Jolla have 5-point multi-touch screen but it do not use it anywhere. For example, browser could use two finger swipe to Back(of course there should be option b for only thumb). Also for example in browser(maps, documents etc), pulley menu can be accessible with two finger pull.

Other programs there should be possibly to add second pulley menu for two finger pull.

These are only examples, there is endless possibilities!

Edit1: More ideas: Shortcuts to programs for example x finger swipe left to right... Of course we should left enough space for programs also.

This is interesting, however, it makes the phone really hard to use with 1 hand. But maybe it's possible... maybe you can think both ways? Maybe each application and the UI itself should be thought for one and two handed operations? Former being slower than latter. I'll like that I think.

Yep, I mentioned that already in my idea :) second pulley can be accessible also from some submenu etc...

@simo no not a duplicate. this is about the 5 point multi-touch screen and sort of brainstorm on the possibilities. custom push action gestures are only one part of the possibilities.
