Has enough features that I bought the Pro upgrade to support the developer. The hotspot around the keyboard is disabled when the keyboard is pulled up - perfect! SwipePad couldn't do this. However, hold and release works terribly with this. It would be nice to disable/speed up animations as a feature. Also, mapping hotspots to pads would have been nice, instead of swiping multiple times. I prefer exclusively swiping and releasing instead of Swipe(Swipe, Swipe)and tap. Overall, I can get used to the quirks, but it would be nice to help lure people from apps like SwipePad for this to be purely an upgrade from it (which it already mostly is).
The app itself is nice enough. However, I bought the paid version and it's features don't work correctly. On top of that, there's no option for a refund from this dev. Only a $1.49 lesson, but it seems shady just the same. Specifically, I am using a white icon pack and the folder backgrounds are white, so I can't see any icons. Wouldn't let me change color, so it's useless. I tried changing the icon pack used inside the folders, which it let me do, but it would never apply it to the launcher. My other issue is neither of the badge plugins work, so it doesn't have that functionality. It's too bad because it could have been a good app.
Now that I'm on Nougat, on my main device, I found a problem. When I'm switching to previous apps for some reason, on this Rom Meteor Swipe is treated as a previous app instead of being overlooked. Doesn't haven't on my other devices, yet only this Rom. Probably the Rom's fault, but thought I'd mention it. Another thing that happens because of this is if I kill the app then the overlay get switched off. I see you mentioned some of these things within the apps help thing. Would be nice to have some more icon sizes to choose from.
I can't believe this thing got updated. Much improved and looks like it belongs on my phone. My only wish, and it may be impossible, would be to have the option of having icons that more closely resemble the ones in the Samsung launcher, which seem to reshape icons into a squircle. I know I can install an icon theme but it's not quite the same.
Solid app. Excellent addition to most if not all large phones or devices. Really makes opening apps or shortcuts just by swiping in edge of screen. (not like edge on galaxy Samsung phones ). Does not bog down phone at this time, which is always a plus (on LG v20)
Please fix the transparent background gradient. It doesn't look good on white background. It needs to go transparent smoother. Or allow solid transparent color. Like the ivy sidebar
