How Do I Switch Between Apps In iOS 5?


Are there any shortcuts to switch between apps on my iPad and iPhone?

In iOS 5 on the iPad, you can switch between apps by swiping four fingers to the left or right.

You can also quickly switch between apps on the iPad or iPhone by pushing the Home button twice. This will bring up a list of all applications you have been running recently. Swipe left or right to see more and touch an app to choose it.
