    Has anyone been able to use the activator gesture swipe up from bottom of screen or bottom left/right?

    I haven't been able to use these two gestures since iOS4 till now and was wondering if someone is able to get them to work?

    This gesture worked for me in iOS 4 to some extent, now it doesn't work. You're not the only one. Activator still has some kinks to work out (ie shutter button).

    With iOS 4+, swipe up from the bottom seems to take a pretty specific move to make happen--a slowish, careful swipe with a bit of pressure basically between the dock icons. If I do it right, I can get it to work every time. If I'm even a little careless, it can take two or three tries. Never have gotten across the bottom swipes to work consistently.

    (Haven't tried on iOS 5, if that's what you're specifically wondering.)

    Swipe up from bottom has been working fine for me. Still on 4.3.3 iphone 4. I set it as my home button. I think the trick is that you cannot do it really fast as you would be accustomed to with a regular swipe from side to side.

    It needs to be a little slower, and not like a "flick" but more like a smooooooth swipe (literally). Also start the swipe up from touching the home button.
