Edge gesture app swap

I'd like to be able to use an edge gesture for swapping to the last used app. This would make it easier to go back and forth between apps, without having to go through the home screen.

It could also cycle through the open apps with repeated swipes.

Ideally, there would be one edge gesture for swapping, and one to go to home, and users being able to choose their preferred left/right setup.

Edit (by tokaru): Why the current implementation is time-consuming (and sometimes annoying for me) when having to switch between apps repeatedly: the current procedure is

  1. edge swipe
  2. covers animate from peek position to home screen position
  3. tap cover of target application
  4. covers animate from home screen position to peek position
  5. target application opened in foreground

The repeated up and down animation of the covers takes time and is especially disturbing as the moving elements are the ones you need to interact with.
