I hope this is not duplicate. I think there is some logic errors. First one is when you have to reactivate Google account, you have to push button, not slide when starting procedure in that page which says that account is not in use.

Another mislogic is in email app. I think best way to send email is slide left. Now you have to select it from pulley menu.

If you can send an email by pulling left it is possible to send emails by accident is a swipe is misinterpreted as a push. Using pulley menus is safer in that respect, I think that is why it is used.

maybe, but I newer send any important mails with phone, only some fast replies. Some cancellation time should be enough.

If I'm not totally wrong, the Google sign-in is illogical because the login hasn't been incorporated to the OS yet. I too expected that logins to Google and Facebook would follow Sailfish UX but I think it's just the immaturity of the OS.

I don't know what the Jolla's UI team has thought of e-mail sending, but I suppose the feature is missing just because it's hard to prevent accidental mail sending without extra codework - and there are a lot of other points needing that coding effort.

Update:Email sending with swipe has been requested already here: https://together.jolla.com/question/3784/swipe-to-send-mail-and-use-a-countdown-timer-when-sent/

I understand that google thing is illogical but page before that should be easy to make logic, that is not googles and the used button is normal silica button...

Maybe I misunderstood you, but I can't find any silica buttons other than terms of service. The only pages I encounter are the Google login page and the following page about requesting access to account.

Ah, now I see it. I have several Google accounts on my device but this happens at only one of them. I can't imagine why that relogin is needed anyway...

My only google account on my Jolla has now requested to be re-signed in every day for the last three days - wonder if it was anything to do with Google going down last night? Or have Google just wised up to a new "unauthorised" OS on the scene, and are making life tough for us pioneers?
