Description Dimitar Dobrev 2015-10-31 13:55:26 UTC
Unlike their iOS counterparts, these methods take no indication which element should be swiped and are therefore useless.

It's been almost a month, could you please at least comment? Without a way to point out what to swipe you might as well remove these methods.
Comment 2 glenn.wilson 2015-12-07 23:18:57 UTC
The parameter less SwipeLeft() and SwipeRight() are generic actions. 

For more specific operations you can use DragCoordinates (Single fromX, Single fromY, Single toX, Single toY). This can be combined with queries to calculate specific values for coordinates in the given situation, device, etc.

I know I can but it's unreliable. What does it mean that they are "generic actions"? Are they created this way at the OS level? Because if they are not, it can be done as it has been in the iOS version of UITests.

Moved this to Xamarin Test Cloud Ideas & Feature Requests Portal:
and created a matching internal feature request.
