    ends up in the multitask bar. I know i can delete it indivitually but kind of annoying. Is there a way to just enable it individually instead of having all this junk i gotta disable?

    Multitasking isn't working right now so your recently used apps stay in the bar until you manually remove them. When multitasking is finally implemented then they will be removed automatically

    No, that's not the case. That's a fast app switching bar. Any app you open goes down there, multitasking or not. Even if a background app crashes/quits its icon will still stay down there.

    Every app you open will be down there until it fills up to its max (I have no idea what that max is). It's designed that way.

    That's the way it will be. It's a recently-used apps list. Things stay there, most recently used first, unless you delete them. It does absolutely no harm for them to be there; its just a quick way to switch apps without returning to the home screen.

    Well, it is true that no third-party apps, that I'm aware of, are currently utilizing 4.0's multitasking ability, and I think a lot of folks are confusing the app-switcher list with multitasking and vice versa.

    That said, the first-party/native apps already have backgrounding/multitasking/saved states/whatever-the-heck-you-wanna-call-it built in, as you can see by switching back and forth between iPod, Mail, Phone, SMS, Safari, Settings, App Store, etc.

    Fast-switch bar keeps track of ALL the apps you have open (including camera, Setting, etc). I noticed this morning that it cleared up over night so I had no apps showing in the bar this morning...
