Hello all!!

I am developing a new app, its called Hovering Controls. The app imitates the beheaviour of Air Gesture from Galaxy S4 (some options need root like gallery swipe and browser scroll) It also emulates Quick Glance, Air Call accept etc etc..
You can also control your music/video players, start your desired app on a move, switch to previous apps, jump to launchscreen....you can check the features bellow.
I have 2 version of the app, both full versions, one is XDA version wich is totally free (you can download here) and a supportive version published in Google Play (with this version you support future updates and features).
Any feedback and suggestions are well received. I will try to add all features you ask for.
Thank you every body!!



Sharing INFO:
Please do not upload the app in other sites, stores or online storages. Link back to this post or to Google Play.
I prefer not using the app on custom roms, i prefer that people just download it from here or the store so they always can have the latest updates and fixes.
If you make a translated version (i will translate it asap) pm me with a link to download so i can post it here too.

Any questions, petitions suggestions or whatever you want, pm me or contact me via Skype([email protected]) or gmail([email protected])

Thank you everybody!

Hello all!!

I am developing a new app, its, for now, called Hovering Controls, it allows you to open your desired app with hand gesture (1 slide, slide twice and hover) (not real gesture as it uses proximity sensor) it also allow you to play, pause, next,previous your songs/videos even with screen off. Also mute alarm and ring phone with a simple hand wave. There are 2 modes, target mode (1 gesture for one app) and carousel mode where you can set a list app and it goes throught them.
I would like to hear from your opinions and feedback.
Thank you very much all!!

delete the spaces in the url as i still cant post urls.
PD:The icon is just a demo not the final one. It has a widget also to stop/pause the detection.

So it's essentially air gestures like the s4 comes with ?

Not really, you can not control de interface of apps, just open your selected app with hand waves. Extra features are music/video player control, alarm and phone call ringing mute.

I still need to work on the event detector, some phones have slower sensors and if you wave your hand fast nothing is detected...i will need to figure out how to make it "smooth" with all sensors.

About ram, i will need to check that, i will clean the code, it still has debugging code and variables. Good thing is while running, the code only runs when a proximity event happens, so its not all time looping throught the code.

If you find that the app is not working with your fav music/video player, post the name of the app and i will update it. If you find out more features for it, also post them i will try.

Yep, settings not working yet, i will add an option to not show an icon in the notif bar (it is shown because the service is running as foreground so Android do not destroy it for resources, in the next update with the option to not show the icon, if you check it, android may destroy the service for a moment if needed)

I'm using it for the same purpose! Really a nice app and is functioning properly. And few more features in the future would be great! :D

Just one problem I'm facing is even though I select 'Camera' app from the list, the function opens 'Gallery', always. :confused:

It works with package names, sometimes some stock apps, has same package name but different class name, that is what can be happenning there, can you tell me the name of the apps and if they are stock apps, wich rom, android version and phone do you have?
I will need to investigate it a little more to fix this issues.

I'm using Micromax Canvas A116 HD with stock Android 4.2.1. The app which I'm trying to link is stock Camera app.

I'm using Micromax Canvas A116 HD with stock Android 4.2.1. The app which I'm trying to link is stock Camera app.

Lets debug this a little bit...for example, in Hover Hold option, you select camera app, and it opens the gallery? when its opening a message is shown (a toast message) what it says? opening camera or opening gallery?

I explain this a little more:
In my S3 when i choose to open contacts or telephone, it always opens the same app althought they are shown as different apps, both have the same package name, and thats why it opens the same...i will try to fix this beheaviour.

It says 'Opening Camera' but still opens Gallery.

Well...its weird xD

Lets try this, unninstall the app, and install the new apk attached in this message. In Hovering Hold, when you choose the app, it will now show the package name. Check what it says choosing camera and what choosing gallery, packages should be different. let me know how it goes plz.
Thank you very much in advance!

Well yeah, the 4.2+ camera is basically one application, so I can understand why it opens the gallery.
Really nice idea by the way, I will be keeping an eye on this. I set it to open Google Now, and so far it's working well. :)

It's really a great concept, but I'm having a few troubles. First, I can't get hover hold to work at all, not even while testing the sensor. Second, whenever it recognizes a double swipe, it opens the correct app, but then immediately opens the single swipe app as well. Idk if my waving isn't very good or what, but the sensor isn't sensitive enough for this to be useful for me.

Hrumph...some gestures. I flipped off my phone for 30 seconds, and nothing happened but it going into sleep mode. I guess I don't intimidate it.

Seriously, though, this thing is running pretty nicely. I'll have to keep an eye on it to see how battery life is affected, of course. Now people driving next to me are going to think I'm conducting an orchestra or something...

    Hi mate :),I found these issues hope fix in future release:
    -always 'FC' during incoming calls on S2
    - an issue with playing songs on hover hold when I watch youtube video is really annoying (solved by disable Music/video control) hope fix without disable.
    - problem with pausing video when the video is in landscape (sometimes it doesn't work)
    - make it less battery consumption
    --------------------
    New features hope to add
    - add a feature to choose delay time for the speed of sensor response would be great (to increase or reduce the sensor response time)
    - add a feature to take a screenshot with swipe like s3 :p
    -----------------
    Thank you a lot for this app I love it :
    waiting for new updates :D
    9
    new verison 1.3.0 out!!
    8
    I love the last release 1.3.0 :) but just face these issues:
    -pause function is not working when the video is landscape on s2 (stock video player) just working in portrait, I hope this feature works in both portrait and landscape
    -an issue in hovering hold when the video is playing that if I didn't select the video player it will open a song in background
    - unlock feature is not working with my ripple lock on s2 after u make it work without root :(

    suggestion:
    I wonder if it is possible to make this function instead of two slides,the sensor can detect my hand motion if I swipe my hand to right side swipe to right (Next pic) and if I swipe it to left go to left (previous pic), it will be great

    thnx a lot bro :D

    I am using the one swipe to show lock screen in combination with hover hold to lock phone. I've noticed whenever I swipe to show the lock screen and input my pattern, the phone unlocks but then relocks within seconds. Only happens when I've used the swipe to display the lock screen instead of pressing a button. Anyone else experience this? Any fix?

    Yes. If you use swipe once for lockscreen preview, the screen will be turned off in a couple of seconds, even if you unlock the phone. However, this behavior wasn't present in earlier versions. In my opinion, the way it used to be was far more convenient and less annoying.
    Beside that, for some reason swipe twice to unlock is very slow to respond (could be more than 15 seconds), and sometimes it doesn't respond at all. Also, the sensitivity is weird as well. Sometimes it will recognize the movement when I accidentally move my hand over the phone at 30+ cm, but when it's just couple of centimetres above the sensor, the sensitivity seems to be very low. I did sensor test in app, and everything seems okay there. But when it comes to unlocking the phone, the story is a bit different.

    Glad to see I'm not alone. Are you aware of any fix or will we have to wait for the dev to take care of it?

    Interesting, I haven't had any problem like that while using the swipe twice to unlock. Perhaps take a look at your sensor options and adjust the time? Not sure if that will help but worth a shot. As for sensitivity, I haven't had any issues but then again it's pretty subjective for me.

    @DJMaj07 unfortunately, I don't know of any workaround. We'll have to wait for the dev to look into it.

    I've tried everything, but it's still hit and miss for me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    I emailed him earlier about a different issue I was having and he was very quick with a helpful response. I'll email him again and see if he can look into it when he has time.

    Hmm. Might have to do with your phone and its proximity sensor, or maybe your ROM and its deep sleep settings. Hopefully it's the latter so you can fix it!

    Sorry all for being so away...i promised an update for last week and couldnt...i am so bussy with my job practice....almost have no time to sleep xDDDDD but fortunatelly yesterday i started hard on it and improved the quickglance appearance, its much cooler now. I am improving the settings layout adding options to choose what slide do what (will slowly add them step by steps) also adding options for quickglance settings like hour/date format.
    i will release a version this weekend with whatever i get finished and so on for every weekend. so it get a little more active.

    about screen locking after a few secs.. i will test it and try to find whats going on.
