    Anyone else have this happen? So lets say I have safari, mail and calendar as running apps. While I'm in safari I swipe up (i have auxo installed) to reveal mail and calendar in the app tray. If I dismiss (close) mail to leave only the calendar in the background and then swipe down again to dismiss the app tray (back into safari now). If I swipe between apps (zephyr) the mail app is still there. The mail app will sort of start off blank with a totally black screen and then after a second will load properly. Some sort of zephyr/auxo conflict?

    I've experienced that since zephyr first came out. It happens when you quickly close an app and then swipe from your active app to the recently closed app. If you wait a few seconds it'll remain closed and therefore won't swipe to the recently closed app. But if you don't wait but instead quickly swipe it'll reopen the app. Kind of annoying.

    I'm really fast on my phone (which is one of the reasons SwipeSelection can be really annoying but that's a whole nother topic). So I run into this problem fairly often with zephyr. Annoying but now that I know I just need to wait a little bit before swiping to the right to switch apps I hardly ever run into this weird issue. I'm not sure it's a bug with zephyr or if the default iOS behavior is that it takes a few seconds to fully close the app from the background. I think that's the case and its not zephyr per se. If you close a music app while its playing, it takes a second or two before the audio officially stops. I just think the iOS removes it from the tray immediately but it takes a couple more seconds to officially kill the app. Maybe chpwn can fix this with an update but I have a feeling this is the default behavior. We just don't see it because the icon is immediately removed from the tray when we kill an app.

    What do you think?

    Hmm, I'm not sure that's it. I just tried doing what you said. I waited a while after closing the app but I can still switch to it via zephyr. Do you also have auxo installed?

    The only way I can avoid this is pressing the home button to go back to the home screen.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Edit - I just disabled auxo temporarily and the problem is still there. Really hope other people with Zephyr can see if they have it too.

    Oh snap you're right. I also he to go to the Homescreen for the app to officially close otherwise I can just swipe over and the app will still be there even though its not in the app switcher any more. I hadn't seen this happen in a while. I thought I figured out a way to avoid it. Oh well.

    I can't get Zephyr to actually close an app. It just moves the app to the background and puts me on the home screen. Any ideas? I just swipe up from the bottom of my screen, right?

    That's what it's supposed to do. It doesn't kill apps. Just closes them.
