    Hey all. Ever since LP this lag/stutter/hitch when swiping away apps in the recents menu is driving me crazy!!! Has anyone come across a fix or patch for this? I've restarted and cleared cache but nothing has worked. I do not want to do a Factory Reset unless it's my last option. Any suggestions?

    A factory reset will not solve this problem. This is also my biggest gripe about Lollipop.

    I've not experienced this at all on my Turbo. But I also once I updated to LP, I cleared cache and did data reset to factory.

    Some have said that swiping away the Recent apps is not necessary, but like many since the Lollipop update, there is just something about wanting to do it. Literally hundreds of cards could build up and it just doesn't seem right. My wife's Verizon Galaxy S6 has a "Close all" button to close all the cards. We don't have that choice with our Turbos.

    I don't know that it's necessary but, like kmf1 said, a boatload of cards build up in there. I've let it go before and never noticed any hiccup any where else while going through my normal tasks. I use my phone a bunch during the course of the day for work and I use different apps depending on what is going on so I do get quite the build up. Was just curious if anyone had dug deeper in finding a fix. Some nexus 6 users have reported it as well, oh well.

    Any fix for lag on swiping away recent apps?
    Yes.

    Don't swipe away the apps.

    Not really (or not in an important way). The OS manages the RAM nicely. It's ok to swipe away an app that is draining battery (because it's a crappy app). But RAM that is not being used doesn't help you at all. Linux manages RAM very differently from Windows.

    Even apps that aren't running show in the list - it's just a list of your last used apps (and browser tabs) in the order you've used them.
