    I'm trying to set up multitasking to do the following:
    When I have a book-reading app open, 4 finger swipe to the right to go to a dictionary app, 4 finger swipe left to go to Safari. So that the book reding app is always in the middle.
    If somebody can help it will put me out of my misery!!

    Try this: Close everything out (via the multitasking bar).

    Then, in this order, open the dictionary, the book-reading app and then Safari. Now, the reader should be in the middle for a swipe to either side to get to the other two apps.

    Now, I'm thinking this should work. I still haven't got it in my head how Apple orders the apps (I think stuff should be swiped left when it should be right ... and vice versa). Worth a try.

    Good luck and happy reading!
