You have to double-tap the home button. Once you are in that multitasking screen, hold the app you want to quit. They will start to jiggle with red minus button on the upper left corner. Tap the minus sign and the app quit. I have tested this with multiple apps. They are removed from the recent app list until you go to the home screen and relaunche them. Hope this helped

For iOS 3.0 and above: http://www.simonblog.com/2009/07/11/how-to-force-quit-an-application-for-iphone-3-0/ 1. Press and hold the "sleep/power" button until the Power Off screen appears 2. Press and hold the "Home" button for 6-8 seconds. 3. Whatever app was open will close, and return to the home menu. (tested on my 3G iPod Touch, running iOS 4)
