    Hi Guys,

    Just got my HTC 8X yesterday. Great phone apart from the battery life. Anyways I'm still getting used to the new OS. Now yesterday I was able to close running apps by simply flicking them off the screen. Today I cant. Did I mess up the settings somehow?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    As far as I know the only way to close up apps is by using the back arrow.

    Now that actually is a possibility if you're positive WP8 doesn't have this feature.

    You don't.

    I do wish Microsoft had snagged the WebOS UI design guy instead of ****ing Google.
