This app could be amazing and necessary for all OP6 users if it weren't for 1 fatal flaw. The area in which it's enabled cannot be touched, meaning that things like the spacebar are difficult to touch since it has a smaller touch box. If this is impossible to implement, please clarify it. Otherwise, it is almost a necessity to have an option to allow touching underneath the gestures area. Fantastic app otherwise.

Simple, vast options, and not some weird onscreen pill. Quick developer response on g+. Hopefully a long press of the back button can be added as an action to use with Chrome's new popup history menu that appears with a long press of the back navigation key. May not be the best if you have zero bottom bezel on your phone, but if your phone does have any bottom bezel, it makes these gestures amazingly easy since you can start offscreen for the upward gestures. The recognition is fantastic, even set to only 12 pixels high on a QHD screen (default is like 30 or so), so it doesn't interfere with any other controls. And using it on a Moto Z2 Force means I can disable the nav bar by the system, which enables Moto's home button gestures (which are great, but limited to only home/back/recents, so after this app, I'd rate them the second best gesture navigation around). With the nav bar hidden by the system, the three basic gestures are always there should the app ever stop (not that it has, but just in case, I always have a way to navigate as a failsafe) and I don't need another app tok hide it. Not having a free version to trout the basics put me off this app for a while, until I had tried all the others and hated them. I eventually gave in and bought it and I'm very happy I did. This is the best gesture nav system on Android, period.
