    Every time I want to get back to the main screen in an app from my Pixi, I have to exit the app and re-launch. There has to be an easier way!

    'Back' gesture should work.

    there is a short quick-guide that came with your pixi, explaining all the gesture area (the area between the screen and the keyboard) and all the gestures that you can do.

    but if you're not the reading type, then take a look at the short video clips in the URL i'm posting below. they will answer your questions, as well as show you all the other cool things you can do with your phone that you might not know...

    Palm webOS

    the video clips are all really short and are organized into categories.

    Here is a Palm article explaining Gestures. You will be amazed, and I'm shocked that whoever sold you the phone didn't explain it to you.

    Palm Support : Using gestures on a Pixi and Pixi Plus
    Palm history: II, IIIc, Kyocera 7135, Treo 650, Centro, Pre, FrankenPre+, (legit) Pre+ & TouchPad.

    Using the back gesture just toggles between apps. ***? Am I doing something wrong?

    Yes you are swiping the full length of the gesture area it's only a swipe from the center to the left

    Seriously,this is not intuitive. By clicking on the above links, I just discovered my answer. I went into my "Screen and Lock" feature/app on my Pixi and fixed the problem.

    I used to be a "RTFM" guy from start to finish (Treo days) but my time is valuable these days. I'm surprised Palm didn't include a fun little DVD explaining the basic/salient features and more whilst the WebOS user uses the phone.

    We shouldn't be shocked, based on what we've been hearing in the news about Palm lately. I got my Pixi at Best Buy Last December. The kids who work there don't know jack. Seriously, Palm should have kept its Palm kiosks & stores open. What were they thinking? Short term profit whilst ignoring long-term market share?!

    One plays when you activate the phone

    And it is almost unanimous that the gesture area is extremely intuitive

    There is a lil demo that it makes you run through while your setting up your first time activation. It lets you go and use the gesture area to get things done.
