SwipePad - Gesture Launcher

SwipePad - Gesture Launcher


SwipePad is a launcher panel overlay, the fastest app switcher. With a single swipe gesture, you can launch anything from within any app.

It's extraordinarily simple and intuitive to use:
1. Touch down a pre-set edge of the screen;
2. Move your finger towards the center of the screen so the pad will emerge;
3. Release your finger on a specific slot to action.

That's it! This will bring your multitasking to a new level:)

Some notes:
★ A pad can hold a mix of apps, shortcuts, bookmarks, contacts etc. With widgetpad add-on, it can even launch a widget from anywhere!

★ This is not a home app, your home key preference is kept (works with all 3rd party home apps like Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, ADW Launcher, Go Launcher EX etc.)

★ The app under SwipePad keeps running: no interruption

★ Memory & battery friendly

★ "DIRECTLY CALL PHONE NUMBERS" permission is required by Android system dialer shortcut. So you can set up a quick dial portal, and call your favorite contact with a single swipe.

Ideas and suggestions are welcomed:)

Used to be great Kind of slow now. Still convenient, just lags after you select an app. Developers seem to have abandoned the app. Quite broken now.

Can't use Android without this So many uses. Open passkey storage while logging on. With More Space and DynamicPads, even zap back to log on app. Lock phone instantly. Often used apps. Use with Folder Organizer to get quick access to almost every app you have.

this is the Best and the Fastest multitasking on Google play! New update VERY GOOD! You won't find better and fast launcher than this. I look for different alternative but could not find anything better than this. I agree with others that it should be default launcher. On my Lg g3 works perfectly! Don't change!

Used to be perfect Lately the message "swipepad has stopped working" or it doesn't switch apps has become more frequent. Please fix.

Major issues I use this app a lot and it use to work really well but now I have to swipe to apps and contacts multiple times to launch them. Also sometimes lags when activating.
