About this app

How many touches and clicks you have made on your phone every day? How much time you have spent on switching apps? How many useless operations, which should be saved, cost your PRECIOUS time?

Be Simple!

I have created ES File Explorer all free versions from 2009-2015, after that, I created fooView.

fooView - Float Viewer is a magic floating button. It's a system enhancement tool to help you access your favorite websites, apps, games, files, music, photos, videos, and screen contents by a gesture using one hand.

Please check the video.

fooView will utilize the internal power of your smart phones using machine learning techniques, save 80% of your operations, let everything be simple.

An easy gesture can do what?
·A crop for a quick screenshot, recognized automatically, share, and search?
·A swipe to preview files?
·An easy gesture to replace all the navigation physical keys?
·A long press gesture to switch and manage apps quickly?


One hand to operate, only a gesture.
·Crop a word to translate, save, share to your messenger...
·Crop a name such as in videos to search in multiple search engines
·Crop an image such as in games to screenshot (Android 5.0+), search, and share to social network or photos community...

Special Note
When you set gesture for locking screen or grant the device administrator permission from settings manually to avoid this app being killed by the system, this app uses the device administration API, and you need disable the permission before uninstallation. It's required by the system.

How fooView help the disabled users with Accessibility Services?
1) For visually impaired users, you can select words or images from the screen using fooView and enlarge it for a better readability.
2) For physical disabilities, fooView provides powerful single hand features, you can use one hand to operate the phone, switch apps easily, replacing the navigation hard keys, which can hardly be controlled by one hand.
3) Some features are in the development.

Why fooView ask Read_Phone_State permission?
This permission is usually for reading IMEI code for your device by many apps. But fooView won't read IMEI according to GDPR. fooView uses this permission to judge the phone in call state, so that when the call is incoming, fooView will stop music play and minimize the floating window to avoid overlaying.

Tremendous app but could use a few tweaks. Font sizes in the UI are much too small on modern phones. And as another reviewer mentioned, the selection tool that intelligently outlines blocks of content (e.g., in the Twitter app, it selects a complete tweet with metadata) should allow copying as an image as well as copying the text, currently the only available option. In general, though, this app is a Swiss army knife that performs countless functions well.

In general this is an incredibly useful tool, but whatever you did with the most recent update completely broke it. Now whenever you do any file operations it seems to rescan your entire phone and takes like 10 seconds before you can see your files again. Also the screenshot window keeps flashing up and then disappearing before you can do anything with it whenever you try to do a screen grab.

I enjoy the app for the most part, but I have 2 major complaints: #1 is that if too many tabs are open the app will crash with no easy way to restore tabs other than to individually select them all (they are arranged in order of she they were opened not when closed) #2 in last few updates the search by image feature is partially broken. Yandex, Yahoo & Bing removed from image search options with no way to add new and some existing engines don't work Will change back to 5 if either issue is fixed
