Knockr (Beta)

Knockr (Beta)


Knockr allows you to launch apps with a gesture from anywhere. With Knockr and an OLED device, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Moto X, you can open with a gesture when the screen is off. If you don't have an OLED device you can still use Knockr, just check the 'Lockscreen Only' option in the settings and Knockr will become your lockscreen and you can open any app straight from the lockscreen.

Knockr Everywhere adds a floating button to your screen that when clicked will open the gesture listener so you can launch an app anywhere/anytime.

Tasker Integration gives you even more control of Knockr. Use Tasker to set the parameters you want for Knockr to open/pause. Tasker integration currently is for the "off screen" feature of Knockr. The three options you can choose for Tasker to control are on, off and toggle. On turns launches Knockr. Off closes Knockr completely. Toggle option toggles Knockr sleep (release and reset the screen wake) the same way that the 'Power Management' option does. When using Tasker integration it is recommended to switch Knockr off in the settings and uncheck power management if using the toggle feature.

Gestures include:
Double Tap, Swipe Up, Swipe Down, Swipe Left, Swipe Right, Long Press, Up Arrow, Double Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Double Down Arrow, Right Arrow, Left Arrow, Clockwise circle, Double Clockwise Circle, Counter-Clockwise Circle, and Double Counter-Clockwise Circle.

Volume Up button when in Landscape: Pressing the volume up button when the device is in Landscape will automatically open the camera


Known issues:
Power button doesn't turn screen on as expected.
Lockscreen Background doesn't show correctly when using the Google Now Launcher (Lockscreen Only Mode)

Good but.... This is a fantastic app, but it needs some improvements. First of please make it more responsive because it may take a couple taps to get it working. Secondly, can you make the power button functional because on my phone when this app is on it takes me 5 presses to get it to work like it should. Lastly, can you make this app compatible with other other lockscreen apps like AcDisplay because they don't work when this app is active. This app would be perfect if those problems get fixed.
