Swipe left and right to change list (while in task list view)

hagglelad says:

I use quite a few different lists and I currently find it a pain to switch lists as it takes 4 steps (Menu, Views, Lists, ).

Would it be possible to add a feature which enables the user to swipe through their lists from left to right? This would make my Android RTM experience 200% better and 400% faster.

Would welcome any other users opinions also.

You can swipe left and right to switch between main screens (Today, Tomorrow, Lists, Nearby, etc.). Hope this helps!

This was my idea on the topic. I'm not sure devs are reading this forum for suggestions, I guess I'll submit it via their bug tracker eventually.

Thanks for your reply, good to know that my suggestion has been acknowledged however you have slightly misunderstood my idea.

You are correct you can swipe thru the following:

Today - Tommorow - This Week - Lists - Tags - Locations

However, if you actually select a specific list from the "Lists" page/view, you CANNOT then swipe left and right to change to a different list.

For example, one might have the following custom lists:

"Work To Do" - "Home To Do" - "Films To Get" - "Music To Get"

When looking at the "Home To Do" list I would like to be able to swipe right to view the "Work To Do" or swipe left to view the "Films To Get" etc.

NOTE ALSO: the current left-to-right swiping 'animation' is wrong, the screen moves from right-to-left. I expect this has probably already been pointed out but thought I'd mention in case it hadn't.

hagglelad, I understood that from your post; I was just pointing out what's currently already supported. :)

I like this idea and think it would be killer to be able to swipe where you want to go quickly.

I think the ultimate would be to define which screens you swipe through and in what order that works best for you. I don't use tags and locations so I would remove them. If it was user defined (and included individual lists as options) then hagglelad could pick those lists to swipe to in the order he/she wants to view them.

Absolutely love fjauretche's idea of defining the lists that you swipe through. That would be so awesome.
