    Default SBSettings, wtf?
    Well I thought SBSettings was working ok.....but.
    Just tried it a few times, I check memory usage blah blah. Open, hit processes, check what apps are running. So far so good...
    I get a list, whether or not they are using too much memory I'm not sure, but I'll hit the red button next to the app, then delete, then 'free up memory'.
    After going back to home screen, I'll open SBS again, hit processes, I can see the same apps still there OR some have gone, completely random.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    same thing happens to me, even "free up memory" doesnt work, it just retracts and does nothing... i thought SBsetting was compatible with 4.0.1?

    Double click home button, delete those then see sbsettings, that's how it works for me.

    That's the Apple way of doing it. Whats the point of having that function in SBS? Sure, using home button then deleting frees up memory, I'm guessing thats what Apple intended....

    True, I thought it was just me....SBSettings acts the same way for me. Sometimes I'll even try and "free" up memory, only to get even less.

    Bigboss is a busy person and has always had a great reputation in regards to updating his apps for bug fixes. He may just need a little more time

    Yeah, I guessed that. Don't want to complain too much
    Actually I think the Apple multitasking sucks, having to use the home button so many times is surely going to break it. When SBS is sorted out, it'll be so much easier..

    I don't like the multi-tasking either. There needs to be a feature in the Settings app that allows you to choose which apps can/cannot be backgrounded. There is a Recents tweak in Cydia that clears all items that are not actually being multi-tasked. That way you can see what is actually running. It is a nice work around until someone mods the stock multi-tasking.

    It is automatic. Basically how Apple's 'multi-tasking' works is like this: when you open apps they drop down to the multi-tasking bar...whether they multi-task or not. So you end up with a slew off icons in the bar not knowing which ones actually are running in the background. Remove Recents gets rid of all of the apps that aren't actually running so you can see what is actually multi-tasking.

    SB Settings processes has always closed apps just fine for me with the exception of Phone and Mail which are not supposed to be closed.
