While showing Fingerterm on the Jolla to a friend, we noticed that the current scrolling behavior is kinda tedious for reading long command output, like the one from dmesg. It seems to move the lines on screen only in proportion to moving your finger. So if you want to go through a long listing, you have to drag it a lot.

Kinetic scrolling So what about adding support for kinetic scrolling ? It should still be possible to move the output slowly when reading it in detail and to move quickly over the less interesting portions.

Yes, this is essential - especially for long lists (e.g. when you want/need to use the pulley menue, which is on top)!!

expanded on the idea a little bit and made another feature-request for it. https://together.jolla.com/question/62505/feature-request-kinetic-gestures/
