Earlier we shared the manual method to enable multitouch gestures on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch by modifying a few files using your computer. Thankfully, a new tweak called MT Gestures has been released on Cydia which automates this process and lets you easily toggle multitouch gestures ON and OFF through settings.
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?
