In the app bar on the bottom of the screen you press and hold the app icon until a little red circle with a minus sign appears at the top left corner of the icon. tap the little red minus circle and the app closes.

I love the speed of switching between apps as far as I am concerned that is what I wanted without loosing where i was in an app and as for utube etc It is not a part of my needs
me too no problem. its really great and easy
I think he was wanting to close all apps, not just one at a time.

When you press and hold an app in the switcher it will now have the usual "-" icon but also one on the bottom with an arrow pointing to the right. Tapping that arrow will close the app, but also all apps to the right of it too. Very handy. If you do it to the first app in the list, all apps are closed.
Better yet I have assigned apps to be excluded from that "mass closure." So they stay in the list unless I close them explicitly (using the "-" icon).
Finally I can have favorite apps that always appear in the switcher on the right... in the order I place them (not practical to have more than just a few). Very handy app... wish you didn't have to be jailbroken to get it.
Well I do have a lag on mine. It could be by design, it is a one tenth of a second delay. It is worst when I have lots of icons on one page. There is no lag when you switch pages so the argument that the device is not powerful to hanldle folders is flawed. The folders addition was poorly design with either time delay by design or by poor coding.
IMHO, if the biggest complaint is that it takes a tenth of a second to open a folder in 4.2.1, then Apple has done a fantastic job with this update.

So I couldn't wait and updated my iPad today.
A lot of cydia stuff is not working right now but I have to say qi love the new iOS!
I like the folders which work fluent, I like the app switcher and I also like the combined inbox. So far so good, I hope the cydia stuff will be updated soon but other than that every things fine!
1/10th of a second? Thats inexcusable.
It seems like as soon as Apple released this update, otherwise perfectly normal medium-intelligence people LOST THEIR MIND. I have seen more useless complaints in the last 24 hours on this forum than even right after the iPad was released.
1/10th of a second delay??!?!? OH MY GOD! ALERT THE PRESS! CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN! Or, you could sit back for a second and realize you are being waaayyyyyy too critical of an entire update because of a problem you are perceiving, but bothers virtually no one else.
