Description & Details


Navigate without the buttons

Jealous of the cool new gesture navigation feature on all those new phones?
With Navigation Gestures, you don't have to go out and buy an aforementioned new phone if you want to change the way you use your phone. This app brings gesture navigation to any Android device!

Best of all, with Navigation Gestures you can completely hide the stock navigation bar
without root! This is the only gesture control app with this feature.

Swipe left, right, up, or down. Swipe up and hold. Tap. Double tap. Long press. There's a lot of ways you can interact with the gesture bar to control your phone. Don’t like how the gesture bar looks? You can customize its appearance! Here’s what you can
do:

* Media actions are not guaranteed to work with every app. Media actions use standard Android APIs to work with most apps.

** If you notice that an app is "slow" to launch after using the pill to trigger the home button, that's because of an obscure change made all the way back in Android 4.4 KitKat. Unless you have this Xposed Module*or a custom ROM installed with the patch, there's no way around it.
