Force quit apps on your iPhoneBrian Tong shows you how to force quit a frozen app without having to restart your phone.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> You've probably had a situation where an application or game freezes in your iPhone and you've done a hard restart. But there's a better way. I'm Brian Tong with cnet.com, and I'm going to show you how to force quit an app so you can still keep your phone up and running. Now this is for iPhone and iPhone 3G users. All you have to do is hold the Home button for about five seconds. It will force quit the app, and you're back up and running. But for iPhone 3G S users it's a little different because holding the Home button brings up the voice control feature. So if you want to force quit an app hold the power button for about five seconds. Once you see the Slide to Power Off option appear, release the power button, then hold the Home button for five seconds, and it will force quit your app. I know it's an extra step, but it accomplishes the same thing. I'm Brian Tong from cnet.com, and that's how you force quit an app from your iPhone. Use it wisely.
