The latest update is GROSS. With having the navigation bar set to Swipe Gestures, they moved the back button to the right-half of the screen. And to display all open apps, I have to swipe up and hold instead of just swiping up. The previous swipe gestures were PERFECT and they have just butchered it. No one asked for a change.

I was/am really frustrated by the change, but fortunate in that I've been using Goodlock for some of its QOL features for many devices anyway and happened to have it installed already.

Thank you very much for taking the time to help me resolve this silly, consumer unfriendly, change.

I'm in the US and I am region locked to using the Good Lock app. PLUS, I should not have to download a separate app to work my phone. It is RIDICULOUS that Samsung would do this. I even contacted support and the only thing they told me to do was to complain here...

They could have just added the new (apparently to "simplify the user experience") gestures as a third option.

Stupidest change ever; beeing forced to use 3rd party app to keep using the navigation style users used for years..

Why change them the way they did?! Add an extra feature, don't take away perfectly functional features at the same time.

Good to know I'm not alone in my aggravation with this change. I have NO interest in downloading ANOTHER app in order to fix this terrible update. Guess I'll have to switch back to the button setup rather than being able to use the swipe gestures as previously designed.
