Description (last modified by mario)


  • iPhone 6, iOS 9.0.2
  • ABB for iOS v1.2.0-stage


In v1.2.0 page-back and page-forward gestures were introduced (#3111). In order to perform a page-back or page-forward gesture, the user needs to swipe to the 2/3rd mark of the screen (approx.). This works fine in portrait mode due to the smaller screen width. In landscape mode, however, the user needs to drag the screen unnaturally far, which makes this gesture difficult to perform - especially on a larger screen (iphone 6 plus).

How to reproduce

  1. Open ABB
  2. Visit
  3. Search for "test"
  4. Tilt your phone over to landscape mode
  5. Slowly swipe from the left screen corner to the right to initiate a page-back

Observed behaviour

The gesture is only registered as a page-back as soon as your movement has reached the 2/3rd mark of the screen. See the following screenshot:

Expected behaviour

The gesture is accepted after roughly crossing the 1/3rd mark of the screen.
