Hovering Controls v1.2.7 Apk use your phone just like Samsung Galaxy S4 does with Air Gesture and much more
Updated: July 30, 2013
Current Version: 1.2.7
Requires Android: 2.2 and up
Hovering Controls uses the proximity sensor of your device to register simple motions performed in front of your device. Predetermined apps can be launched by either hovering over the sensor, swiping once, or swiping twice. Silencing an alarm or ringtone is as simple as a hand wave. You can also control your media playback this way, allowing you to change to the next or previous song or video without ever turning on the phone screen and physically touching it.
Do you like Quick Glance from Galaxy S4? Now you can have it too!!
And that is not all, you can lock/unlock your phone, answer calls, slide betwen photos in your gallery and scroll up/down in your browser!! (some features need a rooted device)
Two modes are available, both offering a different take on opening apps:
- Target mode: open a pre-determined app with a set gesture
- Carousel mode: open up apps from a set list of apps
Promotional video is from early Beta.
- The app uses proximity sensor, use test sensor in menu to test your sensor sensibility and finde how you have to wave for it to detect. If you decide to hide notification icon, the service may stop working if android needs memery resources (it will stop detecting events ) for a while until it is restarted by its own.
