Easier to reach 'back' button/action to thread list on iOS?

Standard "tried searching" but no luck, so my apologies if this has already been covered.

Is there a swipe/action that I'm not aware of on iOS that gets you back from a single thread to the list of threads that's easier to reach than the "<" at the top left of the screen? Out of muscle memory/habit I keep swiping from the edge of the screen thinking this will take me 'back', as it does in many other iOS apps.

This makes single-handed use quite difficult, often requiring reachability to pull down the top of the screen. If it doesn't exist, this is my vote for most desired feature in the next version

Then how would you access the left menu bar?

You would prefer to click the Bimmerpost icon to open the menu and swipe to close a thread?

This is possible to implement...

Yes - I'm going to the menu far less frequently than closing threads, so I'd be willing to use the tougher-to-reach action (Bimmerpost icon) to get to the menu. I can imagine there are some users that use the menu more often than I do and would perhaps find this inconvenient. I'd like to see other's feedback to see if I'm an outlier before being the one responsible for a worse UX for everyone else.

Good idea, lets leave this thread open and see what the peanut gallery has to say, otherwise we can do this...

Don't know how I missed it in the 4.5.10 release but major thanks for making this happen! Swipe right setting is just what I needed!
