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

I love it I use this app more than i would like to admit but I would like to see icon pack support because I use Nova launcher with icon pack and it looks a bit strange. But the app is verry good and it does what it is supposed to do with ease

Great idea! Finaly an app to make my home button useful. A bit memory intensive but priceless. Very nice customizable interface. Best launcher replacement alowing easy multitasking and clean home screen. There is sadly no option to export the settings to the SD card.

Love it Always thought that the swipe up function was wasted and now this app gives you all you need. Would like to see this in material design (android L) style?
