    When I double-click the home button to bring up the multitasking, then try to quickly swipe up to close apps, I find myself struggling to get them to swipe up. They instead tend to move side to side, and I really have to sit there and slowly swipe each one up carefully to make sure it swipes up instead of moving left and right.

    This is extremely annoying. Anyone else feel this should be fixed? Do others deal with this too, or am I just making a big deal out of something small?

    I agree that this is not as smooth as it should be. Apps that are "moving" from left to right have to come to a complete stop to push them up.
    I hope for small optimizations in 7.0.x...

    Do these APPS that were opened, CLOSE (END)?


    I am new to the iPad and iOS device scene, and I was wondering, when we swipe these APPS up, do they really "CLOSE - END"?

    As I have swiped them up, but I was thinking that they are "really still really actively, opened, and being stored in memory"?

    Is this the equivalent, (as best that it can be compared to), say closing (ending) a program on Mac OS X - "X" = End the program?

    Thanks for all comments and help..

    Appreciate your time and efforts to to help.. :)

    Have a nice day/evening,

    They do close fully and the memory is released. It's the cmd+q on the Mac. Most of the time you press the x but the app is still running, it's not like that in iOS. I believe it uses kill -9

    Its not a struggle to me but i do experience the tabs moving left/right instead of up when I do the gesture quickly.

    Sounds like it might be more related to gestures that are not exactly vertical upward swipes but are more diagonal perhaps where the OS might interpret them more as horizontal side swiping at times.
