I wouldn't want to do this as there will probably users that say OMG my app that I didn't want shut down got closed and I have to re-do something! I bet some enterprising developer has made one though...Originally Posted by mortendall
There is a nice jailbreak tweak called RemoveBackground which clears all apps in the switcher at once exactly as you describe. You can link it to a gesture (such as a swipe), button press, or a toggle in sbsettings. One of my favourites, and another great reason to jailbreak!Originally Posted by GlenL
Also, closing an app should never result in dataloss of any significance. Most apps still save their state before they shut down cleanly...

XSysInfo can clean the iPad's memory completely. It cleans the RAM either when restarting, or by pressing the refresh button (circle) in the app. This is for non-jb devices.
The app icon's will still be in the Multitaskbar, but it is, as if they were closed.
added info about refresh button

^^^ that is an awesome app . Does so much more than just clean up . I can now get real numbers I've missed about using ios and under $2 American. It's like a reboot only in a second vs a minutes and I can see what my iPad is doing,real free memory and processes.
Once again you have affirmed why you are my Ipad hero.
Thank you so much.

Note also that some of the apps which you see at the bottom after double pressing Home, will also be using memory and therefore reducing the available memory for other apps to use. Strangely, the Apple apps are some of the worst offenders.
Reading this thread give me good insight into some of the ipad operations. Now i do realise, i got many many apps still operating in the background. With these information and closing those open apps, my ipad is running much smoother.
Thank and happy being forum member.
I ran into this forum looking for spreadsheet program advice, but have gotten very distracted by all of this useful information. Thanks everyone! I hope I can pull my weight here.Originally Posted by Mountainbikermark

i used xsysinfo to clear memory and this is what it solved for me.
I was watching a movie rental. It froze part way through the movie. When I went back to the home screen and then relaunched Videos, i was met by a blank/black screen. I couldn't get to the list of my movies, and I couldn't manipulate the frozen movie (which I assume was in memory even though the screen was black). I tried hard resetting. I tried to close the Video app completely by touch/hold and clicking the minus sign. None of that worked. I then used xsysinfo to clear memory on launch. That did the trick. Now I can see my Video lists again. yee haw thanks.
