    I have noticed that some apps do not close properly when you think they have closed and they then kill the battery.

    I am wondering if anyone has made an application that would see those still running apps and let me kill them completely?

    Thanks!

    Activity monitor is the right application, but you can also press Option-Command-Escape to force quit something (with it handily telling you what is 'not responding'.)

    You can get that by clicking on the Apple in the menu bar and choosing force quit, as well, if you don't want to remember Cmd-Opt-Esc

    free memory, istat are two iphone apps that could do what you want. However if you wanna quit any app, for sure. Hold in the home button while you are inside the app. It will kill the app completly.

    When I click on the home button it closes out an app that I am in. So you are saying that if I hold the button down for a few seconds it will make sure that it does close?

    Yes.

    Hold it down until the springboard shows up. That's the equivalent of force-quit.
