iOS 4.2 brought a lot of new additions to the iPad including multi-tasking, folders and game center. Multi-tasking has truly revolutionized the iPad and with iOS 4.2, the magical device is much more revolutionary than before.
Apple does its best to prevent battery drainage even when Apps are running in the background and quick App switching helps save a lot of time. Apps in multi-tasking do not run forever. They automatically close after a certain period, but if you want to stop an App in multi-tasking, Apple does allow you to do that.
Simply double click the home screen button to bring up the multi-tasking bar and tap and hold on any of the icon until it starts to jiggle. Once it is jiggling, a close icon will appear on top of each of the Apps. Tap on it and you’ll close the App from multi-tasking.
A well-known, but useful trick.
