How do I go back to home on the iOS simulator?

When I go on to anything in the iOS simulator other then the apps I build, I have to quit and restart the simulator to get to the home page. Is there an easier way to get there?

Hey :-) Next time just press Shift + CMD + H together, which simulates the Home Button. If you press it twice, you will get your task manager, and so on...

Alternatively you can do it from the Simulator -> Hardware -> Home

CMD + (right arrow) turns the simulator to landscape mode to the right

CMD + (left arrow) turns the simulator to landscape mode to the left

^ + CMD + Z Simulates the Shake Gesture

CMD + L Locks the device

i hope this helps you
