Yeah, that is pretty crappy. I have iOS5.01 on my iPhone 4, and I make it through a day just fine, and I leave everything on, but I don't use the company public wifi because it is connected to one DSL line and there are a couple hundred people on it. It's faster to use the 3 bars I get for 3g if I keep the phone in one specific place.

Each application is going to be different, but things to think about are:
1) graphics - Games (especially high-end games like Infinity Blade) tend to use quite a bit of processing power and RAM. 15 minutes of gaming can make a dramatic drop in your battery.
2) Anything that requires a connection. If the app needs to talk to a server or use gps, then it's going to drain a little more than an "offline" app in most cases.
3) Actually, I cannot think of a third thing. Most of the battery hogs fall into the 2 categories above.
I understand. Thank you so much. I learn a lot from your posts.
