SideControl Gains New Powers through Xposed

You may recall that a little over a month ago, we first talked about SideCuts by XDA Forum Member Jawomo. SideCuts offered quite a different take on the traditional sidebar launcher, by allowing the user to define gestures that can be launched from predetermined areas. The app was later renamed SideControl, and at around that time, it gained better rich notification support, as well as the ability to open sidebar apps in a floating window when XDA Senior Member zst123‘s HaloFloatingWindow Xposed Module is installed. Now, SideControl has gained some new powers thanks to several new Xposed controls.

SideControl now packs all of the same functionality as previous versions including custom gestures, but it adds quite a bit more by way of Xposed. Rooted users with Xposed installed are able to use SideControl to kill all running apps, kill the foreground app, take screenshots, access the power menu, control their media player, and more. The app can even function as a replacement for the Android navigation keys, and features useful macros such as kill app + screen off, and back key + screen off.

It’s exciting to see all the progress that SideControl has made in such a short time. Head over to the application thread to get started with the latest version.
