Awesome! Tried it on stock ROM on the OnePlus 3 (based on 6.0.1) and it works great. I was afraid I couldn't update to Nougat when OnePlus releases the update later this year since this App is essential to me by now.

Yay! I'm usually cheap and wouldn't use mobile data to download anything, but I just had to update the GMD on the road lol.

Some tester feedback:

Running 7.0 (NBD90X) on N6P, rooted 2.78SR3, EX Kernel, stock otherwise. Everything functions nicely, except that it breaks root whenever I go into device setup and change anything.

For example, the first time I discovered this issue was when I toggled "override touch device" because of "no supported multitouch device detected" message. The toast message "setup device..." came up, followed by "no supported multitouch device detected" message, and none of gesture would work. So I went into SuperSU where it shows as no root detected. A reboot fixed it.

Then, I tried to adjust border size and hit apply, "setup device..." came up, the root is gone again. Another reboot fixed this issue.

To replicate this issue, I intentionally changed settings under device setup several times, and the root was broken every time.

This does not affect my daily use, though, because I do not frequently change things under device settings, but just in case it is something to be fixed down the road.

Is there any way to get it to work with phh superuser? I've been avoiding chainfires since that questionable company bought it. Currently it just constantly prompts for superuser access before every second, so the 3 second timer to grant access never completes

Edit: seems if I wait it out for like 30 seconds of prompts, GMD will eventually stop sending requests and then if I approve all 20ish prompts it will work

This is the best thing that happened in 2016. Thank you Dev. Working smooth on Nexus 6p 7.1.1 DP. All my custom gestures are back in action. Now I can make use of the giant screen real estate. Long live this App and the Dev. God bless you!

Thanks for update...... but still I have issues with the app on mate 8... as it closes nearly every 3 minutes and I have to reopen it time after time.... Although I gave the app all permissions and even I turned it to be a System App.... Any suggestions?
Note: I faced the same issue before updating.... I have the paid version.

Partially, I solved this issue by combining GMD Gestures with another app (Pie Control) and I added most of the actions of GMD to The "pie control" like kill foreground app ,.....etc.....That's a temporary solution till we get one from the developer.

    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

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

    ★ 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

    ★ 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.

    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.
