iPad Multitasking Gestures interfering with some accessibility gestures

iOS and iPadOS
I am a fairly new iPad user compared to my iPhone, so bear with me. I've turned the multitasking gestures on in Settings, and I like the way you can switch between apps with just a four-finger horizontal swipe and not have to go into the app switcher.
However, I am having a problem with the conflicting "move to top/bottom" gesture. So how are you guys resolving this? Do you just not use one set of gestures? I was content to forego my easy top/bottom access in favor of switching apps... until I started using MBraille. then every time I put four fingers on the screen to type Braille, the app switcher would open! Grrr. Are app developers able to override the multitasking parameters?
Hope we can figure this out. If enough people see this issue and it isn't just me, I might contact Apple and see if any flexibility can be added for iOS 7 or 8. or it may be that I'm the only one who likes this feature. :)
