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.

Really handy. Only one thing I didn't like. It would be awesome if you could drag apps onto your home screen from the sidebar. Tip: don't place a hotspot too low on the screen: the keyboard won't work

Was Great Good app but a major lack of support the last 6 months. Last update was December. Still waiting on an update, it's now September & getting close to a year without an update, come on man.

Simply awesome.... HOWEVER.... There's one REALLY big problem: Due to the fact that you can't change the color, length and transparency of the side bar.... the app is extremely obtrusive, and all of my pictures and movies have a long, ugly blue sidebar off to the side. So essentially, this app's utility is worthless without the ability to adjust the sidebar parameters. EDIT: Uninstalling the app, as it appears the dev doesn't care about modifying it. I have other apps with invisible sidebars. Screw this
