It's incredible - this is what I'm most excited about. Fastest way to multitask in the history of iOS. No more double tap + wait for animation to finish + scroll + tap.

Meanwhile, people are bummed about imaginary issues that the phone will have and/or the notch and will wait a full year before using one. More for us at launch.

Yep, I was really excited to see this video, seems so fast to go back and forward between 2 apps.

Here the app switching mechanism looks different from the Keynote demo. In the Keynote demo, Craig simply swiped horizontally across the bottom of the screen. Why is it different here? I like the Keynote demo swiping much better.

You can do what you're describing and don't need to arc up like the video. It was proven here in response to that video spreading:

Hahaha, all those posts about how much slower it’s going to be than double pressing the home button...

The gestures are not one of my complaints about the iPhone X. Looks great, definitely something I can get used to, as sad as it is to see the iconic home button go.
