    App Battery Drain

    I have the WayALife app installed on my Samsung S3 running Android 4.4.2. I have noticed multiple times that if I start the app, view a few threads, then lock my phone, I'll come back in an hour or more and the battery has drained significantly. See this photo:

    I have had to Force Stop the app to get it to stop draining my battery. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not subscribed to any forums at this time. The first time I noticed this I was subscribed to the For Sale forum, so I unsubscribed. I have all notifications disabled in the App.

    I am subscribed to a good amount of forums and I check this app at least every hour and I haven't noticed any significant difference in battery loss but I have an iPhone so it could just be an android related problem🤔

    I know for iPhones there is a setting where you can disable the auto refresh (background app refresh) so it will not be constantly fetching data. I have it off for all my apps and it helps my battery ten fold. For the last 24 hours Wayalife has used 45% of my battery lol if I didn't have the app refresh off I'm sure it would be more

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
