FAST App Search Tool

FAST App Search Tool


Find and Launch Applications fast and for free with a small App that needs not a single permission!

Just type in a fraction of the name of the App you want to launch - most of the time 3 chars are enough.

If you have an Device with Jelly-Bean or newer you can use the Google Now gesture to open this app.

The app is smaller than 70kb

FAST is an recursive acronym for FAST App Search Tool

You can choose between 3 Themes:
#1 dark
#2 light
#3 transparent ( try this with some Live Wallpaper :)

A single click launches the App - a long click gives you 3 Options:
#1 Go to the App details
#2 Open the App in Google Play
#3 Open the App as a Notification for FAST access at a later time

The App is GPLv3 - you can find the source on GitHub: https://github.com/ligi/FAST

Amazing This app is very useful. It's a no frill, all function utility. One of the few free apps I actually wish I could have bought.

Fast and simple, but... it would be nice to have a list layout setting as the grid layout looks cluttered when using tiny icons. Also it would be nice to have caching run in the background so I can still use the app as it seems to be caching apps every time I open it.

MUST HAVE APP Indeed a must have app! I find it very peculiar that this basic app search functionality isn't part of Android by default (maybe it has something to do with patents?!). Anyway, a very convenient app. The 'Search within words' option imo should be turned off by default (the search results confused me with this option activated). A very well designed app with lots of options. An example of simplicity in app design for other app developers.
