    hi i have bought an ipod touch today..my first ipod ever!!! it's so fun.
    anyways..i have some questions for ipod wiz.
    how do u turn off an application completely. I read having application open slows down the touch so i wanna know how you can quit an application. i read that you have to press the home button but that does not seem to work. For example, i was on google. i pressed down on the home button for a few seconds. the Safari dissappeared but when i click it again on the home menu. the site that i was on previously pops up.

    thanks for any help. greatly appreciated

    u quit it completely by holding the home button for around 10 seconds

    safari shows the last page by default, whether u close it completely or not...

    hope this helps....

    This probably already makes sense.

    Regarding hockeycrazes's answer, holding down the home button for ten seconds quits all running apps.

    I don't think you need to hold it down for every application to quit. Some applications, like Safari, still keep their processes open, but other applications (like Books.app for example) close their processes. At least that's what SysInfo shows...
