The Verge, thank you for doing sliding panels better than anyone!

I just want to thank The Verge for doing sliding panels better than anyone in their Android app! I love that you can actually slide to the right to peek at the panel. In other apps I've used with similar panels (Facebook, Google+), you are only allowed to slide when the left panel is already exposed, requiring you to tap the top left button to see the panel. Requiring two completely different touch mechanisms to interact with the panel just seems like bad design.

Thanks again, the app rocks!
