The real question is: why would you need that tweak?

iOS handles all of this by itself. And it does that very well.

That's not true, since killings bk apps, got more free ram and no more crashing apps! 6+

The OP asked what app killer was working for iOS 8. Why is it that in every thread there has to be a debate?

I'm using ccsettings and kill my apps once a day before I go to bed...

Maybe he likes to kill things lol?

I use ccsettings for more than just app killing, has many useful toggles. But the convenience of taping a button once instead of swiping 2 fingers up your screen 40 times sums it up.

But I ain't compulsive about it, I don't check my usage every time I turn my phone on either. iOS does run better with apps left in the switcher and it consumes more battery if you repeatedly kill kill kill...

I'm not trying to start a debate, I was just wondering why the OP would need such a tweak.

RAM an battery saver. sometimes you dont realize you have apps still running in the background draining batery and using up ram. easier to kill all with one click than to rifle through the app switcher to close

Sorry but you are wrong. I've been noticing more and more than having multiple apps (especially games) will significantly slow down my iphone 6. It is a limitation of RAM and it's very real regardless what you WANT to believe.

For me it's my OCD... I don't like a bunch of stuff running in the background, be it on my phone or my computer. Drives me nuts when I see someone's safari with 20 tabs open. It's so pointless. It's not like an app loads any quicker when it's open in the background vs opening it when you need it. I love to kill all apps.

And contrary to what many think, Apple's task management isn't as amazing as stated. It waits until the last second to take over resources.

And if nothing else, I don't want to have to swipe to the right through 20 open apps to find the one I'm looking to switch to. LOL

Need more reasons?

I've never thought it does it well enough. Even back in my stock iOS 7.x days, I would get a low memory crash with a respring on my iPhone 5s, when taking a photo.

The only app which will run in background that you can actually prevent from running in Facebook though
