    title says it all....what actions do you use and what do they do? Just wanted to see what everyone else does and if I can get some good ideas.

    Status bar swipe down - SBsettings
    Status bar swipe right - simulates sleep button
    Double tap clock on lock screen - BiteSMS quick compose
    Tap volume heads up display - BiteSMS quick compose everywhere else

    Ive been trying to use gestures in place of buttons cuz it makes me feel better that theyll last longer that way after my 3GS button fell off and I got a replacement luckily.

    Ive been reading about people using the swipe right and left of the status bar to change iPod tracks and I like that idea. I just need a way to simluate the sleep button if I do that!

    Pretty simple setup for me

    statusbar swipe L/R = SBSettings
    statusbar swipe down = removebackground
    double click sleep button = flashlight
    hold home button @ lockscreem = camera

    Used to have my flashlight activate whenever I shake my phone but that obviously led to my flashlight being on for hours in pocket and me not even realize it :D

    Not too many activator gestures set up, everything else is pretty well accessible.

    Swipe status bar left/right - SBSettings
    volume up + volume down - pause track
    short hold home button - phone favorites
    short hold sleep button - flashlight

    Bringing this thread back from the dead but I am interested in seeing how people have found Activator useful and didn't want to create a new thread.

    SBSettings: Status Bar Swipe Right (default)
    Lockinfo Infoshade: Status Bar Swipe Down (also default i think)

    iPod Change Next Track : Hold Volume Up
    iPod Change Previous Track: Hold Volume Down
    iPod Pause/Play: Hold Both Volume Buttons

    Phone Favorites: Status Bar Double Tap

    Flashlight: Status Bar Hold

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    All I use is:

    Swipe status bar left/right - SBSettings

    I don’t see the need for anything else.

    Swipe status bar left/right: SBSettings
    Press volume up & down together: Flashlight
    Press volume down then up: airplane mode (for school :p)

    Haha, lesson learned. The same thing happened to me...boy was my phone hot afterwards.
