Page Turning

A lot of users are asking us why page turning is so trouble. From the original design, we want to make Collections like a magazine so that we added a page turning animation to make users feel like flipping an album. There is a trick. You can just tap "slightly" at the borders (see the yellow area in the following screenshot), and then the page will be turned.
