    I recently had a session at the Apple store to learn about my new iPad and iPhone. I was told that pressing the home button twice and then swiping up to close the apps that are open is similar to pressing control alt delete on a PC.
    Supposedly Apple recommends that the apps are to be left open.
    Any thoughts?

    Swiping up on the apps will quit them, yes.

    Honestly I very rarely quit anything on my iphone, except for the occasional app that may be glitching. Example: yesterday my facebook app stopping loading anything. I closed it and reopened it and all is good again.

    On my old iPad I keep very few apps running, but only because it is severely limited by its RAM.

    That's probably because you might lose progress in a game or data when you close the app. Apple don't you complaining that the device wiped the data and want a full refund.

    If an app is using up data in the background or something you'll want to close it anytime you aren't using it. Other than that, apps will "freeze" so it's fine to leave them open.
