  • It's not best practice to disable side swipe. Customer probably feel bad without the capability of side swipe. can you clarify your scenario in details?

  • what about games that involve swiping for example fruit ninja when reaching later stages and frantic swiping to slice the many

    fruit the swipes from side of screen often occur which then interrupt and pause the game.

    Another example of a non gaming App, take a Virtual Piano and swipe the keyboard  the side swipe menu pops up and you cant swipe the keyboard

    you have to position your finger on last key so as to avoid bringing on side swipe feature.
