Still on how to get iPhone X gestures on Android phone, allow me to tell you about another app that can be used to get some iPhone X – like gestures on your Android phone. Unlike the Gesture control next level navigation, the All-in-one-gestures requires Android 4.4 and above. It packs a greater number of features compare to the Gesture control with lots of customizations.
With All in One Gestures, you can customize the physical keys of your Android phone to respond or perform some tasks like to open apps, shortcuts, and navigate to different screens. For instance, you can set the volume up button to open the music player when you long press it and the change to the next track when the music is playing.
The app also offers several swipe gestures which work along the edges and corners of the devices. Similar to the case of physical buttons, each swipe gesture can be configured to open apps and navigate. In total, you can add 12 swipeable hotspots (by tapping the three dots on the top right corner) which will also add diagonal swipe gestures.
Under the Status Bar tab, you can find the option to add gestures to the status bar (notification bar) and navigation bar. For instance, you can open apps by double tapping the status bar. An inconvenience here is the highly responsive Notifications shade also shows up for a moment.
The app is available in free and paid versions. All the features you’ll need are readily available in the free version, but with Ads. Upgrading to the pro version won’t add any more features, it will simply disable ads.
It is also worth mentioning that though all these features are available for free users (but with ads), some of these features require root access.
