Are those multitasking gestures available on the iPad2, or has not been released yet?
Nope. Not in 4.3. If you have a Mac you can enable them through Xcode though.
Yes - open Xcode - use device for development - this enables gestures
What I want to know is, how do you swipe between apps in a way that doesn't register as a swipe within a given app, like a game? If I swiped at something in a fruit ninja type game, I'd be a little miffed if it took me to Safari.
I'm sort of afraid to do that because I wonder why they're not in iOS 4.3 by default.
Do we know why Apple elected not to enable them?
They will destroy your ipad.
Because they weren't meant for 4.3. They were in the betas so developers could implement them in apps going forward.
By using <3 finers
Ok, question. I heard that using Xcode 3 will work, but I'm not seeing a device list when I plug in my iPad. Do you also need the SDK installed?
you have to go to device manager in xcode 4 then click on your iPad and click use for development and then wait for it to do it's thing and you should be good to go
Think this'll go mainstream in iOS 5?
If not sooner.
It's funny because I installed the 4.3 GM on here and had the option.
Actually, 3.2.6 (as long as you downloaded with the iOS SDK) works just fine. I had 3.2.5 w/o the iOS SDK, and had to download 3.2.6. Kind of a pain (I haven't done any work on iOS apps, so it hadn't been an issue for me) to download a 4 gig update so I could try out the gestures, but I wouldn't want to be without them now. I love having a home button, and there's times I still use it (and there's some general goofiness about swiping between apps at the order they maintain in the 'task bar'), but it feels a lot more natural, and a lot more like what you felt the ipad should be from the start. Loving it.
had you previously enabled your iPad for development?
So I enabled gestures and now when I connect my iPad I get an error and another error when the sync is done saying it can't backup.
Is this normal? Doesn't seem like it should be but since this if for development use, I thought I'd check.
shouldn't be down to the gestures as I have it enabled on mine and it syncs fine
That is exactly why Apple has not released this feature to the general public - its only available to developers so Apple can get feedback, and developers can measure any impact it might have on their apps.
Its really amazing, app switching works fast on the iPad 2. I hope they keep this in for good makes the iPad really shine!
You are correct. For some reason the syncing service failed so I just followed this thread to fix it. All good now!
I did this, it works very well.
