Abstract or Description

We present BackPat -- a technique for supporting one-handed smartphone operation by using pats of the index finger, middle finger or thumb on the back or side of the device. We devise a novel method using the device's microphone and gyroscope that enables finger-specific gesture detection and explore efficiency and user acceptance of gesture execution for each finger in three user studies with novice BackPat users.
