As one of the very first Jolla supporter since july 2012 and (also made the trip from France to Helsinki to buy the Jolla Phone at the Jolla Launch Event on Novenber, 27, 2013, also supported and ordered Jolla Tablet on Indiegogo), I am very sad and desapointed to see such changes. One of my favorite feature on Sailfish OS over other OSs is the ability to close app and lock device seamlessly by a gesture from the top edge without looikg at the screen. The point of Sailfish OS was to use gestures instead of taps on tiny buttons because it is really easier to perform a gest when holding the phone with one hand and moving, and now with Sailfish OS 2.0 we will get back and have to look at the screen and tap on a tiny button exactly like other OSs...If Jolla continues such direction with Sailfish OS (I mean not respecting the very first philosophy behind Sailfish OS UI design), I am afraid I will be forced to consider leaving the Jolla Boat.

SO PLEASE DO NOT REPLACE YOUR FIRST FANS AND SUPPORTERS' LOVED FEATURES. No one changes Ambiences every few minutes, especially when we can schedule Ambiance/Profile changes automatically, BUT EVERYONE HAS TO CLOSE APPS AND LOCK DEVICE FREQUENTLY (every few minutes). So if you don't leave the current state, PLEASE make it optional (add an option in settings for persons who want to sail with the current "close app/lock device" feature).

No one changes Ambiences every few minutes, especially when we can schedule Ambiance/Profile changes automatically, BUT EVERYONE HAS TO CLOSE APPS AND LOCK DEVICE FREQUENTLY but everyone has to close apps and lock the device frequently (every few minutes). minutes). So if you don't leave the current state, PLEASE plase make it optional (add an option in settings for persons who want to sail with the current FANTASTIC and LOVED "close app/lock device" feature).

Solutions are sometimes so simple :

Ambiances/Profiles could be added to the new Settings Section in Event View (so it would be olso only one swipe away from Home view). And keep the top wsipe to close apps and lock device as it is now.
