    Hello,

    I want to know if there is something like a app killer program for the ipod touch?

    because when I lcik the home button twice it shows many programs still running (or not??) in the background. I think this slows down my touch and will use extra battery.

    Does anybody has a solution?

    Thanks!

    There is, it is called SBSettings, You simply open Cydia. Download SBSettings. Go to activator in your "Settings". And set SBSettings as a shortcut open. Such as "Swipe your finger down from status bar." Then you go to the SpringBoard and open up SBSettings as you set it on activator and there should be an icon that says "processes" you simply open that up and end your desired application process.

    To kill any apps running in the background you can also bring up the backgrounded list by double-tapping the home button and then holding a finger on one of the icons. After a second or two they change and have a minus sign in a red circle. Tapping on that kills the backgrounded app.

    Annoyingly, "remove background" also removes your list of recent apps.

    Yeah, but if you want a less ham-fisted approach you could go with what's built in to iOS.
