The Swipe-to-refresh is way too sensitive

  • When I swipe my finger down and then up in an attempt to hide the "refresh indicator", thus preventing the refresh, I find myself unable to swipe it all the way up due to the fact that it's much easier to swipe it down than to swipe it up again.

    This GIF shows me dragging my finger all the way down across the screen and back up a few times which makes the indicator humorously go outside the screen and disappear, only to come back up at the speed of light (not literally) when I remove my finger from the screen.

  • Hello @solid-spitz!

    Thanks for your report. That's an interesting behavior... And an annoying one, for sure. We've recently revamped our pull-to-refresh logic, so this should already be fixed in our internal builds. We're planning one or two releases this month and the fix for this will be a part of one of them.
