If you have followed the publicity about the new iPhone, you have probably seen the Reachability feature and thought, "that would be neat on my 5.5inch super-mobile".

If you have never heard about "Reachability", this is what it's about:

With new features like Reachability you can interact with the larger screen in different ways, too. Simply double touch the Home button and the entire screen shifts down closer to your thumb.

Well here is some good news for you: it isn't that hard.

WHAT YOU NEED:
  • Rooted phone
  • Xposed framework and the One-Hand Mode module (Premium is best, to get it to work properly)
  • Tasker or a launcher that allows you to use gestures.
PROCEDURE:
  1. Install xposed, if you haven't already, and the OHM module (follow their instructions)
  2. Activate the module
  3. Restart

Now to activate the functionality:

I have set the OHM module to move the the screen 700 pixels from the top.


Then I used Tasker to make a profile where an up-down shake will activate the One-Hand Toggle app.



If you use a launcher which allows for gestures you can also use these to activate the Toggle App.

This is what it looks like when it works:


SHAKE and voila:




(screen shots will be added later. Details will be added if asked for)

Adding a quick summary regarding the functionality of which the thread is about isn't too much to ask. No need to be like that about it...

You're right, it isn't too much to ask, but the OP hasn't done that so a better usage of your time probably would have been just to look it up. I wasn't 'being like that' anyway, it was said in jest.

YouTube 'ios8 reachability' and stop wasting OP's time. We all know what it is by looking it up ourselves. A simple video will explain to you in sec.
