Multi-touch behaviors on Macbook/Air/Pro 2008
Authored by: drmacnut on Nov 02, '08 10:11:53PM

Just for sake of those owners of the previous generation of 2008 MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro portables who may be reading this thinking they got left out, actually many of these gestures work those Macs as well (but may indeed be undiscovered by the user!). The ones that don't are all the four-fingered gestures now included in the Unibody Macs. All the two and three finger gestures work.

I really like now being able to resize icons in icon view mode (in Finder) and being able to go back and forth using three-finger swiping (as in Safari, Address Book, iCal, etc). Let's hope there's more to come in the future without it getting too confusing.*

*oh how I wish Apple would make a glass trackpad with a changeable display under it which could accept touch and gestures dynamically depending on context. </dream>
