Please refer to the main thread in Android apps and Games: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1535740

I'm developing application that allows you to control tablet with multitouch gestures. Root access is needed. Currently it allows to execute following gestures:

Back:
Swipe 2 fingers from top downward

Home:
pinch 3-4 fingers

Show/Hide status bar:
Swipe 2 fingers from bottom upward

Please try it out and let me know what you think. What other features or actions would be helpful?

You can download it here:
Gesture Control Lite



USB Debugging must be enabled

Change log:

1.2.1
- Added check for USB Debugging

1.2.0
- Added option to switch multitouch/singletouch gestures
- Fixed bug: ROOT permission sometimes was not aquired

There are a lot of requests for status bar hiding widgets or apps. So you just start the application when you need to hide status bar (for example before browsing or gaming). You don't lock your device in the middle of gaming.

In my opinion it is still better than all other bar hiding apps (and I'm talking about free version of my app). You have to click something in all of them (and here you click - start app). Just in my app you have the opportunity to control your tablet while bar is hidden.

But if you think this version is useless, I value your opinion.

Working fine here. Nice app, doesn't lag either.

Would love to see more gestures/controls and an option to customize them. Please keep up the good work and don't stop working on it

I'm developing on 7.7 myself, so it is tested well on it.
You don't get any error messages, notifications on gestures nothing? Does the last button in settings screen (Status bar toggle) works (hides/unhides) status bar?

I'm now using this and works brilliant. Finding the swipe gestures to suit me. Hiding and unhiding status bar no lag. Keep up the good work. Bought full version.
