    I've hard reset, and even a clean install and no fix.

    When I have multiple apps open, say 2 or 3, I can click the home button "once" and it acts like a double click. Meaning, it takes me to the screen where I can swipe away or close the app. If I click it "once" again it takes me into the most recent app. If I click it "once" again it takes me back home. Weird right?

    Before updating yesterday my phone ran like a top. Today it's just annoying. iPhone 5 btw.

    I have 19 apps currently listed in the recently used app list and when I tap on the home button once, nothing happens. Try rebooting or as kch50428 suggested...

    There isn't anything in settings that fixes this. I've looked and looked.

    Now it's even more weird. I can click the home button once and it flashes back and forth through the last app and to where it can be closed. It goes back in forth maybe 3 or 4 times and then goes back to the home screen.

    Why does my home button acts in the manner of a double tap when I tap it once?-img_3191.jpgIt's all over Twitter too. We aren't alone. I knew I wasn't loosing my mind.

    I'm on a 4s & when I enter multitasking app switching by pressing home 2x it goes to card view to switch apps but nearly instantly zooms back into the app I was just in. Almost as if u just hit home again. A few tries makes it work, but didn't happen until upgrading to 8. I thought it could be hardware but it seems 8 related?

    Thinking about a clean install. Any ideas what caused this or how to fix it? Thanks

    I did a clean install and no fix. Hope next update fixes it. Or they do it on purpose to make people buy iPhone 6. Frustrating

    That sounds quite cynical. Could just be a sticky home button, and not a conspiracy.
