I've recently "purchased" my first iPhone and I was wondering which kind of apps would slow down my iPhone.
(Purchased is between brackets because the company I work for actually paid half of it because I need a cellphone for work)
Currently I have purchased the TomTom western Europe app, some Van Dale dictionaries, Pages, Numbers, Keynote and Shazam.
Are any of these applications harming my battery life and/or decreasing my iPhone's speed?
And what's up with the multitasking? It isn't actually multitasking is it? In my eyes it just freezes an app until I reopen it, am I correct here? So if I am then basically it wouldn't decrease the battery life and speed if I keep all my apps open there?
I also found this article about it: http://speirs.org/blog/2012/1/2/misconceptions-about-ios-multitasking.html
Thanks in advance!

No matter what, the more applications you have running, the more quickly your battery will drain and slow down your phone. It's good to close any open applications you don't use and with iOS 5, that's easy to do. Any 3D games or productivity apps along with 3G or WiFi required applications will be the drainers. Not saying you shouldn't get those, but you should understand that it's those kind of applications that you should use less when you aren't able to charge your phone for a long time to preserve the battery. Another quick tip to saving battery is to lower the phone's brightness when you use it and to close any application before putting your phone on sleep.
