    It's not smooth when I close or open an app.

    I am jailbroken but only have 1 cydia app. I don't even have mobile substrate.

    Any tips on fixing this?

    Are you using one of the devices supported by Apple for multitasking?

    What's the one thing you have installed via Cydia.

    If it's bothering you that much, restore and see if that helps.

    Try closing the apps in the multitasking tray. Normally fixes the problems for me.

    Ok thanks. It gets better after hard reset. But then within a day or two again the same thing...

    im new to the iphone and found this. just sharing


    The much easier method now available in iOS 4 is to use the Multitasking bar to close any app you want. Here ‘s how:

    – Double tap the Home button to bring up the Multitasking bar

    – Press and hold anywhere on the multitasking bar until the icons on it start to wiggle.

    – While they are wiggling, each icon has a Minus sign symbol above it.

    – Press the Minus symbol above any app to close it down.

    That ‘s it. This will work for any app you want to close, including the Apple built-in apps like Mail and Safari etc.

    Hope this quick tip is helpful to some of you who are getting to know iOS 4.
