    Native multitasking... It's the status bar notifier from backgrounder... If you have one with sun beams coming out, it means it's multitasking through backgrounder (vs native).

    would using backgrounder multitasking be better for battery life than native multitasking? also how do i choose backgrounder multitasking instead of native?

    It would not create better battery life... Actually, backgrounder multitasking uses more resources (RAM) than native... You can enable backgrounder multitasking in the backgrounder app.

    BTW, I love your paint skills

    Its the same. Backgrounder native=native native. Set the general function to auto-detect to make thins easier. KISS.

    There's backgrounder and native... Backgrounder is true multitasking while native is sudo multitasking (also known as fast app switching). They have their pros and cons...

    But I set it to auto detect too... I may try to have them all go "fast app switching", but it may create some errors... Haven't tested it.

    i see, you don't really enabled backgrounder right. i mean cause that apps that i put under override so that they are turned off if exit are considered under backgrounder's multitasking correct? ones that i put autodetect run under native?

    "Turned of if exited" = The app will quit when you hit the home button

    Auto detect = If the app supports "fast app switching" it'll do that, otherwise it'll run through Backgrounder's multitasking method.
