Turn off the Flashlight, Mute and "Do not disturb" from Lockscreen

Hello,

I`m new at this Forum an this is may first Feature request here.

It`s about the functions you can read in the Headline to turn them off directly from your lock-screen. Because this are the only thinks you can use without entering your Security code.

For example the Flashlight:

  1. swipe down the top-Menu to turn it on.

Left Picture Off - right Picture On

  1. swipe down the top-menu to turn it off.

This way is too long for quickly deactivate the Flashlight I think. I created the picture below of my idea to turn it off from the Lock-Screen

The idea is to swipe up the button to turn the Flashlight off and if you have done it the button will disappear automatically.

By this way you would save one swipe. Fine!

This was one of my ideas I had. An other thing is it`s easier to reach the button with one hand.

Let’s see if the idea finds its way into sailfish.

Why not just display a simple button for tapping instead of swiping, while the flashlight is on?

For unmuting your device, you can also use the hardware volume buttons. So there is no need for an extra button in this case IMHO.

What should be improved however is the ability to access the top menu by swiping down from anywhere inside the lock screen, like it is already possible on the home screen.

One can already add apps in the lock screen pulley menu in Settings->Lockscreen, but what is missing is a suitable torch app. At least none in Store work in X10.

But running apps this way require unlocking the lockscreen, i.e. security key or fingerprint. At least, apps that open a window. Not handy.
