Re: What is Side sense?

Hello,

If we talk about Side sense. It is a new user-friendly user interface which uses Artificial intelligence to produce simply convenient access to your favourite apps in a manner. When you double tap at anyplace on either of the edges of your device. It’ll know your next move from its learning from frequency, time and placement habits, Side scene also offers simple one-handed operation and its remove the necessity of scrolling up and down It also has an inbuilt AI which evolves to tell about your preference and what you really want.

Re: What is Side sense?

@Yekollu  what issues are you having with it? I actually like having a list of my frequently used apps and the notification panel button easily accessible from every screen.

Re: What is Side sense?

Very good idea, but in real life it gives so many false activations that it had to be turned off. It needs to be modifed. I suggest using the built-in accelerometer to highlight the double tap event. The movement of the phone during the real tap-tap is typical and it can be more accurately identified without false activations. Without this, the phone opens the side menu even if you just hold the phone in your hands. And false positives exceed all imaginable limits.

A similar problem with the side slide. And it also needs to be improved. Simply shifting the phone from one hand to the other, gives false activation of this function, too.  I don't see any solutions for this.
