    Question Home button: yes/no/indifferent

    Would like a future iPad to be "home-button-less"?

    After seeing 4.3 myself in person, I would indeed like to go button-free on the iPad .. home button that is. A rocker volume is still welcome in my book.

    If the iPads of the future still have home buttons, no big. Perhaps just the option to use multiple finger gestures to pinch to home, swipe between apps, and hide/unhide the multitask tray would be nice.

    Maybe that makes me indifferent, but if there weren't one, I'd be just fine without.

    In any case, what's your preference for your want of an iPad without a home button?

    Certainly with current design of the user interface and apps it's needed.
    No reason for it to remain a mechanical button though, but until we know about future iOS revisions it's here to stay.

    If it does change, it mustn't become too complicated or they'll lose that intuitive facility which appeals from toddlers to centenarians.

    Home button but no stupid gestures.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    I say add it as an option, but keep the home button. Why not have both? IMO, clicking or double clicking the home button is intuitive, whereas learning all these swipe gestures makes it a little more tedious. Especially since many apps take advantage of a lot of fingers input lol

    Good point. Never thought of it but those dumb gestures could get in the way of a few apps. Take Uzu or Moonlight for example.
