Lightbulb Gesture for Zooming In

Hello all, I hope you are doing well

I use the stylus to do page swipes (and pretty much everything else) and I find that it cuts the flow when you have to press a hardware button.

I was thinking today how it would be so much cooler and simpler to have a swipe gesture to "zoom in" on documents instead of having to press the "Zoom button". Like.. I don't know, maybe doing a circular swipe or a square one, the gesture itself is not particularly important rather the ability to do it.

What do you guys think? Is it something worth thinking and emailing Sony about? Would any of you second this suggestion? (I ask because I am not living in the States so I can't fill the Contact form to suggest this myself)

good point. i agree...it does somewhat break the flow.
gesturing would be a cool feature.

Wouldn't you need multi touch for that?? I'm pretty sure that our 700s are not multi touch compatible

I wouldn't know about that but I'm sure if there were any impossibility regarding a circular gesture or something like that it could be fixed regardless the touchscreen capabilities. For example, a diagonal swipe equals zoom or one could go as further as to have "diagonal left swipe" for "zoom in" and "diagonal right swipe" for "zoom out"

Where there's a will there's a way... :P
