About this app

*Requires ADB, root or supported device*
*This app is no longer being maintained*

Give fresh new look to your phone with Fluid N.G, the navigation gestures app inspired by Breccia's concept.

There are two main gestures: 'Quick swipe' and 'Swipe & Hold' which can trigged from the bottom or side edges of the screen. The side triggers are only available on the bottom half of the screen, allowing you to still access other app side menus.

• Back
• Home
• Recent apps
• Toggle split screen
• Open notifications
• Open power dialog
• Open quick settings
• Launch Google search overlay
• Open keyboard selector
• Voice Search
• Launch assistant
• Launch app
• Launch shortcut

The app has a built-in option to hide the software navigation keys (if necessary) but it requires either root access or a pc to grant the app a permission.

Android ADB PC/Mac instructions:
1 - Enable Developer Mode in the Android settings.
2 - Enable USB Debugging
3 - Setup ADB on your PC
4 - Run the following adb command to grant the permission:
adb shell pm grant com.fb.fluid android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS

To restore the navigation keys just disable FNG or run the following ADB command:
adb shell wm overscan 0,0,0,0

This is an open-source tool to easily grant FNG the necessary permissions on Windows. Get it here

The app is great both on Oreo and pie. Buying the pro version to get more features and hide the bubbles for a true full screen experience is well worth it. Edit: i do know that you can change if the triggers rotate with the screen, what I'm talking about is the fact that when you do rotate it the "bottom" trigger is too small. Instead of reaching towards the edges like it used too it's just a small portion in the center.

Love it. With this app I can put my finger on the little brand logo at the bottom of my phone and swipe up to the screen and it will actually work! A different app I was using before wouldn't register unless my finger started on the screen. This is amazing and a total lifesaver. So responsive, so intuitive, and the side access is crazy perfect. Having to pick "hot spots" for things like this in the past was annoying. I have a huge phone and tiny hands, so my grip is different almost every time I pick up my phone, so choosing one "hot spot" wasn't really helpful. With this app, I can swipe from the side at the very top or even the bottom and it will still register. If you had a Palm Pre or Palm Pixie, the gesturing will feel very familiar. It saves screen space without compromising navigation or ease of use. Another important setting I found was the option to have the native nav board appear in certain situations (in settings, when the keyboard is open, etc.) Which makes it very compatible with other apps, like keyboards, that also use gesturing. Highly recommend this one. I don't need the pro features, but I'm buying it anyway. These guys deserve it.

Can we get an "action" for toggling portrait mode? After using it for a bit I became annoyed with the fact that notification icons remain stuck at the top of the phone when clicked on. They disappear when checked a second time but it's so annoying I may stop using fluid because of it. Update: this bug was fixed and the rating was updated to reflect that.
