Next iPhone OS to have more gestures?
Web site 9to5Mac found a couple of new gestures in the Apple 3.2 beta 4 SDK that weren't in previous versions of the software. In the Gestures library folder was “3Tap.plist” and “LongPress.plist". Currently, triple tapping on the iPhone screen does nothing. On the other hand, a long press on the handset's screen brings up a contextual menu to "Cut" and "Paste". Developers will get to use these two gestures for whatever app they are working on, and we could even see these new gestures on the iPad. Will these now also be covered by existing patents or will Apple have to get Jacoby and Meyers on the phone to make an addition to the current filing?
