Default Searching "kill app by back button"

Hello friends,
i'm searching for an app or mod to give the back button a kill-app function like in some Roms.
Is there a way to activate this function?

Regards, Chris

If rooted, you can install "GMD Gesture Control" (a cool app anyway!) and create a custom gesture for killing the running app.

If you just want the app to be killed as soon as you leave it there is a function for this that can be enabled in Developer Options.

Thanks for that, That's a nice option.

Im just wondering tho, is there a way we can select which apps fully close and which ones don't?

Like the swipe to close option,,, id like to swipe to fully close the app instead of leaving it idle..
That would be good
