Could you please make the starting zone a vertically split screen or diagonally?
Or how about 4 separate squares?
I hope you understand :)
Love your app!
Your app alone was the reason back then I wanted to get root access on my device :)

Any way to gesture to have Volume Up and Volume Down as seperate actions?

I've bought the app to use with my Android Car Headunit. Gestures for volumes would be so helpful.

Just been messing around with the APK and got the gesture to perform the volume raise function instead of just displaying the volume bar.

@op i've been using your app for some time now.

Mostly it was working fine... but off late i have been flashing different roms so when i restore the app with TB
the app works,, and also the gesture works and i get a notification, but then nothing happens.

E.g. if i make a gesture to start an app like PLAY STORE or SOLID EXPLORER the toast is shown of that app
but the app never starts.

I'm using it on a YUPHORIA (lettuce) running 5.1 android.

Can you help me out ?? Do you need logs ?

thanks
Greg

For volume adjust I had to replace some actions I didn't use to do this like Flash and Screenshot, but I got it working now.

Was just a KeyEvent like you have for the Back option. Be good if the author can implement and maybe put the option of how many steps to adjust by. I set mine to 2 at a time.

Think I read the OP was still thinking of a better way to implement but this will be good for me until then.

Hello, gestures are not working for me. Please tell me what details I can offer so you can try to help me get it working

Is it compatible with miui 7? (I granted all permission)

Thanks in advance

Very cool. How exactly did you achieve this?

I couldn't get it to work properly on my tablet, a lenovo yoga 2 1050F, after changing the device setup the home and center launchpad actions worked, but the app closed constantly, super su also closed when I tried to use it when this app was enable. The back action only showed the onscreen command and the prev and next app actions showed a blank message.

Sorry for off topic but have you hidden your NAVBAR ?? If yes, then how do you get it with GMD please ??

Any way you can add a custom Intent option for a gesture. Tasker has this feature I believe.

I've modded it to make it work with my Intent but it would be great if the option was there originally.

    I have searched google play and coolapk to find an alternative gesture app for my new android 11 phone. No one has GMD's passthrough feature because of their non-root overlay implementation. With passthrough feature, I can use app's native border swipe and GMD's oblique/up/down border swipe at the same time. I usually bind oblique swip to back function.

    Also, I don't need to leave finger from screen to make the next gesture, because the gesture starting point can be anywhere, instead of the overlay.

    I am very happy to hear that GMD is still working on android 11. I will try GMD on my redmi k40 after I can root it.

    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

    REQUIRES ROOT ACCESS
    No system modifications or xposed, just a regular app.

    ★ It does not use overlays and does not make your apps and keyboard unresponsive like other gesture apps.

    Thanks, PhilipTD, for generous donation :highfive:
    As a sigh on gratitude I built you latest development version of Gesture Control with Lollipop support. This is the first time I'm sending someone lollipop update.
    Quite a few features do not work but still it is usable :eek:
    Please let me know if you did not receive it.

    Progress update:
    I'm currently working on Spen Control lollipop support but a lot of internal thing are common. However UI part is separate and while I updated Spen Control to 'material', GC is still holo.
    I will be releasing SPen Control first with refreshed ui and lollipop support but I want to make bigger update for GC and add/rework many things that were discussed here or I just have in mind. Some things are already implemented but need to be merged into master some still need to be done. Main idea is to clean up GC so it is more intuitive to new users but more advanced features still will be available when digging deeper into settings.
    1) One good example would be path and recorded gestures. In new version I want to join them in one dialog. So user can pick from predefined set of path gestures (swipe left, swipe right, double tap, expand, pinch, etc.) or record it but entering custom path string still will be accessible. At the moment it is confusing for new users they would they want to enter path instead of recording (pinch for example).
    2) Another example is launchpad settings. Currently its confusing that you have to select which launchpad you want to configure. In new version settings will be accessible directly from launchpad instead and configure particular launchpad.
    3) Blacklist - each gesture will have option to select apps where it is active/inactive. General blacklist will be simplified where you can select if gestures are enabled/disabled in homescreen, apps, lockscreen and keyboard.
    4) Default gestures - I will remove default gestures tab and pre-create these in User Gestures for new users. Lite version will have limited number of available actions but users still can change gestures for these actions.
    5) Settings, touch consumption, Advanced tabs, Help will be moved to menu. App will be Gestures view.
    6) Touch Consumption - after user multitouch screen several times with 3 or more fingers but do not execute any gesture app will popup a tutorial explaining touch consumption with link to settings. Now quite a few new users are confused why their effort at Fruit Ninja does not give any result.
    7) Reviewing/regrouping/fixing actions - so far I was just throwing in new actions. Some didn't work on particular android versions, others didn't work on some devices. I haven't decided how it will be done but I want to clean it up. I want to add plugins support too (downloadable from play store) so some really niche things or some bigger complex thing could be moved there.
    8) Backup/Import/Export - long time promised, its time to add it.

    While such things don't add much for experienced users it will improve overall 'quality' of the app.

    Why cant I just release an old version with lollipop support? I don't have such version. I added lollipop support to half broken/work in progress version and I intend to move forward instead of backporting it. Its not just SeLinux/root issues that needed to be fixed. Some internal Api changed, recent apps work differently, etc, etc. It will be released when ready. Family > full time job > Android (4-20 hours per week).

    Thanks hasenbein1966, for donation :highfive:

    Update:
    Currently Launchpad and Blacklist are completely broken. UI is mix of material and holo. There are still some issues with recent apps. I will create alpha version G+ channel (without support) for lollipop version when I have more stable build.
