You could also do swipe gestures from android phones that are rooted and have Xposed module swipe back. Can also use gmd gestures. The gestures can be set up from any edge. On my note edge I had my swipe gestures mostly run from the right edge. For example, if I swiped to the left it would kill a job. The animation would look like the app was sliding off the screen kind of like what the N9 did. If you just motioned a little (kind of a partial swipe) you could peak behind the app to the home screen to check something there. Was also set up so that if I swipe down on the right edge it would take me to the last app I used. If I swiped up on the right edge it would bring be back to where I was.

Does it matter who was first? Well if you found an alien war machine on a crusade through the universe I might raise an eyebrow. But swip down to close an application?

Only for patents! Actually swipe user interface was invented by aliens on a distant planet eons ago. Same thing with discovery/invention of general relativity theory and so forth...

Don't forget the use of stone tools. I have also read Space Odyssey. (I tried to watch it too but it was too boring. The book was much better.)
