Reachability Cursor



[XDA Spotlight review]

What is it for:

Use a computer-mouse-like cursor/pointer to control big smartphones like the Note series effortlessly with one hand. The perfect app for power users that make extensive use of swipe gestures for navigation, glide typing keyboards etc. Check out the Imgur album for short videos clips!

How-to:

Swipe over a screen edge to start Reachability Cursor. If you hold your phone with your right hand, use the right screen edge. Drag the tracker to move the cursor and tap it to click. The cursor disappears automatically when you don’t need it anymore.

What is the monetization model:

Freemium. You can use the core app for free without any ads and purchase the PRO version when you need the advanced features.


Google Play Store link




Roadmap (sorted by priority):
  • minor fixes (the app is actually pretty stable for the first beta release)
  • more Swipe Pad options (height, size etc.)
  • better in-app descriptions and tutorials
  • create demo projects for Google and OEM for Android bug reports that affect this app
  • a better tracker with a new design and animations
  • detailed tutorial for the privileged mode
  • FAQ section

Changelog

nice, a fresh concept. looking forward to links to test.

Edit : Downloaded and tested from play store. Working fine but like many apps its accessibility feature too has tab selection page bug (tab selection page changes from minimal to text only mode in chrome). Apart from this working fine on Mi A1 (RR 8.1). Thanks for this app, now waiting patiently for pro features.

Android 7.0 introduced the necessary API to perform touch gestures.

I think this is a Chrome feature and not a bug . It looks like Chrome enables this "feature" when it detects at least one active Accessibility Service. I found a Chrome flag for this but it's disabled by default and doesn't change anything .
BTW: You probably already know this but you can reveal the old overview by swiping down the omni-box/url-box.

Android 7.0 introduced the necessary API to perform touch gestures.

Can you give a hint how did you inject touch event onto other apps without system privileges?
Is it accessibility API?

Does this version include the fix for incompatibilities with triple tap magnification, or will that be in a future release?
