    They are awesome! They really improve the user experience making it so simple to pull up the multitasking bar and for getting back to the home screen. I hope they can somehow implement this for the iPhone with less fingers needed.

    If you have a Mac, I think this is a must have add-on. Just download for free Xcode version 3, plug in your iPad and once it's recognized, click on "use for development" and then disconnect and you will have the new gestures in your General Settings section.

    All three gestures are explained in the screenshot above.

    Pinch to go to home screen
    Swipe to switch between apps
    Move up to open multitaskbar

    I am assuming youre on a Mac. You can buy Xcode 4 in the Mac App Store for $5 or do a Google search for Xcode 3 and you will find a lot of places where you can download it for free. I say it is well worth the $5 if you buy it. I never click on the iPad home button anymore because everything can be done by swiping.

    I guess this is only for the 3.2+ or I just cannot figure it out on Xcode 3.1.4... Is there a working app in Cydia that allows it or do I need to pony up the 30.00 to get the snow leopard os

    I can't get the Xcode 4 unless I upgrade my Mac OS to 10.6+ snow leopard it seems.

    I did it with Xcode 3. Open Xcode, plug in your ipad, you have to open the window that shows your iPad is connected. (I can't remember the name off hand. If you don't see your device I can look later for the steps to see your device.) But if you see it, just click where it says use for development and then you can unplug the iPad. The gestures will now be in your settings on the iPad.
