Edge Sense Plus adds new actions and functionality to HTC Edge Sense!
The available double squeeze gesture will be useful for all that often accidentally trigger the short squeeze,
what shouldn't happen that easily with the double squeeze gesture.
With the G-Sensor functionality you will be able to execute different actions depending on the current position of your device, whether it is flat, upright in your hand or in lanscape
That means, that Edge Sense Plus adds seven more additional squeeze gestures, so you have now 9 different squeeze gestures that you can use and customize.
But that is not all, if you use the Action per app action, you can define different actions depending in what app you currently are!
Additionally a sidebar will help you to access your favourite apps, recent apps and quicksettings from everywhere.
To add some more fun to your squeezes you can let play a custom sound that will be played when executing a squeeze gesture.
With the magisk system mod enabled you can perform actions while the screen is off.
It also unlocks additonal features like coloring the visual feedback.

Due system limitations it is not possible to execute squeeze actions without root while the screen is off.
In most cases you would want to open the camera while the sceeen is off, so the workaround would be to leave the long press squeeze gesture mapped to camera, and just let Edge Sense Plus control the short squeeze.
This app uses the Device Administrator permission.
You need to enable this permission to be able to use the “Lock Screen” action.
