Prox is a service that allows you to control certain aspects of your phone by tilting and swiping your hand over the proximity sensor on your phone. I plan on working on this heavily throughout the summer to make it one on the must have applications for Android. I am currently attending Appalachian State University going for a bachelor’s in computer science. I am 26 and happily married. I am currently the only person working on this so it will take me some time to add new features and squash bugs, but I am passionate about this idea and application.
Info about updates will be posted here as the updates roll out:
v1.0: Initial release
v1.01: Bug fixes mainly
v1.02: New action – play tone. This may seem little more than a novelty, but I believe someone with enough imagination can make this a very cool feature. Download apps off the market to make your own ringtones and then use your imagination to put this to work 😛
v1.03: Disable loadout switcher. Enable a hold amount to cut down on unintentional gestures (up to 2 seconds hold time). Lots of bug fixes and performance improvements. Small UI overhaul 🙂
v1.03.1: Fixed the disable vibrate feature.
v1.04: New action: turn screen off (requires administrative permissions)
v1.05: New Loadout: Timer Loadout 🙂
v1.05.1: Fixed force close issue with the timer loadout. Changed the layout a little to make it look better.
Next Version: Launch shortcuts, more bug fixes…
Way in the future: A cool game using the accelerometer and proximity sensor (it will be great 🙂 that you can launch from the service. I have a great idea that I think users will really enjoy 🙂
