    Yeah I too use this, I have since ot came out, I changed it so I just double tap the taskbar (clock bar) to remove them, I have a different one on my daughters iPod that alows u to exclude apps from getting removed too, but I prefere mine for speed and ease of use!

    How 'bout a tweak where something like a three finger scroll down minimizes apps while tapping the home button closes them?
    Yeah that's a good point however I don't have that issue as I have Voice Commands DISABLED on my phone cause I don't use it and find it rather annoying.

    It almost seems like perhaps the iPhone is about due for the addition of another button

    One Tap Home = Close App
    Short Hold Home = Minimize App

    I mean honestly what kinda MORONS over there are Crapple was in charge of the multi-tasking feature and just decided "let's just make it background EVERYTHING"?? Boy and people try to say that Microsoft does dumb crap, I can't tell

    Nuff said!!
    You know that's not how iOS multitasking works right? It doesn't actually background everything. It suspends the application and resumes it when you reopen the app from the switcher. The switcher shows recently used apps, not currently backgrounded apps.

    Just goes to show how some of you can't escape the primitive thinking of having to memory manage for your OS.

    Anyone else start having issues with the update? Since installed my phone has been acting all sorts of strange. For example, photos disappearing from my library, won't connect to iPhoto, when my phone resprings, icons are all over the place then when I try to set them back in place they only "wiggle" for a few seconds before they automatically stop.

    I removed the killbackground app after some other troubleshooting and it seems my problem has gone away. Interesting. Real shame because I liked the app too.

    Newest update locks up my phone! Hit the button to close all and it dims, then nothing on the phone will respond and nothing further happens. Have to hard boot to get it to work.

    Tried re-installing and same thing.

    iPhone 4 on 4.0.1 - no problems with previous versions

    I use "RemoveBG" in SBSettings because it would seem to me the best solutions would avoid having to employ any mechanical functions on the phone. The buttons are quite often the first thing to go south on the phone.
