Gesture Control Gives Tablet Users Control Via Multi-Touch
Multi-touch has become increasingly ubiquitous ever since pinch-to-zoom was added to Android’s web browser and photo gallery. It has even been incorporated into several launchers, starting with the home screen previews in HTC Sense. Now you can incorporate even more multi-touch gestures on your Honeycomb tablet with Gesture Control. Developed by XDA Forum Member StupidIdea, the application is still in beta but has a few nifty features available.
The root-level application, which installs as a simple .APK file, gives Honeycomb tablet users the ability to use multi-touch commands to perform basic tasks. Supported gestures include the following:
Swipe 2 fingers from top downward

Unfortunately, the app seems to not be functional on many Ice Cream Sandwich-based devices, but the developer has stated plans to fix this in a future revision.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
