    Guys,

    i have a few games on my phone that runs in the background and they drains battery, what i have been doing is every time when i am done playing i go into the settings -> App and "force stop" it

    just wondering if you guys have any quicker or automated way to force stop an app once closed

    why do you want to do this ?
    There is an option under developer settings which will kill all apps when you close them, however it will have a very negative impact on the performance of your phone

    The option you mean is kill Activity and that is ONLY recommended for development purposes. It does NOT have a direct negative impact on performance, but apps need to reinitialize every activity they leave what causes loading times and Force Closes

    because when i exit the game, it still runs in the background and drains about 5-10% battery per hour unless i force stop it.. i was just hoping for a easier way so i dont have to go into settings -> app -> scroll to the app -> [force stop] every time after i play a game

    Settings -> Developer Options -> check Kill App.
    Holding back button will kill the app instantaneously
