    Exiting Apps?


    Using the twitter and facebook apps they always seem to be active in the tabs. Is there a way to close them manually so they are not part of your background tabs.

    Only way to really stop them is to kill them in Task Manager.

    They are meant to be suspended in the background, to be easily brought back up. They don't give you a way to exit them..

    There really does need to be an actually UI element to close out the apps. That will defiantly get annoying.
