When I close an app(s) I just slide up from the bottom of the screen and hold for a second which reveals all of the open apps which can be swipped through left to right. Its usually the first one (the current one I was using) that I want to close, sometimes just to refresh, and I flip it up towards the top to do so. I often see other apps that I'm not currently using and close them as well. I've looked at my family's iPhones and iPads, especially those with young children and sometimes Im much surprised to see the very large numbers of apps including story and game apps that are open. it never occurs to them to close them now and then. This coupled with turning the device off then on often seems to help with battery issues and speed or maybe it just makes me feel like I' doing something useful....

I'm probably clueless, but just feel that the phone is more efficient with fewer apps open over time. Its nearly as fast to open a closed app than an open one especially on the new phones.
