    So in all videos I've seen online people open multitasking by swiping to the middle of the screen, waiting and then the multitasking overview opens. However you can also just swipe up and then immediately to the right, like this:



    This is much quicker as it always opens (unlike with the waiting) and you don't have to pause.

    Also, when you want to close an app from memory, just keep it pressed shortly and immediately swipe up. This will close it without having to wait too long.

    Some might know this already, but I think for many this will be new.

    Sliding to the left works too. I really like the new gestures. So much smoother and more fluid.

    Hmmm, the sliding to the left doesn't work for me, only to the right. But either way, it's fun and very fluid like you said :)

    You can also drag the bottom bar to the right to switch back to the previous app.

    And then back to the left to toggle.

    Great tip, thanks! Was doing the whole ‘swipe halfway up then hold for a second’ and it felt a tad too slow, but will be doing this from now on

    It can be faster, just stop your finger after the swipe, instead of releasing your finger during the swipe.
