For 1 year I've had the same issue. Loved this app, used it for years with LG V30, Pixel 3/5/6/7pro. Android 12/13 update broke one gesture on my Pixel 6 pro & 7 pro - the recent apps option when swiping up on the left/right side. The issue happens when in an app, with multiple apps running, swipe up for recent apps moves back several apps like it's scrolling, instead of showing the last app. Everything else is perfect, but this has been an issue since Android 12. Still happening on Android 13.

I recently upgraded from an older pixel to a new one, and thus upgraded to android 11. Most of the review will be for android 10, but a quick note about using it on 11: It is now unusable for me for two reasons, one of which likely has nothing to do with the app itself. The first reason it's unusable I suspect has to do with Google removing the immersive mode in developer options that used to allow me to set my own gestures and hide the navbar, and removing it has seriously hindered some apps' functionality. The second reason is that it only sporadically works; I can get one gesture to work once (opening a pie menu from a side button), and once that's displayed once, it no longer works until I force stop the app and then restart it. I'm actually very sad about this because it's such a useful app. If this turns out to be user error, I'll update the rating and this review. However, up until the android 11 update, this was an essential app for me. It's amazingly useful, allowing me to get the most out of my phone and customizing gestures that the stock system will not allow for. You can set gestures to open a pie menu (clicking a button will allow you to open a menu to launch apps, or go to the home screen, or ... quite a lot of things, really), set left, right and bottom gestures that do different things depending on what you do on those edges, like setting a long-press on the left edge that goes back, or a press-and-swipe gesture that opens a particular app, or a double-tap that turns on night mode. It's amazingly useful and I really hope that I can get this to work again soon.

Great app for controlling your device quickly and efficiently. I am wondering if there is a way to correct the issue with opening an app, I am getting a delay message occasionally saying "delayed by Android system for 4 seconds". I'm assuming it's a limiting security feature in the operating system (pixel 2, Android 9.0). Besides that it's always been great, highly recommend

For security, Android does not allow for 3rd party apps to launch another app for 5 seconds just after you come back to the home by the home key. So, you cannot launch immediately an app from this app just after coming back to the home. Thanks.
