Hello friends!

I developed an App called Fingerprint Scanner Actions, because I never understood why I could use my fingerprint scanner only for unlocking my device or other security reasons.
I mean, this is an additional button... it should be used like one.

Fingerprint Scanner Tools is an Android App that makes it possible to execute certain actions when you touch your fingerprint scanner and your device is unlocked.
This App is available from Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)


Famous actions that can be executed:

  • Open app-shortcut
  • Execute a Tasker task
  • Toggle the quick settings/notification panel
  • Launch the default camera app
  • Start the flashlight
  • Launch a certain app
  • Turn off the screen (3 different methods)
  • Take a screenshot

Swipe actions:
  • Same as above

Learn how to create custom fingerprint actions with tasker - you will be able to do ANYTHING possible in our big and wide android world.
My friend Mat from NotEnoughTech created an awesome tutorial how to do that. Have fun!

Q&A:

Q: Why is my notification bar expanding so slow?
A: This is a bug in Android 6.0. Please try this workaround:
  1. Enable developer options
  2. In Developer Options go to "Animator duration scale" and set it to 0.2x (you can set it also to 0, then it is going down super fast)
  3. Lock and unlock your device for it to take effect
Q: Why am I unable to unlock my device with my fingerprint after locking it with the action "Screen off" and "DeviceAdmin"?
A: Please use another screen off method, you can choose it in the app. Android prevents us to unlock the device with the fingerprint when it has been locked with the so called DevicePolicyManager. They said that they don't want this feature to be misused.

(Maybe takes a while until it's online, Google takes some hours for their verifying procedure)

I'm running 6.0.1 with a fingerprint sensor. Play store says device not compatible. Any way you can upload the app here?

If you are able to add some special features it would be awesome. On my Honor 5x there is this feature with stock Rom, as I am running CM 13 now, I really miss it:

Show notification panel - Slide down on the fingerprint sensor to display the notification panel, double-touch to clear the panel, and slide up to close the panel.

Is this somehow doable?

Hi,

showing the notification panel is already added (but not online yet).
I'm searching very hard for a solution to receive the swipe gestures of the sensor but until now I didn't find one.
If anyone can help... please contact me.

Is there a way for it to be used to take a picture? Great for selfies on the LG V20.
