Aibu to be upset my husband this morning for being the soppy thing that he is. The numpty put my phone on charge last night after I fell asleep and swiped away all my apps(coz he's a phone natzi) and he closed down the woo thread I was reading!! I spent most of my day scaring the pants of myself and still had loads left to read so I left the app running and now he's swiped it away it's gone and I can't find it!!

Tell him to stay off your phone.

What's 'soppy' about that?!

Why on earth did he swipe away all your apps?

SillyMoomin Tue 29-Nov-16 07:11:40

Kind of him to put your phone on charge- but why would that mean he has to open the phone and swipe away everything? confused

Half kindness. Half weirdness

Incompetent maybe, not soppy!

Is it an iPhone? Check your history, the thread link will be in there.

It's nice of him to charge your phone, that is soppy smile

Soppy? hmm

Ahickiefromkinickie Tue 29-Nov-16 07:20:29

I think some people like clearing apps away as it means they aren't using battery.

Plus it feels like a clean slate.

Sounds controlling and nosey more than soppy. Tell him to leave your phone alone!

Dormant apps don't use battery.

53 i'm not sure if they do or not, but I know a few ppl who like clearing away apps for that reason.

Bloody nosey and annoying more like, sounds like putting it on charge was an excuse to snoop around on your phone, tell him to leave it alone!

I'm reading that, it's in this thread- how do I link it for you......?

This post was meant in jest everyone. He's in no way controlling. He works for a phone company and is always tinkering with my phone. It's our first year wedding anniversary tomorrow and I love these little quirky things he does. It's more that I know exactly the thought process he had
'Apollo fell asleep reading her phone. She hasn't put it on charge. I bet she has a thousands apps open again. •sigh• swipe swipe swipe. All clean. Fixed it for her'

I believe "soppy" can be used in the sense of "daft". It might be a regional thing. My nan was a Londoner and if you did anything daft she'd call you a soppy date.

Bloody annoying.

Quirky now, in 10 years infuriating.

it wasn't him...

It was the ghost! 👻👻👻👻👻👻

Dormant apps don't use battery.

They can - if you leave Pokemon Go or Google Maps on in the background they suck battery. You can almost see it going down. Maybe that's because they're tracking location constantly though

Apps in the background do not use battery, killing them and the re-loading them uses battery wink

53rdAndBird Tue 29-Nov-16 07:57:57

You're more patient than me! I'd go ballistic if my husband went round closing apps on my phone, especially when I was in the middle of reading something. Does he take bookmarks out of books to make them look neater, too? grin

53rdAndBird Tue 29-Nov-16 07:59:31

Yeah, anything that's actively using location services will drain your battery. But dormant apps just sitting there in the background won't. You'll use more battery by swiping them all closed, then reopening them when you want to look at things.
