How to Use HTC Motion Launch Gesture App on any Android device

Have you heard about HTC’s Motion Launch Gesture app? Its purpose is to give you the chance to interact with your Android phone while the display is still off. However, this feature is only compatible by default with the HTC One M9 for the moment. In case of owning this device, I think that you can find it really useful and there is even a way of using it on other Android devices as well.

Well, the HTC Motion Launch Gesture feature combines the Gesture and Motion sensors into providing unique and useful functions like starting some apps or services, starting the camera to capture a special moment, unlocking screen with double tap and lots more.

In order to use these features you need to turn on Gestures from Settings and to remember a few things about HTC Motion Launch; to be more precise, it allows you to double tap the screen to wake, to swipe down to turn on the voice dialing without having to unlock the screen, to pick up your phone into Landscape orientation and then press the volume button to open HTC camera app when screen is off and not only.
