    Default App To Close Apps
    Is there one? It could be used to close Safari or the iPod when you're done using it to save power.

    Actually, I want to use it for Categories folders. I'm using the iNav theme and I don't like how the Games and Apps folders stay running in the background.

    So is there an app that will allow me to automatically terminate an app when I exit it? At the moment, I just use Processes, but it's just a little inconvenient.

    Thanks.

    SBsettings may do what you want.

    Or I can just ask the people at MMi if there's an app for that so I can just press the home button and have it done for me.

    The whole point of this is to make it more convenient and quicker. Holding down the home button for 5 seconds is 4 and 1/2 seconds longer than it could be if an app like this existed. And using processes just adds extra steps that would be, if said app was in existence, unnecessary.

    1. Backgrounder isn't running the app. It runs in the background on its own.
    2. It's not an app approved by Apple, so it doesn't have Apple's restrictions.
    3. The whole point is so I don't have to hold the home button down or use SBSettings and Processes.

    Please stop telling me to hold the home button down or use SBSettings! I already do that and it's not a solution to my problem!
