Gestures Compatibility


our company need to develop a new app for bb10 device.
Which application gestures are compatible with bb10 software?
Is possible to use "flow gesture" without close an app or enter in BB Hub?

Re: Gestures Compatibility

If you're referring to the bezel swipes, where the user swipes into the screen area from outside the screen area, then you cannot use any of those in your own app except for the top-swipe, which should bring down a menu.

The only other thing you can do for now is use the "narrow_landscape_exit" permission to require the user to swipe up in the middle 1/3 of the bottom bezel when in landscape mode, which should be used only in certain types of game.
