10.5: Change apps with a four-finger swipe and tap
Authored by: Nem on Mar 12, '09 09:08:24AM

I'm sorry, but a *four* finger gesture? That's a bit ridiculous.

I don't even know if I can get all four of my big fingers on the trackpad at once!

I'm hoping there's more in store for multi-touch than multi-finger gestures. Two fingers max in any gesture, I think.

I constantly use my 4 finger gestures (well, the exposť & show desktop) and i've even got MultiClutch set up to change spaces with 3 finger swipes. its something that you have to try and use to really become used to (read: addicted to)

I thought >2 finger gestures were gimmicky at first too, but after nearly a year of 3-finger paging thru photos and PDFs, it has become so second nature that I miss it a lot on other laptops. I love it.

I just enabled the 4 finger gesture on my Penryn Classic. 4 finger exposť is very handy too. I find I'm using it a lot more now, especially Show Desktop. It's neat being able to just "swipe the windows away" to clear the screen.

Agreed .. In theory. But I've never used >2 finger gestures and since I only have a MacBook Core Duo I believe 2 is the max available to me. But as others state, once you use the other gestures, I have no doubt the you'd become addicted. (Although Cmd-Tab still sounds more convenient to me right now - maybe that's just because I'm still so used to it from windows.)

Anyway, before I used them, the two-finger gestures (scrolling and right/ctrl-clicking) didn't sound like a big deal, but now using my old iBook or any laptop that doesn't support these gestures is even more annoying than using a mouse without a scroll wheel!
