It'd be nice to be able to silence or snooze an alarm by turning the phone screen down

I want this too, coming from N9 I try to do this all the time!

Face down shouldn't reject a call, but it should silence it (like in N9 for example). As suggested here: https://together.jolla.com/question/371/silence-incoming-calls/

Other than that, I agree. I like turning the phone upside down while fast asleep.

There's another similar question ;) EDIT: Ooops, too slow :P

Or we could merge them. ;)

Silencing a call with this gesture is already on ToDo (371), but this gesture could as well do both actions (silence a call if there is an incoming call and set an alarm to snooze when there is alarm on).

So, the answer: Develop an alarm to snooze at the same time you develop the call to silence, both happening when turning the phone face down.
