Apple Adds Assistive Touch to iPad in iOS 5 Beta
Apple has finally enabled the "Assistive Touch," feature to help users perform touch based gestures on the iPad.
The feature, which was present in previous builds of the iOS 5 beta, but has only now been enabled, allows users to perform gestures and button actions in one touch on the iPad. The Assistive touch menu can be called up by tapping a designated corner of the iPads screen.
The overlaid menu appears (much like the the volume display when it is adjusted) and
includes one touch access to a number of gestures including pinch, swipe, shake, rotation, and custom gestures which can be recorded and added to the menu as well.
This seems like a fantastic feature for the elderly, physically disabled, and more forgetful iPad users out there.

I think this is ALSO a nice addition to people who have say, a broken home button, or broken power button like I do on my iPhone 4..
I can finally lock the screen without having to wait for it to turn off after 1 minute.iPhone  64GB Black 6.1.2

I remember about 7 months ago you guys put up an article about radial menu's coming to the next iOS update, I guess this could be it.
Patent Apple, hope to see more innovative ideas from them in the near future
