    Hi all,

    I think this might be a an obvious answer but thought I'd ask anyway.

    Since getting my iPhone 4 I've been launching applications by double tapping Home and selecting the application from the recents list (I tend to use the same applications most of the time). This is my preferred way of launching applications and will only launch them from the springboard if they're not already running (rarely). So for example, I'll wake up in the morning and I'll double tap the home button and select Mail instead of selecting mail from the springboard.

    My question is: are there any disadvantages (performance wise) to doing this than going the conventional route of selecting the application from the springboard?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. It is no different whether you launch from springboard or the app switcher. The app switcher has nothing to do with multi-tasking - it is merely a list of recently used programs that may or may not be running. The only thing it has to do with multi-tasking is that by removing programs from the list they will be shut down IF they were running.

    Excellent, that's what I thought. Thanks for clearing that up!
