    How do you know you have left an app open? How do you close one? I have been reading leaving apps open drains the battery. My battery last 10 hours at least and as far as I know I never close my apps.

    I never actually close them either, but I read that it will slow your device, so since the upgrade I've tried to check on the multi-task bar and close occasionally.

    I usually don't worry about it until the evening. I close all my apps out and run an app called SystemInfo to "clean up" the iPad. Then, I shut it down and plug it in. It turns back on after plugging it in, but I don't worry about it. This way, I start the day "fresh" with a fully charged iPad.

    Close apps

    Double click on the button. Press any of the apps and then click on the X in the upper left hand corner to close the apps. I TRY to do this daily but not that diligent.

    I don't pay any attention to what is open throughout the day, but I do go in and close everything at the end of the day when I go to bed.

    I don't get this. Shitums. I must be out of the loop. There is no x in the upper left had corner.:confused:

    Unless you hold it until it wiggled, but that would delete the app.

    I'm lost.:(

    When you double-click on the button, the screen shifts up a little bit exposing the apps that are running. Press on one of them and press the X, exactly the same as deleting an app from a screen, and it will close the app.

    To be concise, hold down the apps in the bottom bar until they start shaking. The icon is actually a "-" not an "x" that comes up in the upper left. Click the "-" to delete the apps you want to close.

    Okay. Bear with me. I feel like idiot!

    I did this:

    Double tapped home button. The the new tool bar opens with apps there. When I hold one of them, they all have little red minus sings, not x's.

    And they do wiggle.

    Am I getting this a little? There are a lot of apps there in that row when I swipe. They are all open?
