    You swipe the app cards up.

    Slide the picture of the app, above the app icon, towards the top of the screen:

    The four/five finger gesture can be used to show the multitask bar, not to close apps. You can close more than one at a time, though.

    Just to avoid misunderstandings: you performed the five finger swipe to show the multitask bar, and then swiped the thumbnails upwards with four/five fingers, like this:

    I just tried it with my iPad Air, and also on my iPad mini. I can use two or three fingers to slide them upwards, but it's not working with four.
    Force closing apps this way works on all iPads with iOS 7 installed.
