Some touch gestures for the iPad

Patrick Stafford /

tech-tricksWith the new iPad having been out for a few months now, some users may not be aware there are a few touch options they can use instead of the home button to get around:

  • To bring up the multi-task tray, just use four fingers and swipe the screen upwards
  • To close an app, use all five fingers and pinch towards the middle of the screen.
  • To swap between apps, just use five fingers and slide apps across the screen, either left or right.
