    Hi..
    I got a new iPod Touch 8 GB this week.
    I have installed around 75 apps , games, etc.

    I would like to know, whats the best way to CLOSE or KILL an application, after im done with it.

    Like if im doing a expense cal on a app and then I want to send an email.
    Now I want to close the app and then goto MAIL.

    But there is no way to close the application. Thats too bad in APPLE stuff.

    Is there any good PAID application for this, so that we can kill the open processes from there ??

    I have heard ppl saying, we can just HOLD the HOME button for 5 seconds and the apps are closed. But how would I would , if they have got closed or not ??

    No, I dont think, I need to Jailbreak the iPod Touch. Im fine with the current new one and I will pay for everything.
    I just an app to control and see, what apps are opened and then close it, when needed. Possible ?

    You need to chill out and realise that when you press the home screen, the open application closes.

    You need nothing else. Nothing runs in the background except the music application, Mail and Safari.

    Wow, is that true ?

    Ok, I just got a Free System Info App , and while I switch on , it shows 45MB free , but when I run some apps and close them from HOME button also, it shows 11MB FREE

    Applications like MEEBO and EMAIL TYPING gets very slow then.
    Also, the portrait mode hardly ever comes.
    is there any shortcut or magic place on the iPod Touch to sense it to display the portrait keyboard ?

    But aint we going to lose the Apple's copyight or updates with that jaikbreaking ? :O

    I dont want to do anything illegal. So, let me know,if its legal and right and safe for my device.

    Can anyone point me to the htread which says all the advantages of Jailbreaking and how to do that.

    I will think on that then. Just dont want to get cut off from Apple Updates.

    The reasaon you are seeing less memory after running an app is due to the way Apple assigns memory. It labels them as 'free', 'wired' and 'active'. If you open an App Store app called 'Sticks' say, when you close it the 'active' memory used for Sticks is now effecitvely free but held as priority for that app in case you reopen it and it's labelled 'wired'. If you don't and the device needs memory later on it will just use up that held memory.

    i.e. real free memory = free + wired and it's only the active memory that is in use.
