Dug up another feature via tribal knowledge among the Product Ambassadors around motion gestures for the Moto X Pure Edition (PE). Oddly enough you won't find either of these in any of your settings menus so you just have to be aware that they exist. So what are they? Two gestures that I actually find really useful involving the flashlight and camera functions. Let's take a look at how they work.
Lights, Camera, Action
First up the camera, as of late there have been several different approaches on how to bring up an Android device's camera quickly so users can capture that spontaneous special moment. Each have their own twist, for this device it is motion based. Simply twist your wrist twice and the Moto X PE will vibrate and bring the native camera app on screen. Twist, point, touch the screen and image captured. Done.
Equally useful is the gesture motion to activate the native flashlight function. The Moto X PE leverages a chopping action to bypass the normal multi-step process of engaging the flashlight, and let's face it when you need a flashlight it is urgent! (think Scooby Doo) As illustrated in the video this a very simple operation to engage.
Check them both out, amaze your friend and get the most out of your device!
