    Hi everyone! Which do you think is better? I'm debating weather to download backgrounder with pro switcher or multiflow or just leave it. How's the battery life with backgrounder? Do you see a difference? And one more thing....if I download it, how would that work? With backgrounder and pro switcher AND Apples multitasking.

    Thanks in advanced!

    Thanks! This helped a lot, I'm going to leave and use apples multitasking. So far it's good but I wish ALL apps used it.

    Thanks again!

    I went ahead and turned multi tasking off on my iPhone 4 with MyOS to see a difference in battery life. I've noticed a slight increase; I can tell the phone runs a little faster when opening & closing applications.

    I like the multitasking. I think they did a pretty decent job on this and my battery tends to last me all day anyway.

    TiPb actually just released a Daily tip yesterday on how to get the best out of your iOS multitasking experience using both the native multitasking and Backgrounder. Daily Tip: How to customize iPhone and iPad multitasking [Jailbreak] | TiPb

    Backgrounder was very necessary under 3.x but I don't find myself wanting it in 4.x. The last state used thing naively does what I want and doesn't get closed on me. Backgrounder used to quit a lot when the OS needed memory.

    Now that all the apps I care about native support 4.x multitasking life is good and I don't need backgrounder at all. If you find yourself using backgrounder for something these days you should likely bug the dev for native support updates IMO.

    I just use the stock multitasker in combo with SwitcherPlus! SwitcherPlus lets you close all multitasked apps at once, except ones you specify it not to. I have it close all apps except email, phone, and bitesms! Works great!

    I have backgrounder running on my iPhone 4 but only for apps that dont support iOS4 multitasking, such as Twitter for iPhone. Via Backgrounder, Twitter keeps running in the background as well as updating my stream of tweets from those im following.
