I agree - the App is not really closed - and that's the reason for the problem. But this seems not to be device specific. It probably happens on all devices. I have used it on a Samsung Tablet 10.1, an S3, a Huawei G-700 and a Nexus 7. They all behave the same way and I assume that this is how Android handles theses 'exited' Apps in general.
But anyway. If someone closes SD he obviously does not want to use the App any more for now - and even does not want to navigate as well. So why not close the IP connection? It will be useless anyway.
If you tap on this 'closed' App lateron, it even does not look as if it is re-used in some way. It comes up with a new welcome screen and behaves exactly the same way as if you tap on the blue ball icon on the 'desktop' to open a fresh instance from there.
With this said, I think it makes absolute sense to close the IP connection thru SD code when closing/exiting the App using the back button. From my point of view this could probably be done the same way which is used when explicitly ending navigation mode via the 'Stop Navigating' option. Then we would have a clean IP condition when the user decides to use SD again. Whether from the 'Desktop' or from the list of (not really...) 'closed' Apps.
What do you think?
