    Playing with iOS 7 on iPad it almost feels like the pinch to close gesture should take you to multitasking instead of swipe up, which matched better when the multitask tray came up from the bottom.

    But I am conflicted because pinch to go to home does make sense. Maybe it should be pinch the other way, like a pinch open to enter multitasking?

    What do you guys think?

    EDIT:

    Ok well I just tried it and they DID make pinch open bring up multitasking- I don't think that was there in iOS 6 right!?!?! I guess apple IS listening... that was fast lol jk

    There is no pinch to open multitasking.

    Just tried this on iOS 6 and pinch open brings up the multitasking bar in iOS 6 too. Well, I never knew! :D

    It's not intended. It's recognizing the gesture as a swipe up which is what really opens multitasking.

    Interesting... that makes sense, you might be right about that.

    And it's not a bug either because you are actually doing the swipe up gesture. I just tried it and it only worked when I swipe up with 3 or 4 fingers as part of a pinch out gesture.
