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.

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

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.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
