Home Button Launcher

Home Button Launcher


→ This app is ad-free and open source ←

Launch your favorite apps through the «Home Button Swipe Up» gesture.
• This works best on devices with three soft keys, like Nexus 5 or Moto G (i.e. devices that have virtual «Back / Home / Recent Apps» soft buttons).
• On some devices this app opens when doing a "Long click" on the home button (e.g. the newer HTC and Sony Xperia phones).
• Most Samsung devices are not at all or very poorly supported (since Samsung overrides 'Home Button' behavior with their own software).

→ Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
→ Also check out Home Button Launcher Tools, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

Exceptional app!! This app is incredible for shortcuts. I especially love that it includes widgets, like turn wifi on/off, and the use of tabs (fully customisable). Not entirely integratable with my stock LG G3, but it does what it says, and very well i must add!

Can you add an option to sort the apps based on usage? So the last app used is at the top or something similar
