    I'll say I'm a bit annoyed with the "Back Gesture". Wish there was a way to reverse the direction or that it worked in both directions. Swiping toward my palm isn't the most natural thing.

    I thought i'd get used to it by now, but still find myself trying to swipe away from my palm.

    I like it, and it seems to make sense to those of us who read from left to right...

    I'm a lefty, but tend to use my right with my phone (probably left over from having to use my left for the stylus)....so I'm okay.

    Do you have the advanced gestures turned on? With it on, the back gesture is only a half swipe, and a whole swipe switches between active apps.

    Lefty here too, holding the Pre in the right hand, and frequently holding a pen or work phone in the left hand. I've found it easier to move my favorites apps to the right side of the launcher screens for quick thumb access.
