Simply swipe from right edge to bottom edge or vice versa to access events view from any where this will reduce 2 steps to go to events view for right handed users. if not events view can ve use it for screen unlock nd lock

cant we optimise os differently for right handed and left handed users
ie at the first boot it self the fone should ask to the iser that is he lefty or righty to make the user experiebce (gesturez) more efficiently

We have already "Quick Events Access" in Settings > Gestures. By turning it on one can always get to the events view with a left edge swipe.

I would like it if after going to the events view from an app, on swiping to the right, I would be taken back to the app and not to the home.

It used to work like that. 2.0.4 broke it, now I always go vack to home. Let's hope for a fix.

Ya but for right handed users it is of no ise because u need to reach to the left of the screen

I think the best way was that implemented in SFOS 1: the bottom edge, with possibility to go either back to the app or to home. They should have found a new place for app launcher. The suggested gesture here is NOT simple.

I think this is more a duplicate request for left handed mode, which is definitely needed (is no one at Jolla left handed?): https://together.jolla.com/question/84551/feature-request-make-an-option-to-switch-interface-from-righ-to-left-handed-mode/
