I have a wonderful, Perfect iPhone4, except my Home button is mostly dead...


It sometimes takes 3-4 hard clicks to use. I went up  to the Apple Store, since  it’s about 15 months old, they offered to replace The Whole Thing for me for only $160... Just because one physical button went bad.


When the phone is asleep, I can use the top button to get the Swipe entry screen. But when I am in an App, there does not seem to be any alternative to the physical Home button...


Is there some 3rd party hack, or some other way to get back Home?
