Good but not always near top and lacks options. Very nice app but it sometimes appears too low in the notifications. Also lacks settings of competing similar app Fast5 Task Switcher, eg excluding specific apps. On the other hand Fast5 is limited to showing 5 apps and seems to ignore a few apps for no reason.

All in all, it's a great app Does what it says, and does it good. There are only a few things missing for it to get a 5/5. First, the app line-up should be scrollable, and definitely not cut the last icon. Second, having the app symbol constantly showing up in the top bar is quite annoying. And third, there's a minor bug when relaunching the app where it doesn't recognize the current recent app list. Other then that, great work. I'd really love to see the first two issues fixed.

Useful Beyond functioning smoothly and having a clean interface, this app is truly useful and simply does what it says it does. My brother-in-law recommended Alt Tab and in turn I highly recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect replacement to holding down the start button to switch from app to app.
