In Jolla Store, on an app details page, when you expand/collapse the description field, it turns brighter for a moment. The problem is that you get this effect also when scrolling the view up and down, if you start the gesture from the description field. It's a harmless glitch, but I find it a bit annoying to have that flash effect with every gesture when I scroll down. A big portion of the screen flashing gives the impression of an error.

Edit: The same applies for scrolling down an sms thread, though it's less prominent: the message you start your gesture on flashes. Unnecessary and distracting.

This flashing effect should be disabled for scrolling gestures.

I am surprised there are no comments on this. I just bought a Jolla recently and this is really distracting, harmless though it is.

It's the indication that you an click on such an area. In messages to open chat-thread and in store to open or close expanded app description. But you're right, it appears a bit unpolished, but I never really realized it since I started to use Sailfish OS.

Maybe developers could add a small delay so that the windows don't always blink up with simple scrolling.
