Hello ColorOs Family,

How are all of you? I hope you all having a great time in the community.  

In this article, I am going to discuss an open-source app named  Tap, Tap app that brings double back tap gestures to any ARMv8 device running Android Nougat and later.


What is Tap, Tap?

Tap, Tap is a port of the double-tap on the back of the device gesture from Android 11 to any Android 7.0+ device. It allows you to use the gesture to launch apps, control the device (including pressing the home, back, and recent buttons), take a screenshot, toggle the flashlight, open your assistant, and more. Using "gates", you're able to block the gesture from working in scenarios such as when the screen is off when you're on a call when an app is open, and more. It uses an accessibility service to run these tasks and stay running in the background.

Tap, Tap uses the same machine learning code and TensorFlow models from the Android 11 builds with the gesture, with code directly lifted from SystemUIGoogle where needed. Machine learning allows the gesture to be more accurately detected and reduces the chance of accidental interactions.


XDA Forums Recognized Developer Quinny899 has released a new open-source app called ‘Tap, Tap’. It brings double back tap gestures to any ARMv8 device running Android Nougat and later.



The app comes with a very simple interface that is easily understood able by users.



This option lets you calibrate the device for tap actions. There are two options there, first one is device size in which there are three options there - largest, medium & smallest. Another is Sensitivity - Change the sensitivity of the gestures by adjusting now much force is filtered out as noise. Lower sensitivity means the gestures will be harder to do on most devices, whereas a higher sensitivity is more prone to false detection, Default is exactly in the middle.


Double Tap Actions

Double-Tap actions let you perform some actions like launching Assistant, camera, or an app of your choice, taking a screenshot, or toggling a flashlight. Also can add new actions by taping the buttons and add actions according to your preference.

Gates are the situations that can block the gestures from running any actions. In order for any actions to be run, all have to enable gates must be open. There is a list of gates available.



There are some advanced features there in the app like Auto-restart service, custom sensitivity, and legacy wake device method which users can test according to their preference.


In Beta testing phase

Tap, Tap is currently in beta and maybe slightly buggy. Stay tuned for new features and bug fixes.
