 'kill' all of my apps every hour or so, maybe often and it kind of bugs me that all these apps keep opening despite not even connected to the Internet!

    I also have apps like Maps or Facebook are green and never close and are using up my battery when I don't even want them open!

    Any suggestions?

    I don't quite know where Android's reputation for being user unfriendly has come from. Andrid is generally speaking no harder to use than iPhones or iPod touches (and since I had to spend 3 hours just to get my wifi to work with my iPod touch whereas android worked effortlessly by just putting the code in I'd argue Android is actually easier). I say generally on the basis that I know Orange is notorious for preloading redundant software on it's android phones that could genuinely confuse new users. For whatever reason Orange insists on pre-installing Orange Maps (a paid for service vastly inferior to Google Maps), Orange App Shop (vastly inferior to and vastly more expensive than Android market) a seperate email app, redundant free trials of games it then nags you to buy etc etc. However that's not representative of all android phones and generally speaking vanilla android phones or HTC/Samsung phones are not too bad as far as new users are concerned (though there is obviously a learning curve with any smartphone).

    You're probably using more battery constantly killing them than if you just left them running. In the background they may not even be using any battery at all. Stop using the Advanced Task Killer and leave the OS to do its job.

    There's not been any need whatsoever for task killing apps since Froyo, and they were still the spawn of satan before then.

    Hello does anyone else have a problem with Fall down Clasic. It has a red ball with green platforms. Most of the time it doesn't work and the ball just goes to the left. I got it from android market on my Sony Ericson Xperi X8. Anyone experienced similar problems with the app.

    Is there no TSR app for android phones?

    I looked at the android marketplace and there's nothing.

    If not, why don't TSR make one?

    Is there no chance of getting an update from them?

    Isn't/shouldn't there be a thread dedicated to a possible TSR Android app where we can all discuss it and put forward ideas?
