    Is it just me or does anyone else not see the point of changing this? If I want to delete email, song on a playlist, etc. it has always been a right swipe, now it's left. I hate it.

    Ok. Why did you need to make a new thread about this?

    A swipe to the right now goes 'back' to the previous page. They likely changed it to avoid accidentally triggering that when you just want to delete something. It's not even a big deal to me.

    Makes more sense to go to the left. Swiping to the right was..just awkward.

    In email a right swipe goes to the body of the email.

    Thats something I dont like :[
    If you turn off that gesture does it allow any direction swipe to delete?

    No. You could always swipe either way, left to right, or right to left.

    No it doesn't. It moves back to the previous panel.

    How can you turn off that gesture?

    ----------

    No. While in the inbox, a right swipe enters that messages body.

    Not for me. It's a new system-wide gesture that I imagine will get implemented in many other apps going forward.

    I see what is happening. Anything short of the far left to right swipe is registering as a push and entering the message body. That is not the case for the right to left. I can start at left of center and it still brings up 'delete'.

    Actually you could swipe both ways on ios6. Just get use to it. Its not that difficult. I believe in you.

    Yup, right to left was always there, and I actually used that most of the time not even really paying attention that I might be able to do it the other way (which is good I guess since it's not an option in iOS 7 so far it seems). Dismissing a banner notification on top of the screen was also right to left in iOS 6 and earlier.
