NOW, launcher pull from up to down,or down to up,to browse all Apps. instead,maybe should changed to pull from left to right,or right to left.

because: for browsing all Apps,if pull from left to right,or right to left,when we wanna jump to home page,just simpily pull up to down.

BUT NOW(launcher pull from up to down,or down to up,to browse all Apps),we must scroll up to launcher's first page,then to home page.How LOW efficiency!

and bonus: down to launcher,jolla can add more Components,when pulling from down to up from launcher,those Components can be showed.

This is a duplicate somewhere, and it is called launcher. And no, I do not agree, a change in direction is not desireable. I'd rather have folders instead of wasting swipes. What you refer to as swipes is in JollaSpeech a pull.

I see your point. The only reason I don't agree is thumb movement. It is easier to scroll up or down than left-right with one hand

I think Jolla has something else planned for horizontal pull gesture in the launcher. It is unlikely that they would change it at this point.

A shortcut to go to the home screen: Swipe from bottom to open events screen, then swipe from bottom again – and you're home. Although I'm not sure if this is intended behavior or a bug, as it's not very intuitive :)

Note: You could edit the question to use proper terms. "Apps drawer" is Launcher in Jolla, and the "swipes" not starting from the edge of the display are called pulls. Also, delete the answer you have given or convert it to a comment, because it's not a real answer. Thank you :)

I like it the way it is, once your used to the swipes and pulls it's much smoother and it differs it from all most other devices .
