Known issues,
1, This app may hinder touching space bar while typing. The workaround is touch the upper part spacebar, disable "improve sensitivity" if possible, or use a IME that has a bigger space bar.
2, No back button and menu button support, because those need root permission.
3, This app is not suitable for device that solely use virtual keys.
4, Swipe Home Button has been tested with Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note 2, and HTC One. However, I can not assure other device can use this app.

Works great, but one feature request! The app works great, but please add the ability to disable the app whenever the onscreen keyboard is out. I think this should be technically possible? Please reply and let me know if not! I would not mind if you needed to use the "retrieve running apps" permission. You may also be able to do it based on the ongoing notification that pops up whenever the keyboard is out - the notifications permission may be less alarming to the types who are very concerned with security. If added, I'll bump it up to 5 stars!

Nexus 5 not working properly It works fine on nexus 4 but since I upgraded to nexus 5 it is not working when i swipe from home button my finger needs to be a little higher and because there are no borders to see it is hard to have it work especially if you are in different apps.
