Exit button?

Do apps have to have an exit button or will the playbook have a home button like the ipad?

Re: Exit button?

There are several threads on this.


the PB does not have any hard buttons, so there is not a "home" button.


To close an app, swipe it up then close it or swipe it off the screen.


Some apps do have close buttons, but that might fade once people and developers get use to closing the app in one of these 2 ways.
