    When I'm in BB App World I have to click close 4 times to close it completely as it closes each window 1 at a time. Is there a shortcut to close all windows with 1 click? Thanks

    I always just hit escape key until I get to the first page then close that one. It seems to work fine for me anyway

    Hold Shift and click the top folder's red "X."
    You lost me - I assume sarcasm?
    Wish there was a good app for this.

    "Escape" seldom closes an app. Menu, scroll to the bottom and click "Close" to completely close an app. Most times "Escape" just closes the app window but moves it to the "background" depending on the app. My Facebook app closes with "Escape" as well as Viigo, not all others do. The same thing as minimized on a pc.
    With most apps, you are correct. However, it is a different story with App World.

    The best way to close App World is to: press the escape key until you are at the front page (app carousel), then press menu and close. Pressing close on every single page in App World does not close the app.

    App world is one of the few apps that actually closes using just the escape key. Give it a try then hold your bb key and it is not in the app switcher.

    Yes, sort of. The problem with the AppWorld app is that if you're a few levels in, you have to hit Escape repeatedly until you're back to the main screen, then hit Escape again to exit the app completely. Unfortunately, Menu>Close does the same thing - it only closes the current screen and brings you back to the previous screen. I've seen a few apps like that (some even worse - no Close option on the menu), and I find it inconvenient and the inconsistency in UI standards rather annoying. There really should be a minimum requirement for basic Menu options, and that should include at the very least a Close option that actually closes the app.

    Like I said, it will close fully with the escape key. Check you app switcher, it won't be there. Just press escape like a mad man till it's gone. Unless you are not running the latest official version.
