Video: My Moves, awesome shortcut gesture app for N9 available at Nokia Store

| October 7, 2011 | 15 Replies


Here’s a pretty cool app for MeeGo-Harmattan. Now we know that swipe gestures are core to the experience in N9. This app adds more gestures, with multitouch support, you can open apps with gestures.

There are a range of gestures, and you can set which gesture opens what app. SANDST1 notes it will take some time to get used to – but when you do, it’s all quite elegant. It works anywhere in the system.

Check out

Cheers Glenn for the tip!

      woops, sorry. Darn copy paste going wrong in mac. Had to remove gmail from mail app as it kept opening and freezing. Hmm.

      Cheers. Will sort now.

      Also, it looks pretty cool. My only suggestion to him is to describe the gestures as “thumb and forefinger” or “thumb and two fingers” as shown in his video. Unless of course it is OK to swipe with two or three fingers.

        you can reach the developer of this app, he is very friendly.

      • The app is not limited to thumb & forefinger. If you want, you can use e.g. middle&index finger 🙂

        The most important point is just to keep your fingers together while swiping, that’ll make the gesture easier to recognize because drawing with fingers together tends to be more stable.

          Or toes even. I’ll use my nose and ear and later try some other things too, when I’m alone.

  • larryg968

    This is one on the most useful applications i have ever seen.

    Swipe UI has so much potential.

    Is it possible for these gestures to be corporated in games/ applications and have predetermined functions. For example, two finger swipe down reloads a page or someting. That would be cool.
