Fingerprint Gestures, a new app from SuperThomasLab, allows smartphone users to use fingerprint sensor actions such as single taps, double taps or swipes. Available for free in the Google Play Store, the feature works well on any Android 6.0 device running Marshmallow or later with a fingerprint sensor. The app is designed for supporting only fingerprint sensors which have implemented Google’s fingerprint API.
The app allows on to use fingerprint sensor actions like single taps, double taps or swipes for controlling your Android smartphone. You may tap on the sensor to launch an app, swipe down on your fingerprint sensor to pull down the notification shade, or double tap the sensor to make the device sleep. You may choose from an array of other customizations as well, though some of the actions on the list require root.
The feature worked perfectly well on the Nexus 6P and there is every reason to assume it will be as fluid on other Android devices. It brings in many more customization options than the app created by XDA Developers. It would allow Android devices to use the fingerprint gestures found on Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL devices. This app of SuperThomasLab must be the perfect fit in your needs.
The fingerprint sensor will pull down the notification shade, tap on the sensor to launch an app of your liking and then double tap the sensor to put it in the sleep mode.
I would like to say that after using Fingerprint Gestures on the Nexus 6P for just a few hours, I was quite impressed with its fluidity and it also offers a lot of customization options which makes it further impressive. You must give it a try if you are searching for something more robust. The fingerprint Gestures works perfectly on any Android device running on Marshmallow. You must enjoy it.
