Why can't we still kill all apps in one swoop?

    Even the single swipe up to delete apps are clunky. You have to be highly accurate in your swipe up to kill an app.

    iOS 7 needs to make everything more smooth and fast like iOS 6 and add the kill all feature.

    A7 64-bit can't kill all in one feature? C'mon man.

    Those apps are probably not even running. It's just a list.

    Rather than one swipe close all apps, can we have one tap close all notifications? Seriously, dismiss all notifications is nightmare on iOS... So much easier on Android in this case

    How could Apple miss such an important feature it's been mentioned so many times and nothing has been done about it

    They didn't miss it. It's just not an important feature. See the post above yours.

    I just leave them there and the newest ones appear on top. There is never a need to clear them. But I can understand why some people would want to, just because.

    not a fix for your problem but did you know you can swipe up to 3 at a time to close them?

    I can't pull that off to often but I do usually close 2 at a time.

    Uh, not really...but I agree with your overall point.

    You have to wait for the screen to free for swipe up. Not very Apple smooth. I want to swipe up right after I swipe left or right. Again, iOS 7 is so damn sluggish in every sense of the word.

    And after you do manage to close all of the apps (whether or not you really did or needed to) why must you press the home button or tap the screen?

    Seems logical to me that if no apps are showing in the multi-task bar, then viewing the home screen is the only thing you can do at this point.

    This has been asked many, many times.

    Unused RAM is wasted RAM.

    Do some reading on background services in iOS, it'll make this entire conversation irrelevant.

    Unused ram can be used to open new app with killing background apps. I try to only keep tapatalk running when I'm using it because it's frustrating for it to close and I lose whatever I'm doing.

    That's not unique to iOS 7 (except, obviously, for the multitasking screen). On iOS 6 when scrolling you need to stop the scroll before the screen registers a subsequent tap.

    As has been pointed out, it seems most folks don't have a need (versus a want) to close apps. I only close apps if they hang, which is rare (in my experience.)

    Because you don't need to. I know it'll be hard, but just don't do it and after a few days you'll be a much happier person and can laugh at everyone that freaks out about closing all their apps. iOS is designed so you don't have to worry about it.

    Not entirely true. There are apps that continue to run until the user closes it. Additionally, i prefer to use the recently-used-apps list like the alt-tab on Mac showing only those I am currently using instead of all apps.

    And you're missing mine. I probably didn't articulate it well enough, but I'm done with this thread.

    I like the way it sounds. I think I'm gonna start using that. I just "killed all apps, with one swoop", instead of saying I just "killed two birds with one stone".
