There is a lot of information floating around this week about iOS5 and all of the cool new features. For some summaries see our previous post here.
One very cool item that hasn’t had much attention is the multi-touch gestures available in iPad.
These four or even five finger gestures can be turned on in the general settings of system preferences.
Swiping up with four fingers now reveals the multi-tasking bar, previously you had to double push the home button to see this – very nice.
When you are inside an application swiping with four fingers from left to right will move to the next application – again very nice.
Finally when you would like to move to the home screen, pinch with five fingers will take you right there.
The screen shot below shows where to turn these gestures on.
