I don't have any app yet. so it won't bother me closing it.
But I always wanted to try, I will ask my brother how to do it. I only have this gadget with a purpose. I only want what is needed.
I have to disagree with some here who feel the open apps don't affect performance. I have a few formual heavy spreadsheets in Numbers and a few occasions I noticed that my fomulas were not updating. After I closed "open" apps, the formulas worked as intended.
I don't see any other performance issues, but no matter how small, it does require processing power to keep track of those "open" apps.
Thought I would post this here as well. Just shows the logic behind multitasking on iOS. As we all know its not a perfect system and some app must be close by hand on occasion.

You push up the bottom of your iPad screen with all 5 of your fingers or it won't work and you hold down an app and a red circle with a white minus symbol in the middle will appear, click it and the app will close.
You can also double tap the home button to bring up the multitasking bar.Originally Posted by Amy Rose The Hedgehog
