Bug Description

I've only just discovered the long swipe from the left to get to the apps scope. I feel like an idiot but it turns out it's quite hard to find out about or discover accidentally.

Even the Unity8 tutorial fails to show this feature to the user. You can (in fact, must) get through the tutorial using only a short swipe from the left to show the launcher. The long swipe remains a somewhat hidden feature.

--- UX Comment ---

We've included one more instructional overlay in the Edge education tutorial that teaches the user how to long swipe from the left to access the Today Scope. This is currently being implemented in silo 33. See spec for further details: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pZ-Ro--2eaRzjZKNRoYAeDvQHMkCuyvVuPFWFQfPW4s/edit#heading=h.c3ph00mwjcsp

I think the tutorial also fails to educate the user about indicators (swipe down from the top). People seem to be more familiar with this gesture from other platforms (or demo videos?) so it's less of an issue. But still missing from the edge education.

We are redesigning the Edge Education and this bug will be covered by the new design.
