Add Swipe Utilities to Your App with SimpleFingerGestures Library

Gestures have become an increasingly important element in smartphone UI navigation. With every swipe, pinch, and drag, we’ve seen the Android user experience grow into something incredibly user friendly and intuitive. Some OEMs have implemented their own UI-specific gestures to activate various features. But despite their prevalence, there aren’t very many developer libraries to help new devs make use of them.

XDA Recognized Developer championswimmer hopes to make it easier for other developers to get started with gesture-based input thanks to his SimpleFingerGestures library. With it, devs can add gesture functionality such as two-finger swipe up, pinch, one-finger swipe left, and much more. Developers can use these gestures as triggers to launch activities or perform other tasks.

The open source SimpleFingerGestures library is available as a Github repository. And with the sample code prepared by championswimmer, you can easily create a simple application to get familiar with the library. The developer also provides extensive documentation, which should help new users understand the code better.

You can find the ready-to-implement library in the original thread. So if you are looking for some brand new UI concepts for your application, head over there to give it a shot.
