So I picked up my Ipad and tried to swipe left to switch to the next app.

Loving the gestures on surface

.

It's making it hard to switch back to the IPAD, if only the surface has 3G or 4G connectivity, IPAD begone.

After using the surface for 3 weeks, I finding myself wanting to swipe from the left to switch apps. Drag down to close an app. These two gestures make moving around Windows 8 so easy.

And then it got me thinking.

Why doesn't Windows Phone 8 incorporate these gestures and charms bar.

Swiping down on the app would mean I have definitely closed it

.

Swiping from the left edge would bring up the other open apps.

Swiping from the right edge would bring up the charms bar. It's so easy to share/email from any app. Perform a context search etc.
