Gesture control on your smartphone and the applications that make it possible for you

Modern smartphones usually do not have any buttons on their front. Instead, gesture control is used for convenient operation. The latest iPhones have a default gesture control, while in Android models the user can freely choose how he will use his phone.

What is gesture control?

Controlling the phone with gestures should first of all be very intuitive, so that the user can choose the right option in the easiest way. The simplest gestures are, for example, a swipe from the left edge of the screen to go back to the last opened tab, and from the right to go to the next one. For example, holding an icon longer often allows it to run faster.

Gesture control applications:

If your smartphone is not operated with gestures, you can change it very easily. Just use the free applications. However, you have to remember that using most of them requires you to root your phone, which is a risky activity and you need to be aware of its consequences..
