Quick, uniform access to features is something BlackBerry has paid particular attention to with BlackBerry 10, and as such, swiping from the left-hand side, bottom or top of the screen results in a predictable action.
For example, swiping down from the top gives you access quick access to system shortcuts, regardless of whether you're using an app or on the home screen (pictured above).
Similarly, swiping from the left-hand side brings up feature options of any open app, for example, allowing you to select between local, SD card and Dropbox storage within the File Manager app.
And swiping up from the bottom centre of the screen always returns you to the Active Frames screen and displays the shortcuts to the phone dialler, camera and universal search box (visible at the bottom of the screen in the picture above).
