I tried with a multitouch test software and I get 10 points, so it should works....
In fact, I tried on my Lenovo K920 and it doesn't work.... I would like to use it on my pixel c but I would like to be sure it will be working before rooting it (and so lose Ota updates...)

Is there a way to "hide status bar" but still use the "open notification panel" gesture to open the notification panel? I've tried using "expanded desktop" but the gesture doesn't work in that mode.

I'm thinking something along the lines of how Nova Launcher does it.

So I got a new phone the Huawei P9. It uses Android Marshmellow 6.0

Gesture Control works fine. But the service does not seem to stick around. When I had the phone locked for a while and unlock it I first have to open up the Gesture Control App or the gestures won't be recognized. I have the notification set to default priority.

Any ideas on how to make the service stick so the gestures are always available? Make it a system app?

[e] making it a system app kinda helped but not really, after like 5min in standby the service is completely gone...

The same in my phone - Note 4 SM-910F - works perfect but after 10-15 min the service is stopped. Made an app system but didn't help.
Is there a workaround?

Not working on OPT with CM13

Hi,

I'm using a OnePlus Two with Cyanogenmod 13 (Android 6.0.1).
CM-Build: 13.0-20160709-NIGHTLY-oneplus2 (I tried the app with few different versions)
Touchpoints: 12 (tried it with help of my girlfriend)
Status: rootet

I tried to re-root, re-install the app but nothing helped. The app seems to not recognize the touch Events. The aquiring of root access works fine. I tried it few times but then I got another app because my hardware buttons not working anymore and I needed to do anything.
Actually I'm using "All-In-One Gestures" and that works but... sometimes a gesture hangs up and is trigged since I use the gesture again so I would really use GMD if I could get it to work. I've heard many good feedback from friends about your app.

So, If you got any idea why it's not working or what I could do to get it to work, that would be great! If you need some (debugging-?) information just tell me what you need and I will post it here.

kind regards and thanks in advance

Yes I just found workaround. You have to enable GMD service in the smart Manager so that the app is running in background after Screen off.

Can you elaborate this further? I can't seem to avoid android killing the service of GWD and therefore having to manually reopen it.

i have an app on my samsung note 3 (marshmallow rom/mod) called smartmanager that allows me to set the apps that stay alive in background after the screen goes black.
i just enabled it for gmd and now its working just fine.

I also have Smart Manager but can't find an option to add an app to stay alive in the backgrounds, could you please add a screenshot or a more detailed walkthrough? thanks!

I think this app modifies the system. You are probably using the systemless root. Use the modified boot.img and try again if it works.

It does not modify system partition. All data/modifications are in app folder.
Android N is not supported yet. I will fix it after I catch 'em all

Jokes aside, Android N broke my interprocess communication code and I'm waiting for the final release to make sure the fix works.

Is there an option to create a gesture to rotate the screen ? I'm not talking about toggling auto-rotate, I need a gesture to make the screen force rotate in portrait/landscape, as my device's rotation sensor isn't working.
This would be really helpful.

I think there's an app "Rotation" or something like that. You can install it then create a gesture to initiate the appropriate app activity via an activity shortcut?

Feature Request:

This -- and the auto hide soft keys app -- are brilliant. I'm coming from webOS, and I was wondering if you could add a feature. You can already start a gesture in the bottom half of the screen, and I'm using this to have a single-finger swipe back gesture (from right to left), like on webOS. But using the entire bottom half of the screen for this action interferes with swiping cards off the screen, etc..

Would it be possible to add a starting zone that was only the bottom 25% of the screen? Kind of like this (pardon the ASCII art):

---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
-------<----------------o------- <<< active zone for gesture
---------------------------------
---------------------------------

Thanks for all of your work on the apps!

    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.

    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:

    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.
