A new flavor of the Trigger gesture launcher application is now available for download for the owners of Android devices, namely version 1.8.1.The software brings along a fix for Direct Dial Shortcut (requires new Calling permission), while also resolving a series of crash issues previously affecting the app.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Trigger is a highly personalized gesture launcher, providing users with access to various settings on the device, with simple gestures.
“Pressing the Trigger will call up a Gesture Field for you to draw your pre-created gestures. This will launch the pre-set action,” the app’s description reads.
“Pulling the Trigger in the north, east, south, west, northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest directions will activate a pre-set action. This is a quick-action and it can be set to any gesture.”
Users can move the Trigger to any location on the screen by pressing and holding the icon.
Moreover, users can also set the Trigger to be shown or hidden by the search key on handsets that feature one, or by the Notification Bar for Android phones without Search button.
The available gestures for the application include App Panel, Image Panel, Info Panel, Text Panel, NotePad Panel, and ClipBoard Panel.
However, users can also set it to launch specific applications or settings, such as Profiles, Vibrate Mode On, Vibrate Mode Off, Silent Mode On, Silent Mode Off, Wi-Fi On, Wi-Fi Off, Bluetooth On, Bluetooth Off, Data On, Data Off, and more.
There are two different flavors of the application available for download on Android devices running under OS flavor 2.2 or newer.
There’s Trigger Limited, which supports only six gestures, does not offer the option to change the Trigger Icon, and also features ads. It can be found on this page in the Google Play Store.
The full version of the software, however, does not feature these limitations, and can be downloaded via this link.
