Manually closing apps in multi-tasking bar to get some apps to work
Has anyone had to close some apps in the multi-tasking bar/area before some apps will finish opening? For example Facebook. I have opened apps and it seems to stall, then i manually close some apps and then the other app finishes opening or finishes completing its process.

I've never had that. But I have had it where my phone was freezing and bogging down because of not regularly closing down apps that we're running in the multi task bar... I would like to see apple add a 'close all' feature when trying to shut down multiple apps in the multitask bar.
That is probably my most envied feature of my jail broken counter parts.

New to Apple and iPad2.
On the iPad2, how do you know if the apps displaying in the multitask bar are open or are they just displaying because they are the most recent apps that were used?
Most of the time I close each app with the 4 finger gesture but it shows up in the multitask bar along with any app I might not have closed.

Found this on a tech2hell website,
"When too many applications run in the background, they slow down the iPhone and use extra power. By closing these extra apps, users can extend the life of their battery’s charge and enjoy using a faster device. Background applications pile up on the iPhone because the phone does not completely shut them down after use. Instead, the iPhone keeps applications in an intermediate state so they will quickly start should users wish to return to them."
It makes sense that when this apps are 'suspended" in the background they are using up some of the RAM of the phone. I have seen it myself, my cowrker has a jailbroken iPhone. He has a Ram usage meter running and when he opens the multi task bar and uses another jail break app to shut down all apps running in the background his available RAM will shoot right back up.

:o ok, n00b question, what exactly is the four finger gesture to close an app? Lol. Is it your way of saying double tap home button, hold for wiggle, tap X and click home button again ?
