Just got lollipop and mostly loving the lockscreen notification just like my Nexus 5... however, is there anyway to disable "Swipe to unlock" when I tap a notification so that it goes straight into the app? It seems redundant. I believe my Nexus 5 did not require the swipe step when I tap a notification. This is with the swipe lock (no passcode).
