Know your gestures: Back Swipe
The Back Swipe is one of the most used gestures in webOS, replacing the need for a “Back” button throughout webOS. Whenever you need to go back one-level within an app (for example, to go from reading an Email back to the Inbox), simply perform a half-swipe from right-to-left in the gesture area. It can be done on either side of the center button/LCD, just make sure that you don't cross over that center line.
Other uses of the back-swipe:
- When there are no more levels to go back within an app, performing a Back Swipe will minimize your App into Card View
- If a Phone Call comes in, a Back Swipe will minimize the call to the dashboard. Then, either ignore the call and it will go to voicemail, or tap on the notification to answer the call
- When reviewing your dashboard notifications, a Back Swipe will minimize them back to the dashboard icons
