AS SEEN ON…
★ there used to be a list of tech sites who reviewed GYF, along with their positive comments, here. However Google contacted me to complain about the app’s description. Lacking proper information, I decided to remove anything that refers to anyone — I believe I will put this list somewhere else and link to it in case it is what ticked off Google ☆

USERS DON'T HATE IT!
"A great addition to android. Feels like a natural part of the ui."
"really well put together. Enough options to satisfy even the most discerning geek!"
"The frequent updates have improved the app ten folds."
etc. ( GYF loves you too guys! )

Thaaaanks I've been looking for an app like this a long time ago... I used to be happy with Re launch, but they stopped developing... Keep the good work!

Promising Paid to support development. 1) remove hand flick icon at top of ribbon. 2) dragable flick area to allow user to place it exactly where they want.

Frustrating This app has a major flaw and you only find out after purchasing it: It randomly clears the User Drawer, removing what you specifically added. Extremely frustrating after you spend a lot of time making it just the way you want.

Update is rock solid and boots smoothly. So happy to have back! Recently I bought the donate version to support the developer and for boot startup functionality, only to discover crashing issues as another reviewer reported. Happily, these issues are fully resolved in the new (July 2013) iteration. I've got my baby back! Some apps are clever; others are handy; this one is a game changer. Best $2 spent on Android.
