Labus offers the following notes on his approach:
● As mentioned before, flicking up from the bottom of the edge allows the multitasking app views to be tied directly to the gesture, which allows for direct manipulation and avoids having to wait for a passive animation to complete before interacting with them.
● The obvious potential drawback to this combined approach is that there is less room available for Control Center- I personally find that I use a couple features of Control Center, but almost never touch at least half of them (calculator, clock, airplane mode, bluetooth). I can't be sure, but I suspect this is true for a large amount of other users as well, so my solution is to have 5 button 'slots' that can be customized with the 5 most used shortcut functions for that particular user.
● The brightness slider is also omitted for lack of space, however I think it could perhaps replace the volume slider, as I personally control my phone's volume with the hard keys 100% of the time.
Labus has provided the code as an Xcode project for anyone who wants to try this themselves. You can get the project here. More details on the concept can be found in his Dribbble post here.
