Hovering Controls

Hovering Controls


Ever wanted to use your smartphone without touching the screen? Now you can!!
With Hovering Controls you can use your phone just like Samsung Galaxy S4 does with Air Gesture and much more!

HOW TO UNINSTALL IF YOU ENABLED ADMIN:
App menu-->Device Admin Options-->Disable then uninstall

Free limited version available for test!

Email me if any error happens!

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!! (browser scroll and gallery slides 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

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.

Music Controls How-To:
1.- Start Hovering Controls with Music Control Activated in settings.
2.- Open your music/video player and start playing a song/video
3.- You can now use other apps while listening music, Hovering Controls will remember wich app was playing your song/video, if you want to change the player, just open it and start playing a song/video!

Known issues:
- HTC ONE not working as it should.
- Firefox not suported.
- for some users, slide twice is difficult, we are implementing a new shake/tilt system.

- Silence incoming call.
- Switch betwen recent apps (like back and forward behaviour)
- Fast go to home screen
- QuickGlance like Galaxy S4 has!!!

- Shake phone during a call to activate/deactivate speakerphone.

And if you have your phone Rooted...:

I got this one because the one I was using stopped working after my phone upgraded to Android 5. This one works great, but it lacks a few features. First of all, it needs direct support for Amazon music player. It still works with it automatically though. Second, it will pause playback when I hover but it will not play again once it is paused, I have to hit play manually. And lastly, it needs an auto-open feature, so it will automatically open my designated music player when started

The only app in Android market doing what it says. So many options to customize. Additional options if your device is rooted. I tried auto answer with many different apps. But all of them used to answer as the device was in my pocket or I couldn't use my flip cover. With this app I could change the delay and make it work. Worth the money spent. Kindly maintain this with future versions please
