Google Now Swipe Disabler repurposes that annoying swipe up from the bottom of your phone. If you're tired of having to press back twice when your scroll gets taken over by Google Now, then have Google Now Swipe Disabler do nothing! If you like the new voice search, but it takes too long to swipe up and press the mic icon, then tell it to go straight to voice search! You can have super quick access to your camera, or maybe you're always needing to do complicated mental math, now your calculator is just a convenient swipe away!
Next time you swipe, android will ask you to decide what to do. Choose Google Now Swipe Disabler and you're good to go. And all this with no (creepy) permissions!
With Google Now Swipe Disabler, you can let that swipe:
• Do nothing! Google Now Swipe Disabler's first priority is to get that annoying swipe gesture out of the way, so if you choose to do nothing, your swipes will- do nothing!
• Assign the gesture to any app- Make that Google Search gesture launch Bing! (Not that I have anything against Google...) You can also choose multiple apps to have a choice each time you swipe.
• Open your recent apps, go directly to voice search, simulate a home button press, or bring back the long-press search. If you want to do something that's not listed here, Google Now Swipe Disabler connects with Tasker to do anything imaginable!
• Shortcuts! Although it's still in beta, the shortcuts feature will let you assign the swipe to any app that supports standard shortcuts. For example, with Google Play Books, you could directly open a specific book, or instantly open up Google Translate to start listening.
To get a chance to try new features early, participate in the beta program!
