or you know, turn off bluetooth and wifi
and anything else thats on that doesn't need to be

or just get a better phone that doesn't need to keep sending data back to apple every 2 minutes so they know when you're having a shit and which hand you're wiping with

The turning off the apps thing is an illusion.
Apps have 5 running modes, Active, Inactive, Susspended, Background & one more that I can't remember. When they're in (I think, I might be mixed up on some of these)...
- susspended, they aren't running any proccesses, so aren't using any battery life. Only memory, which gets diverted away from the app if it's not in use.
- Inactive: Not used or open or background or anything. Doesn't use anything.
- Active: Open fully and that's whats infront of you.
- Background: Still has push notifications, doesn't matter if its 'open' or not.
- The 5th one: Same as Active, but there is a lock screen infront of it.

It is very clever with it's memory and proccessor allocation. The bar should be reffered to as 'recently used' rather than 'multi-tasking'.

But you're spot on about Wifi and Bluetooth, and you can stop the reporting thing; I turned it off straight away.

I'll be honest, I accdiently stumbled across a video that explained this yesterday while I was in "OMG NEW TOY" mode, rather than knew it from one of my technical levels.
But as someone who plans to make an app someday, its handy to know. I feel being a smug iPhone developer is like putting on some well loved slippers, in that respect.

you should make an app which tells you the status of all the other apps
you could call it appapp

There is one for OSX which deletes them called ZapApp or something like that.
I could never hope to create a pun based app better than that.

Oh contree mon cherie.
I promise you, within 3 months, I shall have at least one of these suggestions done.

I hate to say this but my initial thoughts are to do a "brapp-brap", when you shake the phone it does the the finger-clapping thing and says a random sound like "YEAH' BOI'" and "SAFE BLUD".

how about an app that when you unplug the headphones
It plays a little animation of how to wrap them up so they don't get tangled.

It probably wouldn't have an amusing pun on the word 'app'in the name though.
