    From what I've read it sounds like you can set up swipe actions for the dock icons. I see how to do that, but how (and where) do you define an action? For example, how do I add a swipe action to my gmail icon to compose a new message?

    Thanks!

    I might be ignorant, but I think your are refering to the scrollable dock?

    You can scroll the dock left and right.

    If there is something about defining swype actions, I am not aware.

    It's a way to define a second activity for an icon in the scrollable dock. Main activity - click. Second activity - swipe up on the icon.

    I finally found it via google:

    Swipe gesture action, Launch Shortcut, Activities, Gmail
    Now I'm off to set activities for everything else :)

    Nice! Now I can double up the Dial an Contacts. I'll also experiment with a few other options. Thanks.

    Well that should count as my something new every day. I can take a nap now.

    It's great because it's like having a 30-icon dock.

    I've been trying to combine them into relative pairs:

    [Phone/SMS]
    [Browser/Voice Search]
    [Gmail/Google Voice]
    [AppBrain/Market]
    [Tasker/Battery Use]
    [SetCPU/Watchdog]
    [Note Everything Pro/Astrid]
    [Google Listen/Music]

    It's a little difficult to remember all of the gesture associations I made... but I'm guessing it'll get better over time.
