just press home button twice..and you can see the application running below the screen...then hold to the icon until its shaking and appears (-) sign..press this sign..and your application is off...love ip4
To stop the music from playing, enter the iPod app and simply press Pause (note, there is no Stop button). You cannot delete the default applications but to delete the ones that you've installed, simply hold down any one app until they all star "shaking". Proceed to press the (X) next to the app that you'd like to erase. A confirm message should pop up.
Occupy cluck the circle button twice quickly it will show what apps are running in background. Hold down one for a sec and you will get the delete bar to pop up on each app. Just press the ones you want to close.
Not sure but I also think this may help conserve your battery
I know, First I'll answer your "How do I delete an app" question: In order to delete an app, you must hold your finger on the app until all your apps are wiggling, then you'll see these little "X"s on the top left corner of your apps, so you press the little "X" on the app you want to delete (If you updated your iPod to iOS 4, then you can have some games connected to your game center, and if you delete them, your game center account can still keep your game data saved inside it, just incase you want to download it again because of a problem occurring in your game app) and choose the option to delete it. Okay now to the next question "How do I stop music in my iPhone" Well I'm not so sure what you mean by that, but I think I know what you can do, if you can't press the pause button to stop your music and you have no power over it, I suggest you force restart your iPhone (To force restart your iPhone, you just hold the Wake Button and the Home Button and the same time until your iPhone turns off and restarts, this is really helpful if you encounter your iPhone being frozen and you can't press the home button nor the wake button to stop it, this can happen if it's stuck during the use of an app) or if you can, just hold the power button and slide the red slider to turn of, then turn your iPod back on. I hope this helps! This is the first time I ever answered a question on a Question & Answer website.
I also have this problem and think I can clarify why it was asked. There's only a pause and play button on the iphone music app. I pause the music and go about using my phone and at some point during the day the music is running again. I don't want to delete the app from my phone b/c I like to listen to podcasts while I work out but I'm sick of it running all the time and it draws down my battery. I thought it might be that shuffle was on in my music app settings, but it's not. Any advice?
