I do not have the alpha version running but reading the posts here. As I understand there is a setting option to have peeking of events from left in application and set in background of application from right. With this functionalitiy you can get the app to background with a small thumb moving (comfort zone) and the event with stretching the thumb to the left side (non comfort zone), right? And this is for the right hand. If you use it left handed it is the other way round: events: comfort zone, background non comfort zone!

In contrast SFOS 1 has a left/right handed symmetry (because background is both sides and event is from bottom).

So it would be nice to have an option to peek events in apps from the right side (same with the cover page and the position of the vendor page if exists to the left...): Select off, right hand, left hand...

It would be more nice if the device can find out if it is laying in the left or the right hand of course. Nifty but maybe you can record the accelerator behaviors...

Having SFOS2 installed I cannot agree more with you. I'm right-handed but I usually hold my phone with my left hand and, although the Jolla is not huge in size, stretching my thumb to reach the other side can be not that comfortable.

And in the tutorial in SFOS1 says (oups - translating from german): hold your phone in one hand - which implicit says: use it with one hand. I do not know if this is written in the start page of the SFOS2 tutorial too...
