Agents, the new Ingress Prime scanner brought a completely redesigned interface for portal, map and inventory interactions. A reddit user named lefthandedchurro brought attention to a new set of hidden swipe shortcuts that are sprinkled all across the Ingress Prime UI.

The following graphic by Orange Heart illustrates how the swipe shortcuts work:
