    One of my favorite moves on the OPO was the V drawing for the light. Some had issues with it turning on in pocket, I never did.

    This looks great.

    I just received my Moto x 2 today and that flashlight chomp would come in handy, at least there trying.

    I think twist for camera is gimmicky and never use it. This could be useful as long as the sensitivity isn't such that it unintentionally activates in normal use.

    I like the flashlight app that you can double tap the power button

    I find it useful but it would be better if I could use the twist to activate the Google camera app rather than the Moto one (Google camera app has more options) but the option to enable the wrist-twist is INSIDE the Moto camera app so that won't happen.

    I haven't had ANY problems with it activating unexpectedly, in fact if I don't do it right I have to try again to get the camera open. One place it falls short, if you have a PIN code lock screen (if you don't, shame) it won't work.
