Close Background iPad Programs

Guess who loves their new iPad? Also, guess who started poking around and saw a significant decrease in performance in his new iPad mere hours after booting it up?

Yeah – that’s me. See, by default the iPad will keep apps open in the background – and while this is a boon to productivity ( or bane, depending on how you look at it ), eventually stuff starts getting a little… laggy.

So, here’s how you close some of those apps running in the background.

Simply click the home button twice to bring up the program bar.

Once it pops up, press and hold your finger on an app until the icons start to wiggle. Now click the red minus sign next to each program you want to close.

It’s that easy!

I’m off to further damage my new toy! See you later!
