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

Simple, but essential. This should be built into Android base. Great idea, makes things much simpler. Thanks 😀

Nice app. I moved to Lollipop recently and can't use Xposed with Gravity Box anymore. This app fills in nicely where I used to enjoy customization of the nav ring. So now I have a popup window instead. I'll take it. Great app but just wish the popup could be less generic looking. Particularly a way to remove the title would be nice. Or present the apps in different shapes.
