We can force an app to stop, which should only be used if the app does not react anymore, i.e. hangs up. "Force stop" stops the app like on a Windows PC with "Stop task".

One of the problems with this feature is that the app can no longer save all data before exiting. It is therefore possible that certain data is not saved or is saved incorrectly. It is also possible that the app will not work at all after exiting (which is rare).
