Everyone has been exposed to the UX metaphor of swiping to the left of right in a list of items. The most common being swiping to delete an item from the list.
If you swipe it all the way across then you delete the record completely without showing that red side square. I guess it acts as a visual confirmation.
What if we had swipe left/right and swipe across left/right. 4 Different gestures and they would only work on portals. And the portal row could be defined to show one or more boxes ... maybe a button bar.
We get to style them and choose what scripts we want them to execute.
And maybe it could also work on the desktop with pro.
