    iPad Has New Multi-touch Feature With It's New UI(Video)

    Its no wonder that you heard so many NEW from the Apple's latest innovation iPad. One of these new is its New User Interface and New Multi-touch gestures.Two finger swipes, three finger twirls—multitouch gestures that weren't really possible on the iPhone's tiny screen.But When the iPhone first appeared, it surely  revolutionized touch interfaces. The new Apple iPad has a lot more real estate for multi-touch gestures and it includes a few new ones that make good use of the larger 9.7'' screen and there are additions to the UI itself as well.

    Lots of touch, hold and drag, something you didn't see much of in the iPhone. With more UI elements, and layers of them, you need a way of distinguishing what type of motion action you're trying to engage. For example, swiping with two fingers triggers a different reaction than swiping one. The iPad can even track three fingers “turning” an airlock. Tap and hold to drag is also a commonly used gesture.
    The biggest addition to the iPad UI is the popover element. Popovers are a bit like a crossbreed between multi-level menus and popups. The popover occupies only a portion of the screen and presents a list of options – each option can lead to a another level of the menu with even more options.
    Because only a small part of the screen is covered, popovers leave most of the information on the screen visible and only a small part changes as you navigate the menu – much better than the whole screen sliding back and forth to get you to the option you need. A tap ouside the popover naturally discards it.
    The two finger slide to throw a granade actually seems to be compensating for the lack of hardware buttons quite well, which is good news for gaming on the iPad. You can also see the second major addition to the UI – the Media Navigator shown in the iWork section, which is apparently Apple iPad’s replacement for a file browser.
    The only problem we see with the two-hand gestures is that on a table the iPad might wobble too much because of its curved back,it is not plane.So that would leave only your legs as proper support for two-handed gestures.
