  1. Neil says:

    Opening apps from the lock screen seems like both a good thing and a bad thing… any way to ignore gestures from the lock screen and implement it as a user option (“Disable lock screen gestures”)?

    • sandst1 says:

      Yes, it should be possible to implement. Do you mean opening apps from the lock screen is a bad thing from a security pov?

      • Neil says:

        I hadn’t really considered it from a security point of view, more from a general annoyance point of view – several times the lock screen has been activated while the device is in my pocket (by of accidental double taps) and while unlikely I’d hate it to then be possible to start an app with an accidental gesture.

        Some may find lock-screen gesture support useful, but having the option to disable such behaviour is probably worth adding, particularly if it’s relatively trivial.

      Aaaa, now i see. Thanks for the pointer, going to the todo list! : )

    • I would actually be interested in replacing the unlock gesture itself 🙂

      I love double tap + drag screen away gesture, but the “butt touch detection” should really work better. Maybe your neural network algorithms could be better doing this job and you could replace exactly that part.

      I’d buy My Moves instantly then 🙂

      • sandst1 says:

        That’d be cool, but unfortunately it can’t be implemented.

        When the screen is off, the touch screen driver doesn’t send any touch events. The double-tap seems to be implemented in the driver itself, so it’s pretty much impossible to override that one..

    Great work! I’m getting my N9 this week, I’ll test it out as soon as I can. 🙂

    I see that you’re using neural networks in this version. (I believe it was a simple statistical similarity measure in the first version no?) I also read that you had some trouble getting the user-configurable gestures working reliably. Have you considered using hidden Markov models? They’re really ideal for this type of pattern recognition where the temporal dimension is essential to the pattern.

    • sandst1 says:

      Thanks! : )

      Yeah, the first one was just a normalization and a Pearson correlation. Single-touch ones were working but hopes weren’t really up for getting any of the multi-touch gestures working properly.

      Hmm. Markov models could indeed be a better option than having a neural network, because currently i have to do a bit of temporal normalization as well, and that’s not the most robust thing in the world. Thanks : )

  4. Cool app!

    I particularly like it the way you shown it – for launching clock (for the alarm) on gesture.

    One thing: for some reason I cannot make Search started on gesture. That would make MyMoves + search a universal quick launcher: gesture + type 1-2 letters and start anythng!

    • sandst1 says:

      Hmm. Good point about the Search. Currently I’m parsing the .desktop files which are shown in the app grid, so perhaps the Search has a bit different format or something. I’ll look into that. Thanks!
