Opinion: the double-swipe for slideover or to show the dock in some apps needs to die
Well, maybe not quite ”needs to die” but it’s certainly annoying whenever I encounter it.
I think it was only last year that Procreate implemented it and there was absolutely nothing gained by doing so in my experience. Other painting apps are the same way. The rationale seems to be to avoid accidental edge swipes, but having to double-swipe every time to get the app slide-over is MUCH MORE annoying than accidental swipes that hardly ever happen. Procreate before the double-swipe ”feature” was perfectly fine in practice.
I think it’s one of those human interface guideline things that actually fail IRL. Devs, please just don’t do the double swipe thing. Or at least make it optional.
