Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Though I think you can kill the apps now. like windows 8Background tasks will be able to run. Separately 8 main apps will be allowed to be "frozen" (accessible through the back button). Functionality basically stays the same I think.
The background tasks part is a big deal. It means devs can get access to background location and VOIP (oh yeah!) services on the same level as the OS.

I dunno I think So. But I find it likely because MS is porting all the features from Windows 8 Wp8. So Yes it's likelyCan you? Awesome!
I hated having to hold the back button to go back to an app where it was left off. I would like to be able to tap the app correctly and have it be where I left off (in wp7 they always start from the beginning). Will this be possible in wp8?
You want a phone that lags and freezes because it will run out of memory.i want to start an app, have it run, then close when i tell it, not when i open another app.
Just seems more natural to use the back button to switch apps. Imagine being in another one and want to switch, you'd have to goto the homescreen, find its icon and then tap it. Rinse and repeat. When you can save much time by going to the task switcher.
There are plenty of quad-core devices on the market today which do the exact same thing. Why would you want apps unnecessarily running in the background, potentially eating up CPU cycles and draining the battery?So much for dual core. Freezing apps in the background? I thought this was why they left the CE core to the NT core.

Android multitasking... which is not true multitasking, but pretty close, blows. I can hit the home button out of Bad Piggies, for example, on my GS3 and many times Watchdog will pop up saying it is using a lot of CPU in the background.. WFT? The Endgadet app on Android is another example of an app that goes out of control on Android. Has since it was introduced. That type of multitasking is unneeded.

So we should allow them all to run in the background, then? Cause our phones to lag, and eventually freeze?most apps dont really have to run in the background, but some do.
