Patrick Rhone:

As it stands right now third-party developers have virtually created a wild west of gestures amongst and throughout various applications. A two finger swipe to the right in one app could do something completely different in another … This creates confusion even with experienced users as we humans are especially prone to habit when it comes to gestures and touch. To us, gestures are linked to specific meanings and expectations. When such meanings change or expectations are challenged on a per app bases, it tends to betray and confuse our intentions at a very human level.
