WP7-Like Gestures, Answer Your Phone With a Movement

XDA member Jaxbot presented a few months ago a great application for your Windows Mobile device, which was inspired in the WP7 gesture control to answer your phone with a movement of your hand. Using the ambient light sensor and g-sensor application, the device can detect a hand moving over the screen. Some of the features on this early release are: Wave to answer, wave to ignore, auto-lock when no light, turn to unlock, and shake to save.
The developer tested this app on the HTC Fuze but should work on other devices with same resolution, some users reported working ok on Leo.
You can find a video of it on the original thread. Please leave feed back.

[APP][Experimental] Windows Mobile 7-like gestures

Hi all.

Highly experimental app I’ve been working on. It basically uses the accelerometer and ambient light sensor to handle gesture events.

Current features:
– Wave to answer
– Wave to ignore
– Autolock when dark
– Turn to unlock
– Shake to save

It works well on my Fuze, but I’m not sure about other HTC devices.
Also, it needs the .NET Compact Framework.

Any feedback, let me know!

You can find more information in the application 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...
