Twisty Launcher

Twisty Launcher


With Twisty Launcher opening your favorite apps is easier than ever. All you need to do is hold your phone in your hand and flick to the left twice to open your camera. Twisty Launcher will look for this hand gesture from the background, so you can perform the gesture from inside any app. This makes it super easy to not miss a quick photo opportunity.


No need to fumble around trying to quickly open your favorite apps. Twisty launcher allows unlocking up to three different gestures. Each gesture can be configured to launch the app of your choosing.


What are your favorite stacks! Let us know in the comments.
Some of our favorite choices so far are:
- Camera - Don’t miss a shot!
- Google Voice Search - Allows you to start talking to Google Now quickly from within any app
- Google Gesture Search - Quickly start swiping to pick an app to launch


Why let the Motorola Moto X have all the fun, when you can launch your camera with gestures for free today!


* Android prevents launching apps from the background for about 5 seconds after pressing the home button. If you notice a delay with launching apps try to avoid hitting the home button right before doing the gesture. The only way around this limitation is on a rooted phone by using Xposed with the StopSwitchDelay module.

The face down up gesture should now detect much more accurately and not get confused with the twist gesture. Thanks for reporting the issue to us!

Perfect for camera Works perfect on my moto x. Can take on-the-fly without stopping to unlock and open the camera.

Doesn't work I'm shaking, tilting, chopping my phone like a crazy person and still, the camera doesn't come on.

Unreliable While the chop method worked, the twist method only worked once (and i tried like 50 times). And it cost a dollar. To not work. Fail.
