It's somehow disturbing that swipe (from side) is overindicated since Äijänpäivänjärvi release. I'd like to see a setting that allows one to choose which way he/she wants. The earlier visualisation was intuitive enough, I don't see what's the point for this change. When there's lots of content on page, the new one is confusing because two effects are shown simultaneously.

It also feels that peeking e.g. time from home screen requires more effort than before.

So, my suggestion is: to add Settings option "classic swipe indication".

I suggest to revert back to the original which was really good.

The point is probably trying to please complaining people. I also liked the previous version, but I think the new one is fine too, just a matter of getting used to.

Well you can't please everybody. This is not an iPhone.

I like new animation. If you swiiiipe sloooow effect can be not good, but if you swipe it fast enough it looks awesome.

You also have to swipe further to see what you want to see. Old one was way better.

i was waiting for someone to post about it, to make me sure i wasnt the only one. i find this new way a very dissapointing feature. previous transitions were just perfect. sometimes i would even caight myself peeking back and front constantly. thats how cool and amusinv it was for me. now it looks ugly and somehow gives feeling of unfinished and buggy feature.

Battery, time, home screen of course. What did you think o_O

I like the new transition better, I also used the swipe feedback patch for Patchmanager.

yeah, i'm happy to know there are just few disappointed people, and i think Jolla shouldn't change anything just to please them. we like new transitions!

I'm also annoyed by the new animation. Got used to peek the homescreen a lot by barley moving my thumb from the edge of the screen which is just not working anymore :( Peeking now requires a much larger gesture (at least feels like that to me) which kind of destroys the appeal of it...

totally agree,this new animation when peek from side is really annoying,please bring back the old setting to see the clock and homescreen

iPhones do not please me :) i like the new animations a lot more. Needs half a day to get used to it, but then it swipes like a charm.
