Bonus tip 1

You can close up to three apps at a time by using up to three fingers when swiping up. Just put one finger on each adjacent app that you want to close and swipe them up simultaneously.

Bonus tip 2

The multitasking view is also for just that purpose, multitasking. Instead of swiping up on the app you would normally close, just click on the app icon below it to switch to that particular app.
