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 DG Settings, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

Great great effort I have used a lot of secondary launchers(wave launcher, swipe launcher, glove box etc.) But nothing works as good as this one. Great App

A direct call would be nice, not only to get the number from the agenda. Till then only 4 stars

Simple. Basic. Exactly right No fancy mods that hog your resources. Just does what you want it to do.

Simple and functional I have tried them all and this is the best for replacing the swipe up from home gesture for a quick launcher. I don't care for the hotspot launchers since they always end up being launched accidentally. Combine Home Button Launcher with WidgetPad to add widget shortcuts to the launcher.
