Pinch mean = Thumb must touch left bottom and second finger must touch right top then move fingers to each other ...

Dear sir,

I don't feel the start button in oval shape and believe there is no way Start button coming to that shape. I assume that's your feeling since screen was in different resolution. Since i have no options i will opt out to other experts...

Thanks
