    I recently started a project called 'Mind the Gap'. The project is about improving current UX design. These improvements are based on how I experience interfaces, and how I would fill these UX 'gaps' as a UX designer.

    This one is based on the fact that you can't shut down all your running iPhone apps with one single tab. People use this feature to save battery life. I find it really annoying I have to tab the screen multiple times to shut down all of my running apps. Therefore I added the 'clear' button :) Simple, but effective solution I think. Any thoughts about my project or this solution? Feel free to comment!

    To be honest, there's been loads of discussions already, but the Multitask row aren't running apps but more like a list of Recently Used apps. iOS manages the apps and closes the actual running apps when more memory is needed or the app hasn't been used for some time. Apps should only be closed from the multitask row if you don't use them anymore, it's acting up, or you just feel like it needs a restart.
