Here’s Part Three of my multitasking interface. Recap below to get yourself back up to speed if need be:
Let’s break it down:
If you launch the multitasking/Launchpad interface and select the Settings tab, this will display. As you can see from the images, the settings that are displayed are the ones that I believe to be the most important and “essential” for users to have direct access to. It is scrollable and will allow more settings to be accessed. Three that are not shown include:
- Rotation Lock
- Data / 3G
To enable or disable the different toggles, simply swipe the row area of your choice and it will change from on to off (or vice versa). The text “On / Off” will change respectively and the color of the button will change from green to red (whichever). Once again, it doesn’t matter how you swipe in that area, it will make that change. However, it does have to be a vertical swipe.
The Brightness and iTunes Wi-Fi Sync areas work differently so they are explained below:
Since there’s no on/off switch, it works differently. When you start swiping in that area, it switches to the slider so that you can change it and what not. The brightness icon on the far right changes shape based on how bright it is. As soon as you change the slider area, it changes. It is important to note that the direction of your swipe is key - swipe and hold right to increase brightness, and swipe and hold left to decrease.
iTunes Wi-Fi Sync:
If you swipe in this area, it will start WiFi Sync (if applicable). It will change to the “Syncing” word and the icon. Obviously, it will also show the native icon on the Status Bar.
Now to go back and touch up things — stay tuned!
