iOS 4.3 brings new multi-touch gestures to iPad

iOS 4.3 brings new multi-touch gestures to iPad users. These new four and five finger gestures make movement around the operating system a lot easier and quicker. The new gestures include pinching out to the home screen (no home button on iPad?!), swiping up for multi-tasking, and swiping left/right on your screen to switch apps (sort of like 10.7’s Mission Control).

Test Multi-Touch Gestures for iPad
This beta release contains a preview of new Multi-Touch gestures for iPad. You can use four or five fingers to pinch to the Home Screen; swipe up to reveal the multitasking bar; and swipe left or right between apps. We are providing this preview before releasing them to the public to understand how these gestures work with your apps. Test them and give us your feedback on the Apple Developer Forums.
