New bug in ios7 that i have found in multitasking 8 ball pool and words with friend refuse to shut down. Tried restart, tried to delete apps and re-install and they just keep sticking around. I think maybe ANOTHER restore is due. I have restored my phone more times since IOS7 has come out then i did from having the 4, 4S and 5 before.

I don't have 8 Ball Pool installed, but I have WWF and I haven't had any trouble removing it or any other apps from the task switcher on iOS 7. Do they stay open (background) indefinitely or do they open as if they were closed? Are you restoring from backup?

I don't see the reasoning behind keeping apps/processes intact through the restart/off-on/reboot cycle. Through the many years of computer usage everything gets cleared and started new when the computer starts up. Why should iOS be different?

A reboot closes them. They stay in task switcher so you can quickly find them and switch between apps.

How about you delete the app, reboot, and download the app again... Worth a try before a restore.

I don't know what it means resource wise if the apps are still in task switcher. Does that mean they are still occupying a piece of storage/memory? Is the app's "state" still maintained so that should it be switched to the app would pick-up where it left off? If that's the case then a restart/reboot doesn't really "clear" memory and give the device a "fresh start". Not a good thing; IMO.

They are fully closed and using no memory and they aren't contributing to battery drain. Try rebooting and opening one. It will be fully closed as if you had force quit the app.

Seems like notes survives a hard boot though it could easily be a resume from last use function.

No, it doesn't survive a force close, reboot or hard reset. It just opens really fast. You can see the difference if you watch closely.
