3-finger swipe

iOS & iPadOS
Is it just my fat fingers, or does anyone else have trouble getting 3-finger swipes left and right to work on the iPhone 4S? Any tips for making it easier?

,i have trouble with the four finger gestures. The fpractice area under settings is very helpful in discovering what gesture the iphone thinks you are making. I've also found practicing the gesture on the palm of my other hand helps me identify which fingers are hitting first and which are missing the mark. I noticed that it's not necessary to hold the fingers in any particular orientation. Any 3 or 4 finger swipe aimed left or right will do. My parents keep touching the screen with the fingers of the hand holding the phone which of course totally messes up the gesture they are trying to make. LOL
