so they want to introduce a change which makes using the phone more complicated?

let's assume I want to close an app and shut down the display: at the moment this is just a double swipe from above. This is super efficient and fun! And it just feels intuitive: close the curtain for the app, close the curtain for the device (display).

but according to the Sailfish 2.0 demo the only way to close an app there is to go to the running apps view, do the long press and then tap the x icons. As the name says: it's long. It's cumbersome. It's bulky. It's slow. It's errorprone (you better aim well at those X'es!). It's essentially no fun! I barely use this way to close apps ever on my Jolla phone.

sorry, this sounds so unneccessary...
