iOS Multitasking explained detailedly

Frasier Speirs had an interesting post on his blog which corrected several misconceptions about iOS multitasking. Where Speirs demonstrated the working of iOS multitasking in several scenarios using a video.
There are five sections to this video demonstrating:
  • An app going from active to background to suspended
  • Instacast HD requesting extra background time to finish a podcast download
  • TomTom running indefinitely in the background
  • Batman Arkham City Lockdown and Real Racing 2 HD competing for big chunks of device memory
  • Batman Arkham City Lockdown forcing several smaller apps out of memory

If I can summarise my point: killing apps manually is fine as a troubleshooting step but it shouldn't be part of your daily routine.
