Here is a sentence from a task management app:

The app allows you to add tasks in several ways and in one of them you can pull down on a list to put a task to the top.

I am not sure about the meaning of the phrase pull down on here.

Any suggestions?

I'm interpreting this question as pertaining to the preposition 'on,' which doesn't appear strictly necessary.

In this case, I imagine "pull down" is used as a fixed expression, and "on" directs the destination of the action - this makes sense to me, if the the language used is in the context of a touch user interface, but I could be wrong.

For another (perhaps better) explanation, here's a question regarding the same set of words from two years ago: what does ''pull down on'' mean?
