Old WM App LMT Launcher Ported To Android, Launch Commands With Gestures

That image on the right look familar? Back when the HTC HD2 was released, devs scrambled to write Windows Mobile applications that could utilize its multitouch screen. One of the more notable ones was LMT Launcher (we wrote about it several times), which allowed you to perform customizable actions, for example launching a program, using single- and multitouch gestures.

It turns out that, just like with CommMgrPro, one of LMT’s original devs, noname81, ported it to Android.

LMT is a tool for Android (tested on Evo3D/Sensation/HD2/DesireHD and more…) that launches a command when perform single touch or multitouch gestures on the screen (In any app/screen/etc.). You can connect basic and advanced commands to any gesture LMT supports.

One of the advantages of LMT, compared to similar “gesture launchers” on the Android Market, is that you can draw gestures on any screen, without the need for persistent icons that you have to tap before starting the gesture. This advantage, however, comes at a cost: You’ll need root access.

Also, if your device is not listed as one of the supported ones, you may have to experiment with setting different numbers for the input device. If you figured out the correct number, report it to the dev so he can include it in his original post. So, what are you waiting for? Get the app in the forum thread!
