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!

Watch the short video to see how it works. There are other similar apps, but we strongly believe ours is the best in terms of practicality and pure awesomeness.
We wanted to bring you something simple, but very useful and effective. Something you would enjoy using everyday with absolutely no side effects. There are battery saving options to minimise the impact on battery. We have steadily measured around 3% battery consumption for the whole day on our test devices.
We hope it works just as good on your phone.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
Unfortunately in some devices, the accelerometer sensor cannot be used when the screen is OFF. Awesome On will not work on these devices.
Please do not give a low rating if this is unfortunately the case.
Link to list of devices:
Android 4.0.4 and 4.1 Users - There is a well known bug that was introduced in 4.0.4 that causes the screen to turn on again after 'Awesome Off'. We recommend changing your lock screen to 'none' for the time being.
** Features **
- Simply tilt the phone up, to turn the screen on.
- Fling your hand 2 times, near the proximity sensor, to turn the screen off.
- Or simply click 'Screen Off' icon.
- Separate shortcut icons for 'Start/Stop', 'Settings' and 'Screen Off'.
- Awesome On Sensitivity.
- Awesome Off Sensitivity.
- Battery Saving Mode. Tip: Test first disabled.
- Remove notification option. And gracefully handles situations where Android restarts Awesome On Off when notification is removed.
- Disable Awesome Off while running landscape applications.
- While you're on a phone call, Awesome On Off will not be active.
- Aweseom On Bypass Non-Security Lockscreen option.
Ultimate Version Features
- The Ultimate feature. When you're about to hit the road, fling your hand 3 times (or simply click the 'Ultimate Off' shortcut icon) to turn the screen off. Awesome On Off is completely idle until you manually turn the screen on again. You never need to Start/Stop manually with the shortcut icon. You are in total control.
- Ultimate Off audio confirmation.
- Start on boot.
- No Ads. The Free version shows an Ad every 20th time the screen is turned on. You can easily close the Ad, should not be disruptive for daily use even with the free version.
About Battery Saving Mode
- When the screen is off, depending on the Battery level and type of background apps you have running, Android can decide to put the CPU to full sleep. Awesome On will not work when the CPU is in full sleep. When Battery Saving Mode is enabled, Awesome On Off will not interfere and let the CPU go to full sleep as usual. You can disable Battery Saving Mode completely or set a desired interval to keep the CPU partially awake, ensuring Awesome On will always work.
Imagine moving the numbers by hand and see the numbers calculate and change in front of your eyes as you smash those numbers together !
Gesture Based Calculators is something I have in mind for a while now and the popularity of Touch Technology is finally at hand for me to share this simple thought of mine with the world.
I hope you will have as much fun using this alternate calculator as me.
As a matter of fact, I find myself using this calculator for all my basic arithmetic works now.
Please note that this calculator will always round off every calculation to a maximum of 2 decimal places and no more, for example, you will have 9.23 instead of 9.23153542541.
To see this app in action, please go to:
They are designed to play in a continuous loop fashion to create the impression of some mega processing in the background.
The interface reacts to touches so you can "play" with it and look uber serious while you are doing it :D
You will be able to choose between playing with yourself or with your peers to see who will be able to "Unlock" the Maglock Servo first.
Sit around with your friends in a circle and turn up the volume!
It will be unmistakably clear who wins the game first :D
Let go of all your inner sadness, depression and things that hold you back in life.
Let go of the pain and secrets that you hold within you that you couldn't hold it in anymore.
This app offer itself as a Sanctuary where you can pour your secrets anonymously out into an ocean of secrets, nobody will know who you are and you can be relived of your pain.
You will also get to read the sadness and pain of people around the world and know that we are all human after all.
There are no settings to fiddle around, this app records to the high quality standards that indie film makers require, so there is no situation where one might "forget" to set settings to high quality when setting everything else up from lights to cameras.
During filming usage as a microphone, you wouldn't have to worry about if you’ve remembered to set the mic to best settings, this app only records to best settings, there are no other settings.
You best remember to have enough space on your device for the audio recorded using this app, this app only concern itself with recording in high quality, file size is of zero priority to the creation of this app.
With an App like this that records to high quality settings, the only limitations to it will be the microphone attached to it.
Phone’s microphones are designed to pick up a narrow band of audio well, but not the normal range required for film or even normal podcasts.
It is highly advisable to use this app with an external microphone attached to the phone.
Any microphone you get from a thrive store will be able to record a fuller range of audio, hence will definitely sound better when used in conjunction with this app.
The gain setting has been meticulously calibrated to guide you to record good audio.
Before you start recording, adjust the gain so that your voice or whatever you are recording is within or lower than the healthy to distortion range, try to AVOID setting the gain that leads your audio into the red zone to ensure good audio quality.
It is ok and perfectly reasonable to record audio that is slightly quieter, professionals always amplify the audio later in post, this is better than increasing the gain to a level where while getting loud audios, also gather background noise as well, that is not good.
The audio recorded by this app can be accessed via the File Manager.
By now you must be really good with the Touch Gestures required for your beloved iPhone/iPad.
But how fast are you at executing these Gestures if your life depends on it ?
Your ability to complete this Game will rely solely on your Gesture Execution Speed.
Once you've completed the Game [Assuming you ever will, the Final Stage is Crazy but not impossible], this game offers a Group Challenge Mode where you can Face Off your Gesture Execution Speed with your friends that also have this app in their device.
Get ready to swing & twist your fingers away in this game ! Best of Luck !
We all know about the 30 seconds rest period one should allow oneself between each sets.
There are many workout programs out there that are really useful in the sense that they also keep track of your set count, calorie intake, workout frequency and what not.
But I just want a simple program that alerts me when my 30 second rest period is over and no more.
That’s all I want it to do, no complications, no extra functions.
I hope you will find this one button program as useful to your weight training workout as it have been for me.
[Of course this program could be useful for anyone that needs to kick start a game upon a signal but this is a miscellaneous by product as a result of what this program does.]
You can press the small button at the bottom left to reset the 30 second countdown
You...are going to Die !
It is something that we don’t want to think about, ironically it is perhaps the only FACT that can save us from ourselves when we have the audacity to say we are “bored” or how we are such a terrible victim of life that we can’t do anything about ANYTHING at all.
This app will serve to remind you from now on, how close you are...to your eventual demise.
If this doesn’t get you off your Butt...nothing will.
Due to the harsh disciplinary nature of this app, it is not recommended for anyone above the age of 80.
I created this app because after using a number of teleprompter apps, I have come to know exactly what I need as a lone ranger YouTuber.
The interface is very in your face and straight forward, all the knickknacks your might want to modify like scrolling speed and font size WHILE the camera is rolling is right there.
You don't have to stop the recording flow or your mood just to press what feels like ten thousand buttons to get to the interface that allows you to adjust the font size if you end up standing a little further or God forbid you need to change just a single word and have to go to another interface to do that.
Build in Whip simulator to let you have a sense of where your whip will be based on your swing.
Feel free to shout the funny text that appears on every whip to heighten the funniness :)
Remember to maximize the volume and have the speaker faced towards your friends ;p
