Patch: PullDown Covers

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

My updated version of the Pulldown-Covers patch for 3.x



  • added a pulley menu (together with a needed SilicaFlickable and Rectange for cropping)
  • original cover action buttons set to disabled
  • cover action icons' opacity changed to 0.5 (to show that the buttons are inactive)


  • once you have more than 9 apps open, it may interfere with scrolling. I may add means to prevent this in the future, but for now, it is just up to you how many apps you have open
  • it is now bit harder to open the menu, as you cannot scroll on the app covers - either scroll in between covers, or swipe from the bottom of the screen to access the menu
  • seems to conflict with the top menu when the finger is not direct on the app cover


  • think about reversing the order of the items in pulley menu
  • settings page?

To combine with no home carousel is definitely a must, to have it even greater would have it twak the top menu to only deploy with a top edge swipe only.

Any chance of updating this to work with Torronsuo update?

One more reason to combine it with no-caroussel imho :-)

For Sailfish 3.0 with this patch, I feel very hard using this patch, as I always get the top menu when I pull down on the app covers but seldom get the pulley menu on the covers. Any idea about this?

I find if you pull down too quickly you get the top menu instead. Pausing your finger on the cover until it hi-lights, then a smooth, easy, not too fast pull down gets it right every time. Takes a little practice.

It's because it's conflicts with the top menu. It's listed in the warnings.

Nice touch. Yeah, needs a settings page. Probably include the ability to remove/fade out the default icons completely? Would left and right pully actions for changing locations in the Meecast cover be possible?

Yea ,finally that's ''no home carousel'' patch that is conflicting. But I prefer to keep no home carousel more than pull down cover. It would be great however if both could coexist.

Please post a screenshot of the patchmanager somewhere. Which SailfishOS version do you use?

Unapply all other patches and apply this one again, easy to troubleshoot, no?

A nice idea! Do you see a chance to combine it with 'no home carousel' patch ? a horizontal version .
