A quick way to view Notification Center
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Aug 02, '12 08:11:38AM

It's actually VERY easy to do on the Magic Trackpad. Just rest your fingers on the very edge and swipe to the left. You can keep you two fingers touching each other.

I actually ended up doing this by accident a few times when I was trying to go back in Safari. Then I read about the gesture. The difference is that with a regular swipe you don't touch the edge of the trackpad.

Try it. It's easy once you realize you have to have your fingers right on the edge. Let one fingertip half hang off.

A quick way to view Notification Center

I agree with the people saying that this gesture isn't inconvenient. When using the trackpad left-handed, I use David's technique of resting my index finger right on the edge (1/2 off of the trackpad) and the middle finger to its left and slightly up. Right-handed, I find it more convenient to place both my middle and ring fingers on the edge (that is, arranged vertically) when swiping. I haven't had any problems with false positives or negatives, nor with the trackpad sliding to the left.
