How many touches and clicks you have made on your phone every day? How much time you have spent on switching apps? How many useless operations, which should be saved, cost your PRECIOUS time?

Be Simple!

I have created ES File Explorer all free versions from 2009-2015, after that, I created fooView.

fooView - Float Viewer is a magic floating button. It's a system enhancement tool to help you access your favorite websites, apps, games, files, music, photos, videos, and screen contents by a gesture using one hand. 

Please check the video.

fooView will utilize the internal power of your smart phones using machine learning techniques, save 80% of your operations, let everything be simple. 

An easy gesture can do what?
·A crop for a quick screenshot, recognized automatically, share, and search?
·A swipe to preview files?
·An easy gesture to replace all the navigation physical keys?
·A long press gesture to switch and manage apps quickly?


One hand to operate, only a gesture.
·Crop a word to translate, save, share to your messenger...
·Crop a name such as in videos to search in multiple search engines
·Crop an image such as in games to screenshot (Android 5.0+), search, and share to social network or photos community...
·Crop a number to dial or check where it's from
·Crop an address to check how to route in maps
·Swipe for Back, Swipe long for Home, protecting physical keys
·Swipe up to Files/Weather/News or Floating Window
·Swipe down to Recent List/Notification
·Swipe in File to preview
·Long press to switch/manage apps
·Small package size
·Floating browser. Different from others, it can be floating
·Full-featured floating files (images, music, videos, documents) manager for both local and network
·App manager
·Built-in viewers(such as pdf), players and downloader
·Multiple search engine...
·Gesture input
·Text recognition
·Regional screenshot and screen recorder(some requires Android 5.0+)
·Apps/webs are sorted automatically for quick search! Self-learn with more use
·Texts/Gestures are recognized
·Several modes to personalize
·Easy to learn. Inbuilt Guide, Demo Video, and Game to help you step in the world
·I'm feeling Lucky

Special Note
When you set gesture for locking screen or grant the device administrator permission from settings manually to avoid this app being killed by the system, this app uses the device administration API, and you need disable the permission before uninstallation. It's required by the system.

How fooView help the disabled users with Accessibility Services?
1) For visually impaired users, you can select words or images from the screen using fooView and enlarge it for a better readability.
2) For physical disabilities, fooView provides powerful single hand features, you can use one hand to operate the phone, switch apps easily, replacing the navigation hard keys, which can hardly be controlled by one hand.
3) Some features are in the development.

Why fooView ask Read_Phone_State permission?
This permission is usually for reading IMEI code for your device by many apps. But fooView won't read IMEI according to GDPR. fooView uses this permission to judge the phone in call state, so that when the call is incoming, fooView will stop music play and minimize the floating window to avoid overlaying.

Reviews From google play store

Very easy to customize and does everything it says. or does take a minute to see and use all the features, but it is a great alternative to use if you don't have an edge phone and want to use an app that you can slide or tap open from the screen edge. I love being able to select what I screenshot, and copying text in an image is so easy and useful. I use this app on every phone and tablet I use.

Hello, been using this app for a year i think. It is the best app i came across. I can't use my phone without it anymore! Everything i need is here, but after i updated my phone to Android 10, copying text no longer copies to clipboard (copying normally not with fooview). It's kinda annoying me a little bit. I know it's a new Android 10 privacy feature that doesn't let background apps access the clipboard. I'm wondering if there's anything you guys can do (like additional permission requests) Ty

This app does so many things so well. Even the browser is better than Chrome and Firefox. The gesture shortcuts are amazing. I barely use all of the features but it's become one of the first things I install on my phone. Great work Dev.

Extremely customizable quick control and automation app. Especially nice for recognizing text from any screen in Android and quick pasting/sharing it between apps. There is a learning curve, like with all powerful apps. Look up details on XDA thread, the author is very responsive.

attention before download...downloading problem{after download 90-99% it shows me Fail to dowland}..I am woried about its security system... audio player has some bug like sometime i can't play next song automatically, suffle Doesn't work at all...i ha e rooted my phone for Developer user, but there is no sprcial benefit, like it Doesn't support to boot into developer mode. It is almost’s sad.add phonebook,call,better editor etc like a mini phone,{better&fast installer,apk manager}

What an awesome app. Everything i need, is in this app! I guess this is the best android app so far. Keep up the good job developer! 👍👍👍👍✨✨✨✨ A small request. Im using a tab. Can you make an option to easily hide its browser while im trying to switch to another apps? Or just let it floating only by its icon would be cool. So whenever im trying to switching back, im just simply tap on its floating icon.

I use this app constantly. The features are brilliant. Between the the shortcuts from the floating icon to the screen capture feature, it is so useful. I use the single-tap gesture on the floating icon with Sesame Shortcuts, so I can then type in the name and open any app. It makes multi-tasking a doddle. The pull down gesture with the notification shade really helps with my giant phone. 😊 The support is great, too, as they were quick to respond and very helpful.

Excellent app. As expected, saves a lot of time and clicks. All the best Developer 👍

For the first time i am giving this app a 1 star... Because i am unable to copy any text by dragging the icon....that really sucks...... Is this happening because the phone has been upgraded to Android 10.

It's quite radical there's such a minimal GUI can do so many features and I am features like for instance screen recording at 2K! My problem is that there's so many gestures do you have to remember you can't necessarily see a menu that is got a little bit of a learning curve for me however at the same time if you can memorize those gestures and how to activate all the features by memory I can't imagine a faster way to do anything and I mean many many sayings all in a little circle so convenient!

Absolutely Great work guys, this is the best of its kind for me, u guys killed alot of birds with this stone, kudos👍, a small suggestion, could you make the storage info display how much storage is left rather than how much used. Thanks for this great app

Outstanding app! I found this while looking for an app that would let me display a small bar for controlling Google play music over the top edge of the Waze app, so I could control my music while driving and using Waze without swiping or fumbling around. Now one tap on my Foo circle puts that music widget bar there just like I wanted, but it does soooo much more too! At first I thought it was just another gimmicky pop up launcher. Not even close! Watch the video and give it a try!

This is a great app, but I have a little problem when I press its translate button, normally Google translate pop-up should appear alone, but it pops up another applications main window on screen, which irritates me, I suspected from Google translate app and used its translate balloon instead, but with it, that sticky window does not come along, this program is great, I recommend all, that prob is not big deal maybe stg wrong on my phone but nevertheless I wanted to report it

Great app, in particular the floating icon. Please add more features using intermediate positions.

Stellar app with a huge flaw. When I go to add apps to the App Switcher, they're sorted by when they were installed instead of alphabetically. This makes it incredibly difficult to find the app your looking to pin (especially if you have several hundred installed, like me). They should also be smaller icons instead of a large list, imho (or at least settings available somewhere to change it).

Please, streamline performance in the music and video players. The music stops randomly and does not work well with headset remote controls. The playlist takes forever to load, and many other niffty bugs in the music player. Also, I wish toggling between landscape and portrait viewing in the video player was more intuitive.

It's unbelievable, the way this app solves my lots of heavy work with in few minutes is unbelievable and magical, thank you soooooo much to this app developer's,plz develop iOS version

Just great and easy, but my system booster keep on killing it.

Was working well on Android 5 (Lollipop) but after Google updated their OS, am having problem making it work well on Android 6, 7, and 8. It always turn off automatically and I always have to restart it.

OMG! No WONDER it's SO AMAZING! ES is AWESOME!🏆You're KING 👑 of all Dev's! I've had FV for many years, NO app I've EVER found even comes CLOSE!🏆 There's a slight learning curve, took awhile, but after that, if you have FooVoo, you already have THE BEST! If you want a fancy launcher that's a pain in the a** but looks soo good, just use FooVoo for almost EVERYTHING ELSE! Started with Note Edge (4) & now on Note 9, all this is missing is the s pen & Edge lighting! The 💣💥‼THANK YOU‼⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❣

please tell me how to customize the features of this app. Half the features I don't want to use and I want to turn them off. How do I do that? I only want this to capture text (text on picture) and copy/paste/translate that text. I do not want to use the other gesture controls like back, home, app switch etc. How do I disable the things I don't want? Uninstalling for now. Very troublesome to use. For some reason when I give it accessibility permission it shows screen cast icon on noti bar..

It's a great app really. I love it so much but how do i get it to run parmanently without being killed by memory clean apps? How do i add it to "whitelist?" I hate it when the app disappears from my screen. Please i need help now!

This app is amazing with the things it can do. Makes it so easy to capture- download images and texts , copy, past search, translste things. I love this app. Thank you!

It's Outstanding! I loved all the features built into the app, but there are a few bugs - When I restart my phone the pinned apps in the float icon are gonna reset & I've to pin all of 'em again, do fix it please.

Wht is wrong with the app It keeps on asking me storage access even after granting it I am fed up

Ad free application, very powerful. Little improvement needed. Floating button shall be able to move anywhere in screen

You need to experience by yourself how awesome this app is ... and above all the app doesn't sell ADs ... highly recommended ... only thing i want is i want any of one circle list app in rotation. Rest Good job

doesn't work, had to downgrade to a very old version for it to actually work.

Please sir add youtube shortcut and improve screenshot quality and improve copy text feature more accurate🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

This is by far the best app in playstore, it's like an OS on its own, it does everything (exaggerated though) but almost everything. I just love it

best app i ever used,thnks alot👏 but i only hv one question not sure if its bcuz of the app nd mayb u can solve it or its just a stupid android prblm,i hv oppo f9 pro nd always i have to turn the two options ON for the footview accessibilty tht i can b allow to use the full screenshot nd text select !!!!

Excellent app this app will make you master of ur mobile. Specially i loved customised task 😍 but from previous updates float window and float icon is not seen on lock screen plz fix it

Nothing word for this app. It's give new experience of using phone Like a professional. It's multitasking feature Is very nice and customization features give experience of a coder we create that done automatically. Thanks for make thia type of app. ❤️ ❤️

Great multipurpose app but with current version am experiencing a difficulty when I tried to save screenshot and other file

Great app thinking outside of the box. This app uses Android draw over screen on top of other apps running

screen recording is very glitchy.. other things are perfect.. i request you to fix it please

This is the best app for assistive touch android in the store✌🏾. Really so good easy and funny, i like it

Perfect. Personally I think developers have to make their own phone system. It's awesome app.100 stars for you guys.

At start it detects numbers , msg but afyer some time it doesnt n only captures screen.. Pls fix this.. else i wud give 5 star

Plz edit and save option on note 2- when i play a song from file manager, why fooview music player popup with fv home screen,,, If only fooview music player show, it will be very helpfull

What an app! I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of all the possibilities!!

Super app and heavily costomisable.

Its good but please add more features and change the design of icon of fooview

This is an exploitation app very usful it is like having a windows 10 or OS Mac teriffic

There should be the facility for video replayer and loop.

just bloody brilliant, just so much this app actually offers

Although it's kind of difficult to get used to,once you get used to it, you'll discover a lot of functions you never dreamed possible in one app. App switcher,Browser, File manager, Music player, Video player, Picture viewer, PDF viewer, Clipboard,Screenshot, Screen recorder, Copy and translate, and lots more. It simply simplifies the work of navigating on android. I was kind of surprised that i didn't know about this app from the former developer of my favourite file explorer, ES File explorer.

Literally the best app I've ever seen and I've seen many. With this app I don't need Navigation bar, Browser, File Manager, Gallery, Music and Video Player, etc. I wonder when will I stop finding out what else I can do with this app. Functionality seems endless. I feel like I don't even need a Launcher or an App Drawer. I can do everything from this simple easy-to-use app bubble. This is absolutely incredible. Thank you for this amazing app you bestowed upon us.

Great app with so many functions.... Thumbs up

Sensational, it's been very long time since I installed such a useful app and a well thought out and extremely well executed app as well! Very rare to install an app THAT EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS ALREADY THERE, and even better, it's been done with lots more functionalities than yiu would have thought yiu needed but that are EXTREMELY PRACTICAL! Incredible time saver and "CLICK SAVER" you can always do traditional actions in half the clicks and time! killer app!

Everything this app does is so useful it's honestly is incredibly ridiculously to me that google hasn't just added it to android stock and written the developers a fat check. I've had it installed for roughly 6 months and It works flawlessly everytime is barely noticeable when it should be and completely easy to use and obviously visible when it should be... I dont know how to sell how useful this app is in 500 words. It's kinda ridiculous that it's free... I feel kinda bad haha. Just try it !

One of the best apps maximizing phone abilities.

The best app, all features you can ever want

It beats things I saw in the early 2009ish iPhone jailbreak tweak cydia golden age. That means it's intuitive to the core, but be patient for the learning curve is greatly rewarded. For a free, amazingly practical, in an intuitively genius way, completely add free, seemingly able to intigrate amazingly, system mod. idk h e el el yeah amen

i cant imagine an android without fooview, guess am noy the only one who thinks so cause it seems to now be shipped with android 8 phones, its just the best app on android like ever, its features never seem to end, its UI is slick and amazing to top it all its adsless. the developers deserve a 20star rating... though i preferred the music and video player as a floating window, this new update combined it to the main activity, that makes it look like a bad update and yes I love this app

this app is a good idea but it's quite limited. only 3 circles are possible in the App Switcher. as of now the maximum is 3 circles. add more. group is shown in 3 rows and 3 columns. please add more columns and rows. this will make multi tasking even better. thank you

I think I'm in love! 😍😍😍 I've been using fooView for less than a day and I'm already pretty sure I can uninstall three of my old apps, including my clipboard manager, text grabber, and screenshot app! Can't wait to figure out what else this thing can do.

Awsome. It has features like samsung note series pen. Best app

Swift army knife it is ! There's nth this app can't do lmao ! Had a Note but switched to S10+ and i was missing Spen like crazy ! But this app feels like a virtual Spen of course you can't write with it but i mean other features such as copy and paste from any page or pictures or cropping parts of a picture and translating it's text are the best features Spen had and this app has them too !

just love it! All in one app .... I request the developers to add options to pass and resume screen recorder.

its stopped working automatically after some time in my Infinix Note 5 plz solve it . in accessibility Setting it show that foo view is on but not Working after restart phone it work perfectly for only 15 minutes ,..............................................................,..............................................................,..............................................................,..............................................................,..................................

How do i switch off the preview mode aftr taking a screenshot. I dont want the app to show a preview to edit the screenshot. Olease help me out here.

Only one bug. After granting accessibility permission both basic and advance. Every other day it asks to grant it again even when it already is granted. Rest all functions are very useful

Love it. Super simple but packed with features. I love how I can snip parts of the screen just like I can on my Mac (lol)

How can I live without giving 5 stars in such a great app! It's a super duper awesome app!! I am speechless!! Great great great job dear developer sir! It's like a dream app!! I am feeling really very awesome!! 😘😘

one of the great tools i have ever used . saves time , easy methods.but please, move screenshots to the right hand site or vice versa but divide it from another apps , thanks in advance for such a great tool

Best app for all things i am using scence 1 year it is best for screenshot,multiple sreenshots,video recoding,games,browser and much more but why developer cant provide update details this detailes are 3 times i read.pls provide update currect details

One of the most useful & innovative apps you'll ever find. Swiss army knife app with tons of uses & amazing functionality. If you have the patience to learn how to use it, I guarantee this will become an invaluable addition to your phone or tablet.

Please add volumer slider in gesture option.

very versatile. If you are a fan of paranoid Android halo, IFTTT, and many other custom features, then this app is for you

This app, I recommend for everyone. from my experience, it really, really a great app. it does everything I don't expect from it. therefore give it a full 🌟

Great app but for a few days now it stopped working had to restart the app everytime to use it.

The screen recording, do not still record smoothly, and the recording size is way too high.

The best app. It has so many features integrated in it. Brilliant developer.

SUCH A GREAT APP... So much Productive and Helpful.... It gives an similar experience of having a Galaxy Note device with S pen Features...... life without this app is unbelievable

It's what I'm looking for! But it so laggy while using search function. Can I disable file scanning feature?

Long time user of the app. Never had any issues and devs regularly update with new functionality.

Love!!! Still learning but GREAT so far. Love the customization options... Really Solid App!!!... Good Job👍👍👍

Very Helpful, But in some phones many features of it are not working.

The most needed app in Android phones!!!

Best aap. Easy to used and so many features is osm.

One of the apps that i cant live without. I Love how it never asks for money/rate!

Very good app having all the features

Thnks fooView.....improve some issue I face some problem when i split the screen....🙁

I will use this app forever I wish I cloud meet the developer to Say thanks This app made my life very easy ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Fantastic app.. Doing what you want...

very productive and helpful and multi tasking app. And improving day by day 😍. Thank you developers

Nice.. useful and free also... But where the privacy policy ?

I so much love this App very nice and easy to operate.

very nice But my concern is that Gesture action ie not working in Customise Task option

Great app that lets you do so much.

Finally someone figured out how to make your phone usage easier and more efficient despite its brand or size.

A must have app with great features

When try to grand permission it says "Fooview does not support current device language" What to do now?

I tried this for a couple days and it was interesting to play with, but for me it ultimately seemed like a solution to a need I don't have. I could see where this would be great for those who really like minimalist home page setups with virtually no app icons or folders. You could easily use this to launch about anything without them. I have very large and somewhat arthritic fingers so holding the phone in one hand while using the other to tap and select is my usual means of operation. I like having my folders and app icons on my home page. This app doesn't offer any real advantages for me though it is well done and worth trying at least.

#Urgent! Plz add the back up and restore and Sync feature especially for clipboard and notes. Now I can't transfer my clipboard datas and notes from my old phone to my new phone. As a fooView only user or use only for a long time, so my copied important clipboard datas and notes from fooView are hundreds of tons. So plz help, how to get my fooView's clipboard datas and notes from my old phone to new phone. Plz upgrade and add a back up and restore and Sync feature as quick as you can, thanks.

Your app is not working properly do something

One of the best app. Doing it's job excellent.

Not remotely user friendly. Don't bother getting back to me, developers.

App functions are very helpful but using this app is a very big threat to your data, because it captures everything on your phone's display to provide all the facilities available to you, use it at your own risk.
