Volume Controller with swipe
« on: August 30, 2013, 06:36:29 PM »
"K_Hismoom" over at XDA wrote an app for the Asteroid Smart that extends functionality.

I've changed the layout a bit and implemented swipe up/down gestures to increase/decrease volume. You can also touch anywhere on the screen to change the slider.

This mod is currently under development and will likely change, adding or changing functions.

 i like your work.  Can you tie this to the volume button on the left so I can get access no matter what I have up.

Hi, for that you would need the excellent app AsteroidTweaker that you can find here.

I am currently working on adding a settings page to the app so that you can customize the swipe direction (horizontal/vertical), timeout until the app closes and enable/disable the feature to touch anywhere to change the volume slider.

Here's a new version of my volume control app.
It now includes persistent settings to customize its behavior.

Default behavior is:
- vertical swipe for volume change
- no touch anywhere to change slider
- timeout of 3 seconds until it closes

It also includes experimental support for VOLUME_MUTE, VOLUME_UP and VOLUME_DOWN buttons via HID (buttons connected via USB, e.g. a keyboard). Of course these button presses are only handled when the app is running in the foreground.

Have fun with it.

Hey guys, here's an improved and extended version of my volume control app.

It's functions now are:
- Swipe horizontal and/or vertical to change volume
- Touch anywhere to change volume slider
- Pinch to change volume
- Ramp up volume when unmuting
- UNIKA and HID volume up/down/mute button support

You can configure and enable or disable each and every function. Additionally you can set up a minimum distance delta for detecting a swipe gesture, a custom timeout value before closing the app, the ramp up delay and the pinch sensitivity.

I recommend wiping the app's data before installing the new version.

Many thanks to donaldta over on XDA for his invaluable help in testing and improving the app.

Good day! Can you show the video to the work of this utility? I think is not correct working on asteroid firmware 2.1.3 (rus).

Hey K_Hismoom,

Would you be open to posting the source for this project, I'd love to tinker with it a little... I didn't know if you had it protected and if I tried to unpackage it using apktool or something would screw with things.

If you'd rather not, I understand, I just wanted to play around with it a little.

Thanks H_Hismoom for the AsteroidTweaker!!! It works great on my Smart 2.1.5.!  I only had one qwestion. How work the Music at Startup Tweak? Does it play always the last source?
