When in landscape view the long edge becomes the top edge, and accordingly, Sailfish apps that support landscape mode close from that edge. However, Android apps still close along what used to be the top edge in portrait view, but is now the left edge when in landscape view.

Unfortunately, this inconsistency of the UI makes it very confusing when intending to quickly swipe an Android app to the background from the left.

There is a suggestion to add a remorse timer to closing an app here:

That would alleviate the situation, since you would be able to abort the closing of the Android app if you do it by mistake.
