    I have just discovered the four finger gesture that let you scroll between opened apps and it works great. Is there a gesture to automatically close the apps?

    Draw all 5 fingers together, like a claw machine.

    What do I need to do with the 5 fingers?:D
    It does the same thing when I pinch with 4

    i only wish that you can scroll left and right instead of right only.

    I've been doing that for sometime now. The App window will close but if I check by either pressing the Home button x2 or sliding 4 fingers up on the screen I see they are still running. I then have to manually close them. :confused:

    Exactly, maybe I didnt explained what i'd want... I already use the "put ur app in the background" gesture. I'd want something that definitely closes the app

    Wow... I was looking for the meaning of the TEG acronym on google... after a minute of not finding anything that remotely made sense, I noticed your user name...

    Ok got it. The only reason to close apps is so u don't have to scroll 7 pages before u find what u want to open...and is there a way to get a preview on the sliding apps while scrolling with 4 fingers?Or is there a way to send the less used apps in the last page?

    As you use more apps, the previously used ones will automatically fall further in the list. You can't get a preview of the state the app is in, nor manually arrange them.

    No, they're not still running. That bar does not contain the currently running apps but the most recently used apps. Only one app can be currently running. Although some apps can have background services still running.
