❕ This feature requires Niagara Pro and a phone that runs at least Android 9. We also developed a workaround that lets you use the feature on older, rooted phones; more on that here.

Judging by the amount of requests this feature got, the lock screen gesture is the highlight of v0.31. It lets you turn off the screen quickly by double tapping on the alphabet (or on the left side of the screen).

To enable the quick lock gesture, go to:

Niagara Launcher’s settings > Features > Quick lock gesture

There is not really much more to say, enjoy the new alpha version of Niagara Launcher, here’s the full changelog (spoiler: we did a lot of tweaking) and download link of the alpha. It will be rolled out on Google Play in approximately one week, in August 2020.

Thanks for reading 😀
