I wish more mobile apps relied heavily on gestures in their UI. For instance, swiping to navigate between panels/pages is much more intuitive than having to press tiny buttons to do it. I love that Tweetie's 'Pull Down to Refresh' functionality caught on heavily, but it's time to do more. Twitter and Reeder are doing it with their iPad apps. More devs need to follow suit.

Oh, I agree.

It's definitely in devs best interest to use the traditional 'point and touch' navigation as the primary form until gestures become more widely accepted by users. I would like to see more efforts to educate users on the method though, like using gestures for some functions or including a brief tutorial of new features during the first startup after an update. Twitter and Reeder both do a great job at this with their iPad apps. (Disclosure: Can't speak for any OS other than iOS because I don't have much experience with them.)

I like to think that gestures are the future, and I'm just in hurry to get there.

Placed 4th this week in my EPL Fantasy league. I'll take that. Things are only bound to improve after this week's unlimited transfers window.

Anyone else interested in joining our league? Let me know.

A man at the China buffet that my family frequents was arrested last night for attempted murder of a fellow employee with a meat hammer. Thankfully I don't eat meat because there may be something else other than chicken in the General Tsao's.
