    In the title :)

    Sometimes I have literally 100’s of apps open in the background and hate having to individually close each one. Is there an app that shuts down all open apps in 1 click?

    Thanks

    Mmmmm, i think your best bet is a "memory manager" app. Its frees up memory aswell as closing all apps in the background (the icons will remain though). Probably not what your looking for, but cant think of any other method unless you jailbreak.
    I use "memory manager HD". Hope this helps :)

    It's almost there. As you say, frees up a ton of memory, but still keeps the icons active in the background.

    Thank you

    Unfortunately, the only way I know how to do this is to have a jail broken iPad and install one of a few tweaks from Cydia (e.g. Remove Background, KillBackground, etc.). I've not found any way that a stock iPad can do this.

    Sorry.

    A macro recorder is an application that records keystrokes and can play them back by clicking on an icon. I've used them on the PC in different OS's. I don't know if there are any for iPad yet. Just thought I would suggest.
