Facebook Paper's gestural hell - Thoughts

Fascinating article and a great suggestion to make Paper better for wait-in-line-consumption-mode.

However, a few counter points I can think of -

  • Most people use the phone in 2 hands (not the t(w)eens, but most older people and they form a good chunk of iOS and facebook users)
  • Facebook's paper is designed for a sit back experience.
  • A large set of people I know who are right handed, use the iPhone left handed when using in one hand.

This is not to debunk any of the claims made here as I am no UX or gesture expert.
