    Hey, just got the lg optimus 2x speed.
    i had a question with this... how do you close apps or programs?
    because everytime i start, for example twitter, and i go back to home page and i look on my task manager twitter is still running... how can i close it with one button when im on the app or program itself, so NOT trough task manager.
    thx

    Not to sure

    But there is an app called "android booster" put this as a widget and press optimize, this closes every app down freeing up ram and speeds up your phone if your using LGs software (does Get a bit laggy)

    If by 'task manager' you mean holding the home button, it's not a task manager, just a list of recently used apps.

    Generally, the back button closes things.

    Android 2.2+ manages apps for you. When I was using stock LG software it did get a bit slow, however, so I installed Fast Reboot from the market, which basically just closes/restarts all of your stuff (like a reboot in half a second). Seemed to make the phone faster.

    Try not to install automatic task killers though, they're rather useless on new android versions.
