Hello everybody,

I want to provide user with a way to control my application then it is in background. I implemented special hidden area in a corner via overlay. But such solution has lots of restrictions: only 2 possible actions for each hidden area (one for regular touch and other for long press), other applications use the same behavior (area can be overlapped) etc.

While searching for alternatives I found the AGS application here.This application uses gesture and it catches them everywhere on the screen.

AFAIK it is impossible to do with overlay, Am I right? Any ideas how to implement such behavior?
