    I said it was tedious, not just inconvenient. Anything you have to do repeatedly can be tedious, any taking only a split-second makes it worse.

    Maybe I'm spoiled by Windows, where switching to another open app takes one click, and closing one takes two.

    Makes sense, and although it's not an apples to apples comparison (pun intended) the difference between switching between programs/apps in Windows and iOS is that the Windows programs continue to run in the background using energy and resources including memory, CPU, etc. and generally speaking iOS apps that aren't being used do not. That improves performance, battery life and so on. Two different ways of doing things certainly and it does take a bit of getting used to but hopefully some of the suggestions were helpful.

    I agree with you. Apparently apple users here aren't aware of how efficient Windows can be. What you described is the number one thing that I dislike about the iPad.

    Apple users have had Os X for 10 years and switching allways have been fast and it is no different on a Mac running Lion and using any Macintosh Applications and with respect until windows 7 was released on a PC it was a dog.l...l. However can I remind you this is Not windows and Not Macintosh OS. When ios5 is released you can switch so much faster using swipe. One cannot compare full operating systems with either Android or iOS I have multiple apps open at same time on an ipad2 and the only time I have issues is Apps that can drain battery life as they constantly check with the Internet or anything that is GPS active. Considering on a given day I switch some 15 apps I do not see why it is an issue as as Sweet poison has stated it happens in an instant as all is memory based. yes you may have apps that hug ram but at the end of the day it is a minor problem


    I should also point out that approx 40 to 50 percent of ipadforums users are PC based and they seem to adapt quite fine

    Oh one more thing I have a MacBook running Mac OS Lion and windows 7 using parallels syncing 4 iPhones 2 iPads and an appleTV

    They were to me!

    I hadn't worked out how easy it is to make "groups" to reduce the clutter, so thanks for that tip, whoever made it. :)

    i don't like to double tap home button, so i swipe four fingers up.

    oh, and i swipe to different apps without closing the one I'm on.

    oh, and i close an app by swiping it shut.

    Not for me. I hate leaving all those Cheeto colored smudges on the screen.
