What is the difference between cached background process and running process in manage apps section (for Android)? Elaboration and connected subquestions : Both are seen to occupy memory as seen in manage apps section. Do apps in either cached background process and running process occupy random memory? If an app as a running process is stopped sucessfully but runs as cached background process then would the free random memory not increase? as a result of stopping the same app as running process though it continues to be as a cached background process
