Perfect Task Switcher

Perfect Task Switcher


Beautiful and intuitive task switcher application which improves the way you use your Android phone. Quickly switch between last used tasks with previews graphics, smooth animations and an easy yet intuitive user interface.

Simply perfect...

FEATURES
* Quick and easy task switcher
* Elegant design in Froyo and Gingerbread style
* Integrates very well with all common home screen replacements like LauncherPro, ADW and Zeam
* Preview of running tasks
* Quickly stop (kill) foreground tasks to free up phone memory and save battery lifetime
* no root required on your phone

HOW IT WORKS
* Launch Perfect Task Switcher by pressing your HOME key
* Press your HOME key a second time to switch to your default launcher (with support for LauncherPro, ADW, and others)
* Swipe through the previews to quickly switch to a running task

KNOWN ISSUES
* Preview graphics are of poor quality. This is a limitation by the Android OS itself. Improved previews for rooted phones and tablets is underway...
* Gingerbread and some CyanogenMod versions do not show previews. This will be fixed for rooted phones soon.
* Perfect Task Switcher does not support Honeycomb.
* Not all key shortcuts (like long-press home) can be supported by this app. This is a limitation of Android and cannot be circumvented.


REMARKS
Task preview graphics are not supported on all Android devices. Quality of the preview graphics is very limited and depends on the manufacturer. As this is a BETA release we've enabled Google Analytics to track your devices capabilities. This anonymous reporting can be disabled anytime through the application's preferences screen.

We're working on improving device compatibility and adding high-res previews for rooted devices in one of the next releases. Stay tuned!

* Fixed tons of bugs and force close issues

User reviews of Perfect Task Switcher
Perfect idea. But must pe improved, better thumbnail image quallity, exceptions on apps, better speed animation, automatic rotation. Good work on this app. Very good idea!

I like this app very much, but few things must be fixed. I'm using LauncherPro and WidgetLocker Lockscreen and i think they must not be shown in the main screen for killing. There must be some exclude list for certain apps or something like this.

A new version has just been uploaded. Thanks for all your comments so far! I'm trying to further improve it over the next couple of weeks...

The app needs true task switching so that switching to another app finds it in the state it was and not re-launching. This has been promised in Beta-3 for a while, but doesn't seem to be coming!

I agree with foldinghome & bbrg548. It is exactly what I have been searching for. (Streak 2.2)

Not perfect No previews on Gingerbread. Well in the next update.... But last update is from 2011. I mailed the developer to ask him if he still worked on the project. No responce and his website is dead. I hope the developer is still alive, and makes that update. This app has great potential. I guess the developer died.... and forget Android 4.2.2
