Having spent a lot of time as a hunter/chaser, I decided to make things easier for myself while testing the app. The Spots & Alerts screens have data about the Activator, I wanted to log data about the Activator that I had communicated with. I decided to make use of this data by capturing the information to log contacts with Activators and/or re-spot them. That's when I discovered swiping. Basically, if you've made contact with an Activator on the Spots or Alerts list, you swipe the row to the right and press the Log/Spot button that appears.
Swipes work on the following rules:
The Spot is related to a local Amateur, ie VK/ZL and other prefixes such as VI, AX and ZM.
The Spot hasn't already been logged
You can still swipe a Spot that has only been re-spotted, once it has been logged, it becomes unavailable.
If the swipe shows Invalid, it is because the Activator is not a local ham or you have already logged this row.
The Alert has today's date, you can't swipe Alerts in the future. The time is not used when working out what can be swiped.
The Alert hasn't been logged yet.
