    After using Riposte, I find myself swiping left-to-right in many other apps to go back to the previous screen.

      @shawnblanc Same here! Especially anything fullscreeny, like the NYT app.

          @mrgan Swipe left is the new pull to refresh. @shawnblanc

            @shawnblanc Same here! Frustrating when it not works (or the other way around) in other apps.

                @shawnblanc I do it all the time in Reeder and Digg too. Should be system default.

                  @shawnblanc I've had the exact same problem. Just feels natural.

                      @mrgan We take push/pop transitions at face value: swiping to go back is like pulling yourself back to where you were before. If I can’t picture an app as a set of cards laid out in a grid on a table, I can’t understand it. @shawnblanc

                        @mrgan @shawnblanc Oddly enough, the swipe-for-navigation-bar feature was the one aspect of Riposte that constantly irritated me. I understand why people like it, but it felt like unnecessary friction to me.

                          @jaredsinclair Yup. Which is why the wonky gestures infuriate: they're breaking the implicit contract we have with software metaphors. Don't make me swipe up to change options and such nonsense.

                            @jaredsinclair @shawnblanc @mrgan If iOS 7 has no other features besides "the UI now acts like Riposte everywhere," it'll be a worthy upgrade.

                                @shawnblanc reeder supports swipe to return from the article view, but nowhere else. Always annoys me that I can swipe but then have to hunt for the back button.

                                  @mkelly glad that's not just me!

                                    @shawnblanc Ditto. I wish there was a twitter app that worked like @riposte

                                      @shawnblanc yes. Happens to me ALL the time now. Very frustrating when it doesn’t work in other apps!

                                        @shawnblanc That’s exactly what happened to me too!

                                          @shawnblanc It is the way IE10 Metro and W8/W-RT work too. I am so very used to that gesture now.

                                              @shawnblanc I wish more apps supporting the swiping instead of using too-small back buttons

                                                @shawnblanc that’s exactly what I like, and hope for more apps to catch on.

                                                  @shawnblanc I noticed last night at the Apple Store, that gesture is how it works on the new iPod nano.
