Appsi sidebar

Appsi sidebar


Appsi is your new way of working with your android device. It was featured as one of the top five new Apps in August on Android Police.

It will save you time and provide you immediate access to anything you may need, like your apps, widgets, your call log or your favorite contacts.

How does this work?

As a sidebar for android, Appsi lives on top of everything else that is going in on your device, you only need to slide your finger over the screen starting at a location of your choice to get access to your Apps and the Home page.
If you have multiple plugins, you can set up more of these hotspots to access their data (for example call log, apps or SMS messages). And instantly call or text your favorite contacts.

What do I get?

By default Appsi has a home page which you can completely personalize. You can add Widgets, Home Plugins (third party developers can create them as well) and DashClock extensions. Home plugins can show you all kinds of information like weather, unread mail count, missed call count and a lot more. Appsi also has the apps page, which will allow you to navigate through your apps. You can also add as many favorite apps as you'd like which will be on top of the list, Appsi will also allow you to quickly search through a list of all you apps and every other plugin you have installed.

You can change almost anything in the appearance of Appsi. Change the transparency and the background of the sidebar. Choose from a light and a dark theme. Soon you'll also be able to choose the secondary color (in beta right now). You can change the font size, icon size and the spacing between the elements.

You get a search bar that you can use to find anything you have a plugin for, or in case you don't like the search bar, you can hide it.

And besides opening apps, a lot more plugins are available. There is a more extended version of the apps plugin in which you can also see recent apps and running apps and you can stop them instantly. It will also allow you to add favorites and show all apps.
There is the Calls plugin which allows you to choose your favorite contacts, will display your call log and list the contacts you selected. By default it will dial the contact you tap on, but this behavior can be changed to your needs. Using this plugin you can call anyone with only one slide.

Many more plugins will be developed in the future which will give you even more control over your device. Once new features are added to Appsi these will be available to all plugins.

Give it a try, and you will never look back!

The additional plugins mentioned above are provided as separate apps and need Appsi to function. Appsi itself is completely free, and contains no ads. The plugins are paid apps, and do not contain any ads either.

Widgets and additional plugins don't work This used to be by far my favorite side launcher because of its performance and all of the options of stuff you can add to it. Now that widgets don't work the functionality is cut to maybe a quarter of what it used to be. I still liked it enough to buy some of the other plugins, but returned then when they didn't work. Unfortunately, I never heard back from the developer about either of these issues. Also desperately needs a backup function.

SUPER EXCELLENT, VERY HELPFUL. APPSI is so good it ought to be integrated as the industry standard Android user interface. Developer has always responded to my inquiries quickly and in a friendly tone. I also purchased the plug-ins a long time ago, and they are great too. APPSI makes the user experience highly customizable. Many thanks for such excellent work and for your dedication.
