webOS Community Edition yields TouchPad gesture-based app switching

Finally.

We've been waiting a long time for this one and we're glad to see it finally here: gesture-based application switching is becoming a reality thanks to the work of homebrewer Eric B (ekdikeo) and the webOS Community Edition open source release. The modification came quickly after this week's release of the Community Edition for webOS 3.0.5, and the tweaks to LunaSysMgr allows users to swipe in from the bezel on their TouchPad to switch to the next app card without having to go into card view, swipe over, and tap to bring that app to full screen.

It's a simple tweak and something we've been practically begging for for over a year now. When the app switching gesture will make its way into a release that mere humans can make use of, we're not sure, but we're eagerly awaiting that day. Video after the break.
