Moto gestures with 3rd party launcher

2020-10-14, 18:58 PM

I'm a big Nova fan and have been for years. Is anyone using Nova Prime (or any 3rd party launcher) and successfully getting the Moto gestures to work? I'm having to use the 3 button to switch apps, home, and back. 

 

On another note, I have the wrist twist activating the camera, but the chopping action to activate the flashlight seems like it would be awful hard on the hinges. And the face recognition is tempermental.

Re:Moto gestures with 3rd party launcher

I'd like to put Nova launcher. Moto launcher does not display badge numbers (e.g.: how many unread emails are there or how meany unread text messages). 

 

However, if Moto launcher is uniquely designed to handle two screens (internal and external) and other launchers are not - my question is if Moto launcher should be even attempted to be replaced by any other launcher? How would that affect Moto external screen handling?

 

Are there any experiences with that?

 

Cheers,

 

Alex

I'm using Nova Launcher and it doesn't affect the external screen functionality at all. I just can't get screen gestures to work on the internal screen such as "back", "home", and opening recent apps.

Thanks for info re: Nova on Razr 5G.  I've installed Nova now, restored my highly customized layout - and haven't look back. 

 

Cheers,

No, Moto gestures do not work.  If not known: there is a message in Nova settings explaining that currently Android 10  gestures are not compatible and would not work correctly n any 3rd party launcher. I would  expect Moto gestures to fall into the same category. It is quite a compromise, but I missed functionality offered by Nova (app badges, larger grid sizes, widget and app positions, screen transitions,  etc.) that Moto launcher simply does not have.  I guess one must chose according to higher needs....

 

Cheers,
