BB10 Multi Tasking Feature
So I was thinking about this...but the BB10 homescreen has only 8 running applications at all times...what if you want to run 10 apps...do the first 2 that you opened close completely?? or just leave the homescreen but continue to run in the background? Has anyone heard about this? It seems weird they limit you to 8, although I am sure I wont have more than 8 apps running constantly, but if for a reason i do want 10 or 12 open, what happens to those additional apps? do they close ???

You can open more than 8 apps, but only 8 active frames will remain live in the homescreen with your last used apps closing as the poster above saysIt's Never Too Late to Be Bold You can find my musing over at BerryFlow.com | @jmznvs

I don't care how much memory these devices will have, no one needs 10 apps running in the background. I would love for someone to describe to me the scenario where they needed 10 apps running at once. I multitask like crazy on my BBs and this seems outrageous even to meBB4Life

While we are on the topic of multitasking will we still have the option of swiping from the side bezels like on the PB to switch between apps? Do Dev Alphas support it? I would hate to love that feature as it is a truly powerful and efficient feature.
Back to the topic at hand though, it is interesting that we are limited to 8 running apps as Active Frames. I wonder why there is a limit. The PB can run a lot more, albeit after 12 apps it begins to shut down I think. Ironically, even our older BBOS devices can have more than 8 on the multitasking menu.

So I understand the active frames wont come back...but lets say my 8th application is FaceBook, and i open another app, that makes facebook the 9th app and will take it away from the active frames...does that mean it closed facebook completely? or is facebook still running, but I just have to access it through the app grid?

Re: BB10 Multi Tasking Feature
Warning 8 active frames don't mean 8 applications in background.
Indeed in using card invokation, you can get several app in the same active frame.
Ex: hub -> mail -> pdf viewer -> share through BBM
= 1 active frame

I personally do not find that it takes a long time to get to any app on my Dev Alpha because you can swipe through the grid panels or go to the grid panel you want, so I you know where all your icons are you would be fine.
