    So I updated last night...I've noticed when I open a folder I have to tap on the screen now to get it to close? Used to be I was able to swipe it closed but not anymore...my 5 finger gestures still work though...anyone else notice this?

    Nope, 4 finger pinch works fine for me.

    My 4 finger pinch works fine....I'm talking about when you open a folder...in order to close it I used to just SLIDE it closed with 1 finger swipe up or down. I cannot do this anymore. I have to tap?? Annette

    Ah, never noticed this. Yip, you need to tap to close it.

    We're you able to "slide" folders shut prior to this update? When I got my iPad last April I managed to enable the multi touch gestures myself. I wonder if maybe with this update the slide was turned into a tap or what? Annette

    That was one of the first things I noticed: that you can no longer swipe your folders closed. Tapping folders closed isn't nearly as slick as swiping them closed. :( (I'm using iPad2)

    I never used the instructions to activate the fancier multi finger gesturing because they said it would be activated with iOS5. If it was, I haven't figured it out yet.

    Yes, figured out 4 finger to close and open it, but it's not the same or as easy as the old 1 finger swipe to close it.

    Apple! PLEASE put it back! Thanks!
