Xtended NavBar Supercharges Your On-Screen Navigation Bar using Xposed
On-screen navigation buttons undoubtedly have their pros and cons. While many don’t care for the lack of true haptic feedback or “wasted” screen real estate, many others favor the sleek lines and versatility only possible with on-screen buttons. For those of us who happen to fall in the latter category, it’s hard to go back to a device with hardware buttons–but that’s not to say that on-screen keys can’t be made even better!
XDA Senior Member fmaster1 recently released a new Xposed module called Xtended NavBar. And as you would expect from its name, it aims to make your software navigation bar even more versatile. With this module enabled, you can swipe from the edges to change to your music player or access quick settings, and you can swipe back to return to the standard navigation keys.
The module itself should work on any Android 4.3 and 4.4 devices with Xposed framework installed, and should even be compatible with some other navigation bar customization modules. You can learn more by heading over to the module thread.
