Let me just say that I’m happy Apple finally got around to adding “multitasking” (closer to fast-app switching, but some apps do actually continue to operate in the background) to iOS last year for the iPhone and a few months later for the iPad (why it didn’t just launch with it, I’ll never know). But I do have one complaint, and that is with how “killing” the apps is handled.
I’ve always wished iOS had support for gestures in place of using the home button, but never more so than when I have to double tap it to open up the app switcher, press an app for a few seconds, then click the shaky “x” in the corner. And to even get to that point, you have to be out of the app first, otherwise the app icon isn’t even an option.
Why can’t I just pinch with 3 fingers to kill the app?
It doesn’t even have to be gestures. It could be a tiny button on the status bar that you press, or give the developers an Apple approved standard for allowing a button or setting to be built into the app itself.
What do you think? Are there any other things you would like to see improved for iOS? I know a lot of people are dying for a better method for notifications.
P.S. I’m aware that no one reads this blog and therefore my questions will go unanswered.
