When in any app, five finger pinch gets you back to home screen. 4 or 5 finger swipe to the left or right switches app, 4 to 5 up reveals multitasking bar. Works like a charm.

Installing beta's can cause a problem.

Attach it to your Mac and restore it - it automatically installs the latest OS.

Are you saying these gestures are in iOS 4.3? I know they were in the betas, but I thought they removed them from the release version?

Anyone know if the Hotspot feature will work on Telus in Canada? How about on a 3GS? I thought I read somewhere that the Hotspot feature was only for iPhone 4.

Yeah, they were still present there, and you can turn them on if you jail break your iPhone.

Uh, Windows vs. Mac is not the issue. I have lots of computers, just that my main one is down and has been for a while. There are workarounds but none of them are totally safe, especially after not syncing for so long.

Besides which I'd rather cut my fingers off than use Windows for anything.

As a fellow Canadian, all the major carriers have announced support for the hotspot feature. click on the link below to get more information;

And, yes it is true the Hotspot feature works ONLY on iPhone 4, no other iDevices.

It's quite clear - I'm running the same build as the general public AND the gestures are still present.

Thanks for the info. I know this already, but I'm concerned about what will happen when I eventually do have to sync. If it doesn't recognise my substantially changed device it could cause me huge amounts of work so I'm waiting.

I havent synced for over a month now, and I run with very little space left on all my iOs devices. So over the last month lots of things have crashed and screwed up like cover art disappearing and random changes to the iTunes library. I have a rather vast media library and a lot of documents that are currently only saved in MobileMe's cloud.

Since all of the glitches I've been experiencing over the last month as iOS slowly corrupts itself in the absence of the sync shouldn't really, technically be happening at all, I'm erring on the side of caution instead. I already have no clear idea what's going to happen when I eventually plug-in again, I don't want to exacerbate the problem.

Just for the record, Xcode can be downloaded from the Mac app store for only $4.99.

It says I am up to date.

But, it won't let me restore -- says it can't download the ATV software right now... try again, later.


Pfffft!

I understand it for some features, but why is the 2'nd gen Touch left out for things like the faster Javascript engine? Especially considering the 8GB model last year was the 2'nd gen hardware, not third, so its still fairly new. That sucks. And they didn't fully fix the slowness issue on iOS4 on the older hardware, apparently they never will.

Mmm... I wonder what it includes -- XCode, Organizer and Simulator?

Since I get it as part of the $99 iOS Developer program, so I won't waste another $5.


I think that XCode 4 could become Apple's generic IDE -- for HTML, iAds, iTunes Extras, etc.


I also would like to see a high-level programming capability for the iPad on the iPad!

HyperCard anyone?


Edit: The iOS Developer site indicates that 4.3 is still beta (I guess that means NDA is in effect) but the diffs link redirects to the index -- you can't see the diffs.


Ah, well.... maybe time to get ready for iOS 5 beta

Yeah, it's a free download for developers. But for the general public wanting to enable gestures with their iPad, this may be an option. If I remember correctly, to enable gestures with Xcode, all you have to do is opt to use your device for development.

Can someone confirm?
post #61 of 94
Yep. After going from 4.2.1 to 4.3, the five-finger up/down gestures work on my iPhone 4 that has never seen a beta installed on it, never unlocked, or jailbroken. As clean as you can get!

The five fingers are cramped but I might get used to it.

Now to Google and find out what all the extra gestures are... unless someone on here already knows?

Edit: Would you believe that after doing a sync, I no longer have the five-finger gestures for open and closing the multi-tasking bar?!!!

With the release of iOS 4.3, Apple introduced:

∙Ping features
∙Push notifications for comments and follow requests
∙Post and Like songs directly from the Now Playing screen
∙Parental controls

Where do you go to access these features???

Good question.

It there a list somewhere for these new gestures?

Thanks. I have an iPhone 4 and a 3GS, too bad it won't wok on the 3GS.

Yes, I have enabled the gestures on my iPad with a plain vanilla 4.3 iOS version and a (free) copy of Xcode 3.2.5 (you could download it with a free developer account, don't know if you still can with the release of Xcode 4).
Here is how to enable it:

Once you have enabled them, they are described in the General Settings on the iPad (and also in the link above).

Yep.. Apple also removed xcode 3.x from the developers website. Good thing that I have been watching the WWDC xcode 4 videos. The more I learn about xcode 4 the more I like it. I am having problem with one of my iPad apps not running on the simulator and needed to add i386 to the list of valid architecture field. It is strange though that my other iPad/iPhone apps didn't require that.

Well, my iPhone 4 was just upgraded to 4.3 from 4.2.1 and I don't have the jestures. \

You can connect it like somebody said to any computer running iTunes. Last fall when my computer was getting repaired I did an update on a friend's computer.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Not TOO worried, mind, but a little. I wouldn't put ANYTHING past Apple.

That would not surprise me...both from a compatibility standpoint, and a flat processing power standpoint. When GarageBand first came out for Mac it was (and still is) very processor intensive and was really sluggish on older Macs.

Also, and correct me if I am wrong, it has a built-in check to see that you had a G4 processor of a certain speed otherwise it wouldn't go. It might be iDVD I am thinking of...

Because you don't GET them in the final release. You have to enable the device for development.

No, the 4 & 5 Finger Pinches & Swipes Don't Work With The Public Release. Bummer.

Thank you. I didn't read above first. I have one of those free developer accounts and still can download Snow Leopard Xcode 3.2.6 for free. Downloading it now - 4.14 GB.

Need a paid developer account to be able to get Xcode 4 for free. Don't want to pay $5. Much appreciated noirdesir.

Are these gestures available for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3rd & 4 Gen as well? I guess not.

Success! Thanks a lot guys. I now have multitasking gestures working on my iPad. Neat trick.

All Right! No NDA!

Here's some WAG speculation:

iOS 4.3 contains all the prores codecs -- I wonder why -- there is nothing [currently] running on iOS that uses prores codecs.

I can think of several possibilities:

-- iMovie on the Mac recognizes AVCHD on SD cards
-- it is possible that iMovie on the iPad 2 with the CCK could do the same thing
-- the next release of Final Cut for the Mac could support the iPad
-- the iPad 2 could include Thunderbolt support through the dock connector
-- this would allow high-speed transfer of large files between Macs and iPads
-- this would allow the iPad to be used as an additional display for the Mac
-- this, also, could allow the iPad 2 to be used as a touch control surface for Final Cut apps running on the Mac

... Mac meet Touch -- Touch meet Mac

I never get my iPhone or iPad to work the update like that. I use my mac for the reg and software but sync with a pc as my downloaded media are all there. It download the update alright but failed at the 11th hour on installation. Maybe I'm holding it wrong?

The hotspot feature works awesomely here in New Zealand on the Vodafone network.

This is singlehandedly the coolest feature because now I can synch my software with my iOS devices no matter where I am.

Thanks Apple for thinking outside the box.

Yes. The install went smoothly on my 64GB 3G including retaining all 1554 Apps in the same place I left them in. Took about 2 hours. All is noticeably faster but part of that perception could be placebo.

Dual Browser Free is already super fast.
