    Why apps start themselves?

    I have a Toshiba Thrive and I wonder apps start themselves? Is this to help themselves in reporting data or to help the user? I am
    guessing it is a common problem because of the existance of app killer apps.

    Apps start themeself if they are programmed for this. About what applications you talk?

    Google maps, ezereader, galley (photo viewing) . Maps will load 2, 3, or 4 times while in airplane mode. This doesn't make a lot on sense to me.

    Maybe you have their widgets on one of the desktop? About google maps, this applications has some background services, like FriendLocation or NetworkLocation, you can disable it by logging out from this service, you have option for this under menu of maps application and other under Setings/Location and Security.
