Open Gestures Goes Beta
If you are looking for a cool Android home screen replacement, we recommend checking out Open Gestures by Hollowire. It’s a great alternative to your basic 3 screen setup without being too much of a change. While it looks like the out-of-box experience you get with Android, it has some very handy, and clever features hiding away.
Assign a “gesture” to your most commonly used apps or contacts. Draw an “M” on your screen and have it load the Android Market. Draw a heart shape and have it dial your wife or girlfriend. You can handpick the gestures and modify them later if you need. As you’ll see in the vide below, the app is very forgiving, meaning you don’t have to be 100% precise each time you draw out a letter.
The other great feature tucked away is the ability to quickly toggle settings like WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and more. Simply swipe your finger upwards in an “I” shape and you get a list of options to change.
