With the latest iPhone X, Apple introduced a buttonless design that shocked its buyers. But without a home button, navigation within iOS 11 had to change to accommodate the new model, therefore Apple had no other chance but to create gestures to perform the actions that the home button once executed. The biggest new gesture is none other than swipe-to-go-home and I know that some of you think that this functionality could also be great on Android.
You can actually enjoy iPhone-like Swipe to Go Gesture on Android too and the easiest way to get not only the swipe-to-go-home gesture, but also various other useful features, is with the help of an app called All in One Gestures.
All in one Gestures also gives you the chance to hide soft keys, and control your device with simple gestures. All you must do is to swipe your finger across the screen, and the action you want will be performed in no time.
The app that I am telling you about is free, but if you want, you can purchase the ad-free version for $1.90 and you’ll definitely gest the best.
How to enjoy iPhone-like Swipe to Go Gesture on Android:
- For the start, grab the All in one Gestures app;
