Assistive Zoom Enables One-Finger Zoom Gesture
While extremely intuitive and innovative, the pinch-zoom gesture can be difficult at times and for certain people. Be it due to a user’s physical limitations or one-handed device operation, the gesture isn’t always the most convenient. And while Google Maps has incorporated an alternative zoom gesture for some time, there isn’t always a good alternative gesture for application zoom gesture functionality in every app.
XDA Senior Member jerryfan2000 aims to change this with Assistive Zoom. As you can gather from the app’s title, Assistive Zoom assists users in sending the pinch-zoom gesture signal from just single-finger operation. To make the application to be useful to a wide range of users, Assistive Zoom is highly configurable in sensitivity, trigger options, and zoom options.
