I have just published a new little app on Chum: Edge Swipe Control
This small tool registers itself as a Settings page, and brings a top menu Button.
You can use the Settings part to configure the “Peekfilter Boundary Width”, i.e. the part of the screen that is handled by the OS as an “Edge Swipe”.
The Button can do the same (long press), but its main purpose is to quickly disable and enable the edge detection completely.
Can be useful for games or other apps where reaching the edge of the screen might trigger an unwanted “send to background” action.
Inspired by the Tips and tricks section on the setting.
Preview/Alpha versions sometimes at chum-testing
Source code, issue tracking etc is here.
