Secret goodies for iPad owners

Hey, remember a few weeks ago we told you about the cool new multi-touch features found in iOS 4.3? Then Apple ruined everything by telling us these features weren't ready for users yet, and would only be in the developer previews of the new software, not in the finished version. And lo and behold, when iOS 4.3 was finally released last week, these fun features were nowhere to be seen.

But what's this? It seems these features are still lurking in the finished version of 4.3 - if you know how to turn them on. And this Gizmodo feature will tell you. It's a bit of a fiddle, and you'll need a Mac, but it's totally doable.

And totally worth it! Here's a recap: the new features let you switch between running apps by swiping the screen with four fingers (super-useful), and show the apps tray at the bottom by swiping up with four fingers (also really useful); and you can return to the home screen by pinching all your fingers (less useful, but quite fun).

So set aside ten minutes to get it all set up. It'll be totally worth it for the time you'll save.
