    In Settings, in General, then Multitasking Gestures, it says that you can use 4 or 5 fingers to "Pinch to the Home Screen". Well, it doesn't seem to work. When I'm on say, page 4, and do a pinch, it doesn't do anything. And I really don't know how to pinch with 4 or 5 fingers.... What does "Pinch to the Home Screen" mean? This gesture doesn't take me to the Home Screen.

    It is used when you have opened an app and want to close it quickly to get back to your homescreen without using the "Home" button. Put all five fingers on the screen and slide (pinch) them together.
