Clear All Suspended Apps Using a Swipe Gesture With 'SwipeAway'
One thing that most of us wish Apple would let us do already is close out of all suspended applications in the App Switcher with just a tap, a swipe, or something that didnít require multiple taps to close out of all the suspended applications.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed SwipeAway by iOS developer Sirifl0w adds the ability to close out of all the suspended applications in the App Switcher in a very native way that doesnít add any kind of extraneous buttons to the interface. The tweak allows you to either swipe up, or swipe down on an application icon while in 'jiggle' mode, depending on the swipe gesture you choose from the settings application:
You can adjust the gesture whenever you want to by simply selecting from the list and it will not require a respring each time you change it. The developer notes that you will achieve better performance if you choose the swipe up method, although we didn't notice any significant differences between the two.
As you perform your gesture, all of the applications will just disappear from plain sight and your multitasking App Switcher will be empty. This frees up all of the memory being used by suspended applications.
SwipeAway requires iOS 5 (it will not work on iOS 6) and is compatible with Zephyr. If you hate manually closing the suspended applications in the multitasking App Switcher and have been looking for a simple way to close them all in one gesture, SwipeAway is the tweak for you.
Requirements: iOS 5

Nice tweak. Kudos to the developer for making a tweak that has been done so many times but doing it this time in such a native way...

Apple really needs to implement some sort of way to clear all running apps.

It's terribly sluggish and the 'automatic' management is terrible. You would be better off handling the memory manually in my opinion.
Of course the iPhone 5's 1GB of memory makes it much harder to fill.

Animations become jittery, rough, and sluggish when too much memory is being used. The operating system cannot free memory fast enough for many of these processes.

that one day I went to the app Store, because (what a big surprise) my homebutton wasn't working. I asked that guy, why it happens so often, that the homebuttons stop working. He said, that I need to kill all the apps in the multitasking bar. If I won't than my homebutton will keep getting wracked...hahah he was for real!
