I JBd my 3.2.1 just like everyone else this morning and now I want to unlock the full potential of my device by enabling backgroundig of apps. What should I use? Kirikae, pro switcher, etc.

To be precise, there's only one backgrounder app, and that's backgrounder. The others are app/task switchers.

To answer your question, after trying all of them, I've actually decided to go with just backgrounder. I set it to activate on a double tap of the home button (otherwise it's too confusing with also having an iPhone on iOS 4 / native "multitasking"). I can tell which apps are backgrounded by the badge.

I believe he's asking about the iPad, not iPhone.

I like Pro Switcher a lot, personally. Circuitous would be next in line, but Pro Switcher looks a lot more polished even for an alpha.
