I have a situation where I don't really know if there is a possibility that the user experience can get sloppy. Its specifically for an iPhone app if it matters.
Basically, I have two views, a list view and a detail view. When you click the list view, it opens the detail view. To go back to the list view user just swipes left to right. I think it would be intuitive (also adding a tutorial/tips for first users and show the gestures).
I also want to have an image gallery as a carousel, and to change a picture, a user needs to swipe left or right. Can using the same gesture on two elements—navigation and carousel—make a user suffer when interacting with the interface? If yes, how can I approach this?
