Find Your Inner Jedi Powers With Prox Lite for Android
Let’s face it: Star Wars is cool. Unquestionably, one of the coolest aspects of the movie is the use of The Force to do things without directly doing them. Now, thanks to XDA forum member SemperGumbee, you can pretend to have the same types of power with your Android phone.
Using your proximity sensor and accelerometer, Prox Lite allows you to return to home, access your notification drawer, launch the phone dialer, and launch your browser without even touching your phone’s screen or buttons. In the words of the developer:
Prox makes use of the phone’s proximity sensor and accelerometer to initiate an action. Prox Lite has 4 actions:
*Flat – Emulate home button
*Toward – Expand and contract notification panel
*Left – Launch phone dialer
*Right – Launch browser (google.com)
All you have to do is turn on the service through the app and then tilt the phone in the direction you are trying to activate the action for and then pass your hand over the proximity sensor and it will activate the action for that direction.
You can amaze your friends, and feel like a Jedi. Imagine the look on your friend’s faces when you do things without even touching the phone itself.
If you’re feeling like you want to play some mind tricks on your friends, be sure to continue on to the application thread!
