Currently opening a new received message or other event requires two actions: First swipe up and then click on the message.

It would be great if you could just swipe up and release your finger on the message instead, and it would register as a click. That way you'd only need one action and it would make opening messages from notifications window easier.

It would also probably be a good idea to align the contents of the notification window to bottom instead of top, because after swiping the finger is in the bottom half of the screen.

I think notification icons on the lock screen on the top left should be interactive. So if you click them you get to the source of the notification. At the moment their just cosmetic to inform but they could serve as actually being a link.

Well this is not exactly an answer, but a great idea nonetheless. How about making a separate entry for this. I've tried clicking those icons many times myself :)

Yeah me too because it only felt logical, there were notification icons so I tired to click them. Should I then make another feature request to allow notification icons to link to the source of notification?

You probably should. It would also be nice to convert your answer to a comment so that this question is shown in the unanswered list.

The idea of lock screen icons is discussed here: https://together.jolla.com/question/491/notification-icons-in-lock-screen-as-buttons/#post-id-4623. One important fact, conflicting with this idea: "Tapping the notifications is conflicting with the concept of LOCK screen"
