Control device with mutitouch and multitask gestures similar to iPad or iPhone X. Works in all applications. Hide status bar, hide navigation bar and enjoy full screen in all apps and games.

"For those who tend to get tired of Android's status bar, or just want more intuitive gesture-based controls on their tablet, this app is definitely worth a shot." - Android Police

Android 4.0 (ICS) - 8.1 (Oreo) supported
REQUIRES ROOT ACCESS
No system modifications or xposed, just a regular app.



★ This is free version - no ads
★ Gestures work anywhere on screen and all time - no triggers required
★ Multitask - start any application, shortcut or custom action without leaving current application
★ Swipe left or right to switch between running applications
★ Home and Back gestures that work in all apps anywhere on screen
★ Access LaunchPad from any app - dialog with recent apps, your applications, shortcuts and custom actions
★ Hide status bar and Navigation Bar - enjoy full screen in all apps and games
★ Custom gestures - create your own gestures to start any application, shortcut or custom action, unlimited possibilities, hundreds of possible gestures.
★ Assign different actions per app or even lock screen.
★ Browser actions - back, forward, refresh new tab, close tab, incognito tab, next/previous tab, bookmarks, find in page, search, history, jump to page start/end
★ It does not use overlays and does not make your apps and keyboard unresponsive like other gesture apps.

will test this when i get home

but thinking something like this would be helpful when playing videos full screen - right and left for fast foreward/rewind, up/down for volume up and down, diagonal for brightness

another thought is for first person shooter games

and finally a gesture to toggle it on and standby

Home:
down - right

Show/Hide status bar:
up - right

Root access is needed. Tested on Honecomb. ICS not tested (hide bar definitely working only on Honycomb at the moment)

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

You can download it here:

Doesn't seem to do anything, other than displaying the command onscreen (eg. back and home). I'm running CM9.

I'm considering multitouch. When I tried it, it felt a bit awkward for me, but I might add an option.

Thanks. I developed on 7.7 stock and tested on friends 10.1 stock, but I hope to get my hands on 10.1 for longer time (maybe next week) and try different firmwares.
CM9 not available for 7.7 unfortunately. But good to know that gestures are registered on ICS, so I think I can make it fully functional.

Same issue for me with AOKP, gesture text shows up but nothing happens.. I think there is great potential with this, your work is much appreciated!

Really nice. But like the other, it shows the gesture, but nothing happens (CM9)

Would be awesome, like an iPad, 4 fingers swipe to change between recent apps

Changed gestures to multitouch, fixed bug that might prevent actions from execution (after gesture is detected and message shown).
However ICS still not supported (don't have device yet).
