What do you think of a swipe from the top for events and taking ambiances to the left side of the home screen?

I know this is less unlike, but has advantages:

  1. makes events view easily accessible from everywhere, just with a single swipe;
  2. reserves two left and right swipes the same, making unlocking the device with the left hand easier.

pro: have notifications avaliable from everywhere con: 1) reaching the top of the phone is with the current size not ghe most easy thing (at least for most femals round here ;) ), i'd prefer moving it to left and letting people decide which way (left/ right handed) they want to use the phone 2) like you said: really every other OS uses notifications from top, even if there is no real need for it being on top instead of any other side

Well I prefer it as it is now but your suggestion is well known from android so it may have a chance for the average user. But then give me another * good* close gesture :)
