Default Closing Applications

Please Login to Remove!

i hit the BB button (7 dot) and hit it again then go to Switch Applications. when i go to highlight one of the applications and hit the 7-dot button again, nothing happens. how do you close applications?

i've also tried holding alt+back and it brings up the app list but still can't close anything

When in the application, press the menu key and select Close/Exit.

There are 5 that will always show, Message, Call Logs, Browser, BBM, and Home.

No, the end button will move the application into the background. Some applications allow you to close them by pressing AND holding the escape (back) key. But it's always best practice to close an application when you're not using it. It will conserve battery life and help with memory leaks.
