Apple has been working on their multi-touch feature since a long time, and was also expected on their newly launched iPad 2. Though Apple is planning to enable the muti-touch gesture in their future devices, there seems to be a hidden feature in the iPad and iPad 2 which can be enabled just in a few minutes and spending $5. According to our sources, users can purchase Apple’s iOS developer software Xcode 4, which is available for $5 from the App Store and enable the nifty feature with a single click. Once enabled, users will be able to use a four-finger swipe from side to side in order to switch and open apps, swipe up with four fingers to open the app switcher, and use a five-finger pinch to return to the home screen.
How to Enable Multi-Touch Gesture in iPad 2?
- Purchase the app Xcode 4 from Mac App Store
- Launch Xcode 4 and connect your iPad or iPad 2 to your PC
- Click the “use for development” button
- Ignore Xcode’s request for developer credentials and disregard the ensuing error
- Once developer mode is activated, you can enable gestures by going to Settings > General on your iPad or iPad 2
If you have purchased iPad 2, I would love to know your initial reaction and experience with iPad2. Do you think it’s worth to sell iPad first generation and buy iPad2?
