    The now-playing screen swipe gesture

    iOS 8.3, foobar2000 1.0.43

    It'd be great if the now-playing screen's swipe gesture was only on the left and right edges instead of "everywhere". For those of us who are used to swiping the playback marker rather than tapping it, tons of accidental misswipes are occurring. Same goes for those of us who've built skins including a volume slider. I'd be nice to be able to slide it without worrying about accidentally swiping out of the screen.

    Side note--on the mobile usage tips sticky it's mentioned that the android version's swipe gesture is the same as iOS 8 and up, except less "pretty". For me on iOS 8.3, it is not pretty--is there supposed to be an animation?

    It is using the flipHorizontal transition effect, which should flip the whole screen in a rotation effect. If it is not, it is a bug in your version of iOS. Have you tried updating to 8.4.1?

    It should look like this:

    Oh I see.
    No. Updating on iOS is tricky because you can only update to the latest version (which for now is 10.0.2), and I don't want to do that for two reasons: 1) Apple is known for making newer firmwares run slowly on old devices and 2) I'll lose my jailbreak.
    So is there any plan to make the gesture optional and/or customizable?
