Quite a handy app.. Must for all. Using this on my nexus 6. It runs like a charm. One star less coz we get only 3 gestures to play with i.e. hori shake, vertical and forward. Cant u guys make it like horizontal left and right vertical down and up and forward and back separate, it will really give 3 extra gestures to play around.
