HTC One M8 Motion Launch Gestures On Your Android Device With Knockr!

HTC One M8 is the current flagship with a stunning performance, RAM and many other stuff. It also brings a bunch of features including the motinon launch gesture, which lets user to quickly access  to apps without having the display enabled. This feature is now available for all Android device with this awesome app caleld Knockr!

As mentioned above, Knockr lets you to enter any app using gestures without having to turn the screen on.
There are four types of gestures:

  • Double Tap
  • Swipe up/down/sideways
  • Long press
  • Volume up (this will quickly open the camera)
You can obviously choose which app you want to open by these gestures above.

Unfortunately (and fortunately at the same time), Knockr doesn't require root but works ONLY on OLED displays (Moto X, AMOLED..etc.). Why? It's because OLED pixels automatically turns off when they turn black. If you don't have the OLED, don't be sad, I'm pretty sure the app will continue with development and make this possible on other devices as well.

App comes as a free app available on Google Play Store.
