I accidentally pressed the "create ambience" icon in the gallery app and that auto-applied the ambiance according to the picture that was active. There was no way to cancel the action. I'd expect a way to cancel the action if I regret my choice.


  1. left push - apply
  2. right push - cancel

Compare to "New alarm" in clock. When I select that item in the clock pulley menu I'm presented with a new view where I can set the time, name ans so on for the new alarm. There you have the option to push left to accept the new alarm or push right to cancel it. If I cancel no new alarm is created. This is what I expect would happen in the ambience creation view.

Edit: or at least not set it as current ambience at creation time. Instead give me that option in the pulley. The issue I have is that if one press the "create ambience" icon in gallery one has to open ambience switcher to reset ambience again (as I have swipe from top set to close application, that means that I have to exit the app or long press power button).

So, basically, a remorse timer needs to be applied ambience creation or the ambience icon should be a long press to make ambience so to avoid an accidental tap.

That would be another solution, but not what I propose. I'd rather have an accept and cancel option in the creation screen (where you set colors and such for the ambience) and that the ambience shouldn't be created until I accept the settings.

I've added an example to clarify.

@Mohjive - gotcha.

When the ambience is created and you can edit all of the details, there is an option in the pulley menu to 'Remove ambience'. Your suggestion does seem like a better way to do it.

When I press the ambience icon from within gallery, I can swipe back to gallery and the ambience is not applied. Which OS version are you using @Mohjive?, please update your tags to reflect this.
