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

These moments tell your story (...)[but] taking more pictures and videos makes it harder to relieve memories due to the sheer volume”. This is why they are revamping Google Photos and centering it around 3 big ideas: Creating a home for all photos and videos that is...
VP of Engineering Jen Fitzpatrick began talking about what Google is doing to help “the next billion” come online. More and more people are getting their first smartphone, and for many people this first phone will be their first computer. The majority of the next billion will be Android users and they “want to remove the barriers of smartphone adoption”. While there are huge displays of phones on sale, not all are able to run the latest and greatest...
