    when i do the four finger swipe on the ipad 2 it moves from open app to open app === the ipad 1 doesn't do that -- both have the same operating system iox 5. Is this behavior correct - or do i have something not set up correct? Thanks for your help in advance. Dave

    There should be a mutlitouch/gestures switch in Settings. If not, you need to update your iPad 1 to 5.0.1. Apple did not include gestures for iPad 1 in the original iOS 5.0

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Jeeper is right, the gestures came in 5.0.1 for the ipad1, you can do the upgrade from your iPad and only takes about 5 minutes. Go to Settings - General - Software update, it's up the top.
