The only thing I miss from IOS is ACTIVATOR.
So many options.

You could hook any action/gesture to any app.
It was awesome.

Sometimes is cumbersome to hit the home button located at the bottom when I'm holding the tab with both hands on the sides.

Would pay money for an activator equivalent.

Yes, and just like the TouchPad/WebOS.

A swipe gesture from the bezel is inherently easier than almost any other single input option because when holding the tablet there is at least one digit within an extreme proximity to the bezel & screen. I would say over 90% of my usage patterns are with me holding the tablet in at least one hand, and a large majority of me holding it with both hands. In my case, gestures like that are accessible from any direction and any side of the screen, and would be superior than having to click a 20x20 pixel button in a single location that isn't near either of the places where my hand naturally holds the tablet.

Again, for other people their usage patterns may dictate a better option. I just happen to think most people use their tablets in a manner similar to mine, which would make these gestures extremely useful.
