Recently-used apps != running apps
Authored by: joewhite on May 31, '13 09:40:28PM

This hint is just wrong. I don't know why this keeps getting passed around as good advice. The iOS multitasking bar does not contain "a list of all running apps". It contains "a list of recently used apps". The user never has to manage background tasks on iOS.
