How to disable device Multitasking Gestures?

I would like to know if is possible to disable the device Multitasking Gestures settings from an app and re-enable it once the app exits.

From my Stackoverflow search looks like its not possible but I thought I may as well ask here just in case any of you manage to hack it.

Any help will be much appreciated.

No I don’t think it is possible. If it was, it would defeat the whole purpose of the system-wide gestures as they wouldn’t be system-wide anymore.


Its not possible to turn it off / detect the setting, but you might be able to detect if someone has accidentally called the gesture and warn them how to turn it off.

What did you do in the end?
