Majority of iPad users open apps (applications), use them and press Home button to goto Home screen. We rarely bother to close apps previously opened on Apple iPad. As a result, lot of already opened application keep running in the background. This hogs precious RAM memory on iPad and may slow down its usage. Hence, it is advisable to close all applications running in the background (that you do not intend to use as of now).
