I've been playing around to see a pattern and it's when I'm in single screen mode in landscape the quick cursor zone moves to the left and the bubble where my finger is at doesn't show
Thanks, I will try to replicate the issue and try to fix it. I will keep you updated here on the thread when I find something.
Can you please try to change Quick Cursor -> Settings -> Debug -> Aspect ratio scale mode -> "Proportional" instead of "Smart" ? And see if the issue reproduce? Thanks

Do you think it's possible to have actions with two fingers?
for example I'm moving the cursor with one finger if I place the other finger currently opens the quick actions menu, if had the ability to scroll with two fingers up and down in the app that the cursor is at would be great and if I did a quick tap with the second finger it would trigger a click
this actions would kinda mimic a touchpad
I would love to implement something like that, but this is a limitation of Android. There can't be two simultaneous input touches from different sources (real touch on the device screen and simulated touch by accessibility service), so I can't simulate a touch on the screen if there is another real touch in progress. This can't be done in Android 7 - 12, I don't now in the next versions, but right now it's limited.

Hi!
I'm having a problem where this app doesn't stay in memory. I've turned off battery optimization for this app, but it gets "killed" after like 4h of inactivity.
I'm running it on my S21 Ultra with android 12.
I guess it's Samsung's horrible battery optimization? Or can this be fixed? :D

Unfortunately, I saw a spike on Samsung crashes on Android 12.

It happens only on Samsung devices, and only on Android 12.
I don't own any Samsung device, so I tried to replicate the issue on the Samsung official remote test lab for 30 minutes but couldn't make the app crash.
From what I understand from user feedback, it happens after some hours/days.
I suspect this is 100% a Samsung issue. Like many other issues found on manufacturers, like the Google Pixel 6 Pro freeze when battery drops or OnePlus that kills all accessibility services on expanded screenshots.

I would recommend to try this guide: https://dontkillmyapp.com/samsung

For OnePlus Android 12, the only solution that works is to lock the app in memory in the recents screen: https://dontkillmyapp.com/assets/img/oneplus_locking.jpg

Can you please try this and come back with feedback if it works?

Thanks!

I'm coming back after some months. Finally found the issue and fixed it. Many thanks to a Quick Cursor user who sent a nice bug report on email with all the details included and a nice adb log that pointed me the issue.

The issue wasn't Samsung's fault, it was my fault 😥. Samsung was the only one that correctly set a limit and didn't let developers do stupid things like I did.

Sad and disappointed but glad that I finally fixed the issue.

I recommend everyone to update to version 1.16.1 (128):

  • FIXED Samsung Android 12 crash bug!
  • add accessibility service consent dialog (Google requirement for Android 12)
  • update targetSdkVersion to 31 (Android 12)
  • update third-party dependencies
  • add Portuguese (Brazil) translation
  • update translations
  • fix bug with gesture navigation on tracker fling
There is also performance improvement on other device because of this fix.

Hello,

It appears Quick Cursor causes issues to MacroDroid's drawer feature when the swipe mode trigger for Quick Cursor is set to simple/advanced and is on the same side as MacroDroid's drawer (left/right edges only; bottom nav causes no issues).

The issue is that when you try to open MacroDroid's drawer (by swiping horizontally from the edge; swiping up or down to open the drawer still works as intended), an Android back button press is initiated instead of opening the drawer (for example, the back button press happens even when you're in the home screen — which you can't normally do!).

As a workaround, because I want the Quick Cursor trigger and MacroDroid's drawer to be on the same side, I'll be using the floating tracker instead, which is no big deal.

I'm posting this to bring awareness of this issue, especially if other users who happen to use both apps run into this issue and aren't aware of why it is occurring.

Nevertheless, loving the app as it increases my productivity. Thanks!

Thanks for feedback!

I'm not a MacroDroid user but I installed the app. I will play with it and try to debug the issue.

Can you please help me reproduce the issue? Can you enable Quick Cursor -> Settings -> Debug -> Debug visuals, and then try to do a screen record with the issue?

It would help me understand it better and then replicate it on my device.

Thanks again for you feedback.

Apologies for the delayed response!

Here's a screen record of the issue with Quick Cursor debug visuals and pointer location enabled.
Interestingly, this issue does not occur when using the 3-button navigation (only during gesture navigation).

Though as mentioned in my previous post, there are workarounds (including opening the drawer by swiping it up or down), so it is not the end of the world.

Thanks for the record. The second I saw it, I understood what's the issue.
Short version: Android gesture navigation (back swipe, home swipe, etc) can be overridden by apps, but only in a limit of 200dp vertical size. MacroDroid + QuickCursor together have more than 200dp.

Long version:
When you have gesture navigation enabled, your left and right edges act as a back button when you swipe, and the bottom act as a home/multitask button when you swipe, there is no other way to control your phone, only by this gestures.
This can conflict with some apps already developed, or new apps that are developed. Some apps need a swipe from left or right exactly where the "Back" swipe is, so Android made a special handling for that and let the developers override the system navigation gesture at specific positions: https://developer.android.com/training/gestures/gesturenav

That's what MacroDroid does, that's what Quick Cursor does, both apps uses setSystemGestureExclusionRects() to override the system navigation gesture at position X, Y, which means the system back gesture won't work at that position, and the app will have priority and full control at a specific region on the edge. And this is how both apps can work with system gesture navigation enabled.

But this can cause a problem, because if an app (or multiple apps), sets an exclusion over all the swipe back region, the user can't swipe back anymore, and can't control the phone anymore, so Android needed to find a way to force this to not happen, so they introduced two concepts:

1. There are some specific regions on the screen that can't be taken by apps, they are specially reserved for navigation gestures. So if you put the triggers on this zones, they won't have priority over navigation gestures. This is described here: getMandatorySystemGestureInsets()
2. They set a limit on how much space can be took by apps. The limit is 200dp vertically, which means that if MacroDroid takes 100dp, and Quick Cursor will take 200dp, in total it is 300dp, which is greater than 200dp, so it won't take effect all. Only 200dp of the edge will have priority over gesture navigation, the other 100dp will work as a gesture navigation.

So, this is an Android limitation that makes sense, you don't want an app (or multiple apps) to take over your back swipe because you can't control your phone anymore. There is no solution to this problem, because this is working exactly as expected for Android, even if for the user can be confusing.

In Quick Cursor I implemented a toggle in settings called "Restrict system navigation gestures" which can be enabled or disabled.

There is no solution for this, only workarounds:
  1. Reduce the size of MacroDroid drawer and Quick Cursor triggers, so together they won't be bigger than 200dp. (that's what happens when you have the floating tracker, it is smaller)
  2. Disable Quick Cursor -> Settings -> Restrict system navigation gestures. In this case MacroDroid will have enough space for it's drawer, and for Quick Cursor you can do one of the following:
    1. if you want to grab a cursor, swipe vertically (bottom to top, or top to bottom) on the triggers, in this way the back gesture is skipped, and the triggers are working
    2. make the triggers wider, so you can grab the cursor from "near the edge", not from the "edge". So you can trigger the cursor, not the back gesture, but you have learn this.


Of course, there are the others options: use the 3 buttons (but this is not an option if you are already used to use the gesture navigations), use the floating tracker, etc etc

As you said in the previous post, swiping vertically (up or down) works because the back gesture is not triggered, but drawer or quick cursor triggers are.

I hope I explained what happens, and I hope one of the workarounds will work for you.

Hi. Your app is amazing and I have bought it for support. I was wondering if it could be in a future update to have the option for auto click after some seconds. could it be?
Thanx;)

Thanks for support. Hmm, a feature like that would be for an auto clicker app, and I don't want Quick Cursor to be in auto clicker apps category, because Google it's strict about apps that use accessibility services and I don't want to risk Google to ban my app or account. I must be really careful with the accessibility permissions and for what I use them.

Sorry, other users requested auto clicker functionality as well, but I can't risk the app :(

Unfortunately, this is a Chrome "feature". They specifically made Chrome to auto detect any accessibility service enabled (not just Quick Cursor), and when an accessibility service is enabled, it will switch the tabs viewer. They didn't include an option to opt out from this feature, and we can't do anything about this.

We can only report this to Chrome and hope they will change it.

    Quick Cursor

    ZiGWIey.png


    The app is free and without ads!


    XDA Article



    What is it for:
    Helps you to use big screens easily with one hand by introducing a computer like cursor controlled with one finger by swiping from edge of the screen.


    How to use:
    1. Swipe from left or right margin from the bottom half of the screen.
    2. Reach the top half of the screen by dragging the tracker using one hand in the bottom half.
    3. Touch the tracker to click with the cursor. The tracker will disappear on any action outside the tracker or after a period of time.

    TIP: While using the quick cursor, touch with another finger to open the quick settings menu.

    Quick Cursor is an alternative to the already known Reachability Cursor app. I really liked it, and I appreciated the developer attitude and his vision about the app in his replies online. Unfortunately, NiftyUI's last message about the app was on 7 October 2018 and the last app update was on 4 October 2018 and it doesn't work on most Android 10 phones. I do hope that he is ok, and give him a big thumbs up for the idea and the implementation!

    Why
    I saw a lot of threads and replies on XDA and Reddit for an alternative app for Reachability Cursor for a long time and I needed one too!

    Monetization
    The app uses the same monetization scheme as Reachability Cursor: it offers an In-App purchase for "PRO" mode which adds some more functionalities (floating tracker mode, long clicks, edge actions) and a lot of customization on each part of the app: cursor, tracker, trigger area, tracker area, cursor area, feedback. Basically this is a support for the developer (me), because the free version should be enough for most use cases.

    Help needed
    The app should run on Android 7.0 or later, theoretically. I tested it only on 10 devices running Android 9 and Android 10 (Pixel, Samsung, Xiaomi, Oneplus).

    I need help to collect some feedback on this early version from more devices, so please send feedback anywhere (here on XDA, Telegram, Reddit, Email, Play store), including the device name and Android version.

    I'm more interested in this topics:
    • critical bugs that won't let you use the app properly
    • if it works ok daily in your case
    • if you see any performance impact on your phone
    • 90hz or 120hz affected?
    • feature requests
    • I need these feedback to estimate the current state of the app and how much work I have to do until I can fully release it, not early access, and more polished. I don't work as a full time Android Developer, so I don't have a lot of things necessary to test it well enough on my own (time, phones, knowledge, etc), and don't want to release the app publicly if it is not polished enough.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the record. The second I saw it, I understood what's the issue.
    Short version: Android gesture navigation (back swipe, home swipe, etc) can be overridden by apps, but only in a limit of 200dp vertical size. MacroDroid + QuickCursor together have more than 200dp.

    Long version:
    When you have gesture navigation enabled, your left and right edges act as a back button when you swipe, and the bottom act as a home/multitask button when you swipe, there is no other way to control your phone, only by this gestures.
    This can conflict with some apps already developed, or new apps that are developed. Some apps need a swipe from left or right exactly where the "Back" swipe is, so Android made a special handling for that and let the developers override the system navigation gesture at specific positions: https://developer.android.com/training/gestures/gesturenav

    That's what MacroDroid does, that's what Quick Cursor does, both apps uses setSystemGestureExclusionRects() to override the system navigation gesture at position X, Y, which means the system back gesture won't work at that position, and the app will have priority and full control at a specific region on the edge. And this is how both apps can work with system gesture navigation enabled.

    But this can cause a problem, because if an app (or multiple apps), sets an exclusion over all the swipe back region, the user can't swipe back anymore, and can't control the phone anymore, so Android needed to find a way to force this to not happen, so they introduced two concepts:

    1. There are some specific regions on the screen that can't be taken by apps, they are specially reserved for navigation gestures. So if you put the triggers on this zones, they won't have priority over navigation gestures. This is described here: getMandatorySystemGestureInsets()
    2. They set a limit on how much space can be took by apps. The limit is 200dp vertically, which means that if MacroDroid takes 100dp, and Quick Cursor will take 200dp, in total it is 300dp, which is greater than 200dp, so it won't take effect all. Only 200dp of the edge will have priority over gesture navigation, the other 100dp will work as a gesture navigation.

    So, this is an Android limitation that makes sense, you don't want an app (or multiple apps) to take over your back swipe because you can't control your phone anymore. There is no solution to this problem, because this is working exactly as expected for Android, even if for the user can be confusing.

    In Quick Cursor I implemented a toggle in settings called "Restrict system navigation gestures" which can be enabled or disabled.

    There is no solution for this, only workarounds:
    1. Reduce the size of MacroDroid drawer and Quick Cursor triggers, so together they won't be bigger than 200dp. (that's what happens when you have the floating tracker, it is smaller)
    2. Disable Quick Cursor -> Settings -> Restrict system navigation gestures. In this case MacroDroid will have enough space for it's drawer, and for Quick Cursor you can do one of the following:
      1. if you want to grab a cursor, swipe vertically (bottom to top, or top to bottom) on the triggers, in this way the back gesture is skipped, and the triggers are working
      2. make the triggers wider, so you can grab the cursor from "near the edge", not from the "edge". So you can trigger the cursor, not the back gesture, but you have learn this.


    Of course, there are the others options: use the 3 buttons (but this is not an option if you are already used to use the gesture navigations), use the floating tracker, etc etc

    As you said in the previous post, swiping vertically (up or down) works because the back gesture is not triggered, but drawer or quick cursor triggers are.

    I hope I explained what happens, and I hope one of the workarounds will work for you.

    So we finally have an XDA thread for this wonderful app. ?

    A huge shout out to the dev (@micku7zu). He is absolutely amazing and super responsive to all questions, feature requests, bug reports, etc. ??

    Yes, I plan to handle the keyboard by raising the trigger zones when the keyboard appears on the screen. It will be available in the next release, hopefully.

    Yes, there is already an option to set the opacity to tracker, just change the opacity on the color of the tracker. Unfortunately, this customization are available only on the pro version. Settings -> Tracker -> Inside color and Outside color, change the opacity for both of them to 0.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I found the opacity after my comment, so I went back and edited it as you were replying lol

    Honestly an option to just completely disable them during keyboard would probably be best, if you're typing you probably aren't planning on clicking anything out of reach until you're done typing and the keyboard closes
