Close MetaTrader for Android when you’re done

MetaTrader for Android is very useful (expecially with push notifications at every trade – it’s a bit tricky to set up, I will talk about it in future), but has an huge problem: if you keep it open, it will continue to poll data even with the screen locked and turned off, depleting the battery in few hours.
So, you need to always remember to close it by going back to home, because it does not detect inactivity and will continue to download tick data.
On the left the screenshot: it emptied my battery in two hours! I’m lucky that at work I have a microusb cable to recharge it…
