G-Trigger – launch apps by shaking your phone


G-Trigger is a G-Sensor based shake detector application. It allows one to start an application on shaking your HTC Touch Diamond and Pro in a particular direction.

Currently supported shaking directions:

  • Horizontally
    • Left to right
    • Right to left
  • Vertically
    • Top to bottom
    • Bottom to top
  • Front & Back
    • Front to back
    • Back to front

The application runs as a service, which should prevent it from suddenly stopping working due to the 32 process Windows Mobile limit.

It has been tested on the HTC Touch Diamond but should work on other devices.  The developer is hoping to extend the application to send specific keys when specific applications are in the foreground, which should allow even more control options.
