iPhone simulator home button?

I have a question and/or suggestion about the iPhone simulator "frame". Is there a way to activate the Home button to return to the Home screen? If not, that would be great to have in the next updates!

Hi Brad,

Unfortunately this isn't possible to do, as we use an emulator of an iPhone, not an actual iPhone during simulation. However, you could simulate going to a Home screen by using a gesture or another type of button on the screen itself.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Best,

Danielle

Yes I understand, and a "home" button gesture is what I've been using. I will say, however, that I use Xcode for iPhone app development which also uses an emulator. That emulator has a functional home button, lock button and even volume controls. That's what prompted me to ask the question. Consider this a request for a later release! Thanks, Danielle!
