Navigation Gestures – Brings gesture navigation to any Android device

[App] Navigation Gestures

Navigation GesturesNavigation Gestures : NOTICE!!

Because of limitations added in Android P DP2, this app currently DOES NOT FUNCTION on devices running that firmware version or later.

Jealous of the cool new gesture navigation feature on the Apple iPhone X and Android P?
With Navigation Gestures, you don’t have to go out and buy a new phone if you want to change the way you use your phone. This app brings gesture navigation to any Android device!

Best of all, with Navigation Gestures you can completely hide the stock navigation bar
without root! This is the only gesture control app with this feature.

Swipe left, right, up, or down. Swipe up and hold. Tap. Double tap. Long press. There’s a lot of ways you can interact with the gesture bar to control your phone. Don’t like how the gesture bar looks? You can customize its appearance! Here’s what you can

Change pill width
Change pill height
Change pill vertical position

You can also customize the action for each gesture, as follows:
Free actions:

Go back
Go home
Open multitasking screen
Open Assistant
Switch to previous app (requires Nougat+)
Hide pill

And if you purchase the premium addon, you get access to the following:

Split screen (requires Nougat+)
Pull down notifications
Pull down quick settings
Open power menu
Media: play previous track*
Media: play next track*
Media: play/pause current track*

Media actions are not guaranteed to work with every app. Media actions use standard Android APIs to work with most apps.

Navigation Gestures user reviews :

Love it. Works very well. And I actually love having the bar above the keyboard, otherwise i will keep hitting it instead of space bar. I would have personally preferred some kind of hidden navigation options, like what All in One Gestures offer. BTW, once I’m in a full screen app, I’m stuck. How do i get out? Turn off, use nav bar, then turn on again? Can that be automatically detected (when in a full screen app) and enabled/disabled as needed?

I really like it. It has some bugs and annoyences but overall the best implementation for non iPhone or pixel(P beta) users. Bugs are: it is hard to swipe down to hide it, and it appears at the top of the keyboard while writing. Animation could be faster beacuse I can use the back button furiously in Chrome where it cant keep up ( I have it on swipe left to go back). Thank you XDA for making this.

Thank you for your working. All the gestures are working good. There was some bugs: 1, the animation seems too slow. 2, Some time the app can’t show any interface for A while, such as When A charge cable plug in, when Wechat video full screen, or some accidentally dispear. My phone is S8, the app already add in free use of battery list and any other save power apps. Best Luan

It’s very useful and offers a lot of customisation. However, I wish you give the user the ability to change the animation duration, it will be awesome if we can reduce it. The only (real) problem that I am having with my s8 is when I unlock the phone with a hard press on the home button, the navigation gestures bar disappears. Thanks a lot XDA
