SideSqueeze+ is an app that brings extended functionality to your unrooted (or rooted) Galaxy device, helping you to do more with it. The primary feature of SideSqueeze+ is detecting both squeeze and press gestures via the analysis of barometric sensor pressure data. However with the recent addition of the Plus module, more functionality has been added, such as: fingerprint vibration (for both front and back fingerprint scanners), face/iris unlock vibration, navigation gesture vibration, customizable fingerprint unlock actions (start the camera when you unlock with a certain finger, etc), slice gestures, double chop gestures, automatic biometric lockout, accidental touch protection options, power button long-press, various volume button combinations, S Pen button press, double press, and long press remaps, S Pen global air override (wave your pen at any time to perform home/back/recents/etc).
If your device cannot use the pressure features, you can use this app just for the Plus module by simply switching off both squeeze and press detection. This will completely suspend the analysis engine, and leave all Plus module functionality intact.
SideSqueeze+ values your privacy. It does not contain ads, nor does it collect or harvest your data. It doesn't even request permission to access the internet.
Squeeze/press functionality is only compatible with (most) weather-sealed Galaxy phones from 2017 onward. Unfortunately every phone (and case that it's in) is unique. Some devices, even of the same model, are more sensitive than others, and harder cases can add another variable by absorbing more of your squeeze. Be sure to perform a calibration as soon as you install this app. If you would like more information, check out the "Analyzer" tab in the app for a visual representation of your gesture. Be advised: SideSqueeze+ may have difficulty working with bulky cases.
For the Plus module to work (as well as certain actions), a command has to be run from a computer via Android Developer Bridge (adb). Instructions can be found from within the app on the Help tab. This step only needs to be performed once.
