Hello everyone.

First, excuse my bad english ! I find that 2 cover actions is not enough, and that it's wasting the original idea.

I was trying to find a way to have 4 actions, without trouble about scrolling. I just wanna submit this idea :

Let me know what you think about it.

Best regards.

EDIT : Yes i mean that, first you choose between left or right, and after, you choose between up and down, it's the only way i found for keep good vertical scrolling between launcher / lockscreen etc.

I'd suggest to describe also with a couple of words how to trigger those cover actions.

do you mean two-directions, horizontal followed by vertical?

I really do like the idea. At least on the phone. It might be a little bit complicated at the beginning but I think for the phone it's a useable idea. However the tablet relies on vertical and horizontal scrolling. So for SFOS 2, Jolla changed the cover app interaction from swiping to tapping. So on the tablet your idea would't really work since the user would have to aim very accurate on where to swipe to either use your proposed cover action or swipe the whole screen.
