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

Suggestion- You could add customization options or at least android lollipop material design...

Totally baffled - need Instructions in words please... I'm afraid I can't make head nor tail of it. I need some basic explanation in words please - the video doesn't help me. At present I can't work out how to use it or to configure it at all.

Great and lightweight The app is very lightweight despite which is very functional. However, the tab labels are far too small and the tab length is not customizable, hence eree,s a tendency to cut the words--ugly but tolerable.
