One of the functions of experimental iOS 14 drew a lot of attention when it came out the first beta: the double tap on the back side of the iPhone to perform actions. And with an app we can also have it in Android: running screenshots, the display is turned off, and a lot more doing a ‘double-tap’.
The customization of Android has no end, we already know this: a mobile phone with this system you can, almost literally, be another’s very different. Even on an iPhone, always saving the distances: it is possible to imitate the appearance, some apps and to mimic functions that are not on Android. As is the case of the ‘double-tap’, an option that Apple introduced in tests with the beta version of iOS 14. Do you want to try it? Tap, Tap makes it possible.
Run actions on your mobile phone with a double tap from behind
By before a phone is sensitive to touch, pressure, you can capture an image, adjust the brightness of the screen after analyzing the lighting environment and to execute actions with voice. This is obvious since the majority of sensors are directed to the face of the mobile phone with which the user interactsbut it is also possible to convert the rear of the phone in a sensitive area. Even though it lacked of sensors: the accelerometers can pick up the vibrations of the finishing touches.
The application of which you speak is called Tap, Tap, it is currently in alpha state of development and you still can’t be found in Google Play: you’ll have to access your installation from an APK file. And one last drawback: Tap, Tap at the moment, is English.
As expected of the application, once installed on the mobile (you will need to give permission to accessibility) registers the touches on the back to react to the double click. Do not exert a lot of force since the app is not sensitive enough: two hits and jumps Google Assistantfor example. Or other functions, as perform a screen capture, turn on the flashlight, launching an application or to interact with Tasker: Tap, Tap … is very customizable. Not only that, Tap, Tap allows you to apply filters so that the double tap does not work in which situations, such as when the screen is off or during a call. Also can be customized.
Despite the fact that it is still in development is surprising how well it works: if you were doing wishing to implement a gesture universal to your Android because you can add it with a Tap,Tap. Is in alpha state, remember: maybe your phone is still not working as it should.
