    Why can't just close all of the apps at once????

    It's a two step process. To get the "close all apps at once" slider you must hold down the sleep button for about three seconds.

    And waiting for the "you're not really closing them" comments in 3... 2... 1...

    I don't understand this part of iOS multitasking.

    I don't like it and still bitter about it changing. ;)

    Those are your recently used applications. IIRC there are four states an application can be in. If an app isn't being currently used, with very few exceptions the apps in that list are either suspended and and only their state is saved using very little memory or (I can't remember the term - maybe Purged) where all of the application's memory footprint is reclaimed by iOS in a low memory situation.

    So they don't need to be closed, but they can be removed from that list which removes any memory that might be held for them (if they are suspended). The exception would be an application that's allowed to "run" in the background. I would consider that app to be closed when removed.

    I don't know, it just feels like I'm leaving my shoes untied.

    But I guess it works. I still don't know why you can't just quit all though.

    I have remove background from Cydia.


    Just one tap and all the multitasking apps are closed at once. Pointless at first but as I got used to it, it is an incredibly useful tweak.
