    Do you normally kill off apps from the multi-task drawer on your iPad2?

    Every Apple store we have been to has told us we should do this every few days. They told us they get many people coming in saying their iPad is slow, only to have that be the reason.

    It doesn't seem correct that one would need to do this that often. We also have another tablet (not an Apple) and never bother with its multi-task drawer and all is fine.

    Appreciate to know what others experience is.

    Thanks

    I have like a OCD clearing my task bar, my wife on the other hand never clears hers, and she never has any issues so I think u don't need to worry about it slowing things down much we both have a iPhone 4 , I do keep what ever I am messing with at the time open in it though since its so quick to jump between the apps

    I had to do it often on my iPad 1, but my iPad 2 gets by without me doing it.

    Same here. I know it doesn't really do any harm to leave the apps in the drawer, but I feel compelled to clean them out once in a while.

    I clear mine out every couple hours. Its the OCD in me. For sure though it's the last thing I do every night before I go to bed.

    Not too often, perhaps once a week or so. I don't normally notice any slowdown the memory management of iOS has all ways been really good, most things are handled automatically.

    I probably don't need to do it each week, I just do it as a bit of a geeky OCD

    I'm pretty much the same way. Whenever I think of it I close everything out. Usually every few hours.

    No. I've never really found a reason why I should.

    I just feel uncomfortable leaving apps all open and unused. I close them out often.

    Same here, I clear them often only because it bugs me. Never had it slow my iPad 2 or iPhone 4 down.

    Nope.

    Why? Polling others to see what's popular seems pointless to me unless you're just trying to fit in with the crowd. Do what you want.

    I do but I also have OCD. I guess do it only if you feel a difference.

    Yep. Does slightly help battery life even though they are "frozen" in place. I'm sure it still takes resources to freeze them in place.

    I clear my iPhone 4 regularly but not so much with my iPad 2. That one gets cleared whenever I remember. Haven't really had any issues.

    I close mine all the time. When my kids are on them they know to do the same. I do the same with my i4 also.

    I cleared mine the moment I saw the post. Like the others I have a bit of an OCD Task clearing tick. Good to see so many others in the club.

    Nope. There are quite a few articles online saying that it does absolutely nothing.

    Not often I say once every couple of weeks. Doesn't seem to slow down my iPad so I'm good!

    I clear mine from time to time mainly to kill an app that isn't working properly.
