Stop Using The Hardware Keys on Your Android Capable HD2

Ahh… the HD2. Such a versatile phone, capable of such a wide array of possibilities. If you thought that things for this device couldn’t get any better, you may want to check out what XDA member windroidHD made for us. The dev was tired of using the hardware buttons on the HD2 to go back, home and such, so he decided to create an app to get rid of the need of using them. zMooth allows you to use gestures in order to perform the same functions as these 4 buttons. The app basically becomes a small square in the bottom of the screen. In there, you simply swipe your finger in a certain way, and it will perform the action assigned to that particular hardware button.

If this looks interesting, please head over to the thread and install the app. Please leave any feedback regarding bugs and suggestions.

Just finished publishing zMooth gesture app in android market, it will allow you to use gestures to mimic back, home and menu hardware keys.

I wrote this app to be unobtrusive by using minimum amount of screen space but at the same time be very easy and intuitive to use. If you use for couple of days you will understand how easy it is to use.

You can find more information in the original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
