    Lately my home button hasn't been working very well and I decided to turn on assisitive touch. I hated it in the past because I only thought you could use it to simply generate one home button tap.

    Well, I was messing around with it today and I noticed there is a lot more to it.

    If you double press the "Home" button in assistive touch, it brings up the multitasking bar (I did not know this) and also, if you hold down the "Home" button in assistive touch, it will bring up Siri/Voice control. (Again, did not know this)

    Also, if you go into "Device" and hold down on "Lock screen" the power off slider will appear.

    These are great little hidden gems inside of assistive touch that I never knew existed.

    I thought I'd share this with all of you. I'm sure this information will be helpful to someone else, as it's helped me out a lot. And I thought I knew the iOS inside and out.

    I've used it since the iOS 5 GM. Thanks though.
