What's a "leaking app"

The battery on my phone keeps going down really quickly and a friend of a friend said I might have a "leaking app". What does that mean ?

An app that doesn't close. It keeps using resources even though it appears 'closed'... Sometimes you'll notice less available RAM, also etc etc... Or it uses unnecessarily much while in use. Can be poor coding, or a bug.
Did your phone start this recently? After you installed anything new? Or: how old is it? It could just be the battery declining with age.
