    I am left handed when using my Q10 and notice my thumb blocks my view of some peak notifications located on the left hand side of the screen. Is there a way to switch the peak notifications to display on the right side of the screen? Does anyone else see my suggestion as a possible improvement to the UI experience?

    It would take a lot more then moving the peak notifications for a truly left handed experience.. there would have to be a toggle that rearranged the entire OS.. moved the back button to the other side.. changed all the screens so they slide in the opposite direction.. it would be quite an undertaking.

    I'm left handed was well, but I've always used my BlackBerry with my right hand.. likely because I started using them back when there was no other choice.. the track wheel was physically mounted on the right hand side. I suppose I could have switched when the pearl came out.. but I never saw a need.

    Indeed, there would be a lot of work to reverse things for left handed use. I envisioned peak on the right hand side and it appears if they only had a setting for that, then the transition to the "flow" part of peak and flow could stay the same. Just a thought.

    This is true....my ex is left handed and he always used his BlackBerry on the right, when I asked he mentioned the trackwheel.

    Welcome aboard OP!!!!

    Same.
    Right handed but usually use the phone with my left hand. There have been multiple threads/posts about this. In general, unless you have tiny hands, the gestures work for either hand.

    Welcome to CrackBerry. It is interesting that it's set up for right handed people. I use both hands depending on what I'm doing.

    Welcome to CrackBerry! That would take a lot of work I think
    But, weren't the Hub and app tray on the opposite side back when they first started demoing BBX (now BB10)?
