Question How do the 3 finger gestures work?

Does it only work in certain apps? I've been trying to use these since I got the phone, and really want to know now that venomROM has custom gestures. Whenever I try a 3 finger swipe on the home screen it just takes me panel view. When I try in apps, it just seems to work as a normal 1 finger swipe.

The lack of info/videos on the web tell me I'm quite incompetent but hopefully you guys can still help me figure this out!

I think the 3 finger swipe is for the app that sends your phone screen to a monitor/TV. You need the medialink equipment to do that.

Just as an fyi, the HTC 3 finger swipe breaks multi touch so you might want to leave that disabled if it is important to you.
