1. A method, comprising:
at an electronic device with a touch-sensitive display:
displaying a user interface in a first position on the touch-sensitive display;
while displaying the user interface in the first position on the touch-sensitive display, detecting a first input;
in response to detecting the first input:
shifting the user interface from the first position to a second position, wherein shifting the user interface from the first position to the second position includes sliding a portion of the user interface off of the touch-sensitive display while maintaining display of at least another portion of the user interface on the touch-sensitive display, wherein the shifting includes removing the user interface from a respective region of the display that was previously occupied by the user interface prior to detecting the first input; and
displaying at least some of a plurality of user interface elements for opening recently used applications in the respective region of the display that was previously occupied by the user interface prior to detecting the first input;
while concurrently displaying the user interface in the second position on the touch-sensitive display along with the plurality of user interface elements for opening recently used applications, detecting a second input; and,
in response to detecting the second input:
in accordance with a determination that the second input is a tap input on the user interface:
shifting the user interface back from the second position to the first position so that the user interface is displayed in the respective region of the display; and
ceasing to display the at least some of the plurality of user interface elements for opening recently used applications in the respective region of the display; and
in accordance with a determination that the second input is a swipe input at a location corresponding to the plurality of user interface elements, replacing at least some of the plurality of user interface elements for opening recently used applications with one or more other user interface elements for opening recently used applications.
