How to manually force the Mobile App to close on the iPhone?

Find resources designed to help you get the most from Replicon

If you’re using an older device that doesn’t support multi-tasking, you can quit an application manually – though this also works as a force quit on the newer devices if you prefer. You’ll need to follow the following steps:

  • Hold down the Sleep/Wake Button on the top.
  • Wait for a red slider to appear. Don’t slide it.
  • Let go of the Sleep/Wake Button.
  • Hold down the home button and the app will force quit.

Once you’re back on the home screen the application should be closed, and you can re-open it normally again.

Note: Works on iPhone 3G/3GS/iPhone4.
