Knockr (Beta)

Knockr (Beta)


Knockr Black Screen: With an OLED device, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 or Moto X, Knockr will listen for gestures/knocks while the screen is off. (Recommended only to be used with an OLED device).

Knockr Lockscreen: Knockr replaces your current lock screen. Allowing you to use gestures/knocks to launch apps or unlock the device. Lock screen utilizes the palette api built into Android to customize the camera button (and nav bar on Android Lollipop) with colors pulled straight from your wallpaper.

Knockr Everywhere: Adds a floating button to your screen that when clicked will open the gesture/knock listener so you can launch an app from inside of any app 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 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.

Knocks are limited to 3 unless a donation is made.
