One of the most annoying things about Android is it wants to keep re-loading apps after i've shut them down.

This is seriously annoying.

Has anyone found a way of stopping apps from re-loading?

Just following up on this. These Apps are just using bandwidth, so it's really annoying to have them running when I don't need or want it. I'm deactivating the data mode when I don't need it so it'll be interesting to see what effect that has on data usage, whcih should be zero, and battery consumption, which should be much less.

Android takes away control from the user, and that is a bad thing, imho.

Yes, I've been using that great App for ages, but these are pernicious Apps that keep loading themselves, and I don't want them to. They include Google's own Apps.

What ever happened to the idea that the user loads the App when they want it!

In fact, i'm getting so annoyed by them doing so i'm seriously considering ending my relationship with Android.
