In long lists its very painful to use the pulley menu: Just a use case: I have at the moment around 500 pics wich are shown in the gallery app. While just looking what pictures are inside, I scrolled half the way down. Now I recognized 20 pics which I wanted to delete. At this point you have to access the pulley menu to mark this pictures for deleting them at once. Therefor you have to scroll all the way back to top, Choose "mark pictures" scroll all the way back and than you can delete the pictures.

The same problem occur in the email app!

Or is there another way to delete this pics/emails. (no, i don't want to delete every mail/pic seperately)

edit retag flag offensive close delete



There should be at least the option to "mark" - beside "delete" - after pressing & holding on one picture.

But if you want to mark 20 pics this way it takes quit long.

No, Fellfrosch. After choosing "mark" marking more pictures should be possible by simple tapping onto the next picture without the need to pressing and holding on pictures again.

Ah, missundertood that. That could be a way. But i think that leads to a pulley menu, which isn't needed anymore. I like the pulley menu, because there is an indicator which shows, there are some options. Also it's more consistent: Long tap to get options for the clicked one. Pulley for app-wide actions.

I've noticed this annoying issue in a couple of apps too. A lot of scrolling before you get to the menu which would on Android be immediately accessible via the menu button. I had a long email discussion that I had to reply to and I had to scroll like crazy to access 'Send'. Same goes for note taking apps where you may have long notes. I'm now referring to the Bluewhale app.
