Overlay Launcher


#########################################

I have stopped development for Overlay Launcher.
Try the successor app, "Smart Task Launcher"

from Developer
#########################################

This is fastest function(Apps, Shortcut, open/close Notification, etc.) launcher.
You can do most operations by moving your thumb slightly.

1. By touching Hotspot (the gesture area that are always visible on the screen), you can call the functions corresponding to the gesture. (If your device is Rooted, you can also issue a hard button events)
2. By registering apps to Launcher, you will be able to start them at any time quickly.

Gestures that can be registered in Hotspot
-> Left, Right, Up, Down scroll
-> Single-tap
-> Long-press
-> Double-tap

Function that can be registered in each gesture.
-> Open Launcher
-> Application, Shortcut
-> Open/Close Notification
-> Go to Home app
-> Hide Hotspot
-> Back, Menu, Search, Power key (only ROOT user)
-> etc.

Functions that can be registered in Launcher
-> App
-> Shortcut

Still the best in class, best implemation. I tried all the other apps. Only this one works flawlessly. Able to launch widgets and even resize the widget!! Great job dev. Will get the paid version.

Works as a secondary home screen So many launch options and customization even in the free version. One of the simplest yet best-thought access app.

Two main issues One, the app does not start on its own on reboot even if auto start button is ticked. It always have to be started manually, in earlier Android 4.1.1 version and now 4.3. This is pretty annoying considering this is the only shortcut app I use to open any app from any app. Two, that ugly icon has to stay in notification bar by having to tick that button for it to run constantly, else it shuts down randomly. I have put it in safe list of the two auto app killer apps, so it doesn't get killed.
