Swipe as only way to dismiss notifications

There are few things with how notifications work Android (which is what I use) that I think could work better.

  1. I often try to expand a notification to read it’s content but accidentally click it. Most of my notifications are not actionable and leads me to the app loosing the information I was trying to read

  2. If collapsed HA notifications are clicked they are all cleared

  3. It’s too complicated to see notification history in the app

My suggestion:

  1. Require the user to either swipe the notification to remove it or to click one of the buttons defined in the actionable notification
  2. Make the notification history easily accessible and display it in the same manner or similar as how it’s presented in notifications (and not like a log file), including snapshots from cameras, links etc
