Quit button in mobile gaming yes or no?

Hi Nathan, I know this is somehow outside the scope of this course but I would like to know what you think about a quit button in a mobile game.

There is the debate that it's not necessary in mobile gaming since you can press return in Android and apparently in iOS it's on the guidelines not to do it. (I'm not sure about this never did anything in iOS, just read it.) I did a small game for Android did not include a quit button and sometimes there were issues depending on the device...

What do you think about this subject? Thank you!

    It seems the convention is not to add quit buttons and let users either quit the app or switch away from it. I don't remember seeing one on a mobile game.
