    Enabling multi-gestures

    I thought this was going to possible with the iPad 2 right out of the box and was disappointed of course.

    I currently only have a PC and I've read this can be enabled using a Mac. Is there a work around to do this on a PC anyone knows of? Maybe this has already been answered here before but I couldn't find it if it has.

    And I was wondering if I could do this in a Apple store if I happen upon a cool employee. But I can call or walk in on them and ask of course.

    Ah yes, the stickies. I didn't think to peruse those. I will in the future.

    Thanks so much for the help.

    hi,
    so the gesture only has switching between open tasks, return to home screen from an open app, and see the running apps bar on the bottom. is there anything else i'm missing? is there any more tricks besides those i mention?

    thanks

    It would be awesome if apple added: 4/5 finger swipe down while in an app to delete it out of the multitasking bar. I hate having to delete all them apps manually.

    There are browsers you can get from the AppStore that have this feature. Atomic browser is one of them...I think.

    If your Jailbroken, get "Fullscreen for iPad" in Cydia. It gives you finger swipe commands in the actual safari app.

    This is what the process does that was discussed in the first two posts, ie... four-five finger functions and so forth. No jailbreak necessary.
