Pulldown App Drawer

Pulldown App Drawer


Launch any of your apps from any other app!

*MIUI and Android 4.0+ users will need to set the Vertical Location to BOTTOM. Otherwise the drawer's bar will be behind the status bar and will not be accessible.

*On devices with an on-screen navigation bar, you must make sure to pull up from just above the navigation bar when accessing the drawer from the bottom. Otherwise, the navigation bar will intercept the touch event.

Pulling up/down on the left, middle, or right 1/4 of the status bar or bottom of the screen (depending on your setting) will display all of your installed apps. No need to go back to your homescreen to launch other apps!

It will even work when the status bar is not present (e.g. when an app is running in fullscreen). This may interfere with some games so you may want to stop the service before playing games if it causes problems.

There are settings to choose which apps to show or hide in the pulldown and also settings to customize the appearance.

**NOTE: Because of a "feature" of the Android OS, the back and home buttons will not close the app drawer if it is opened within 5 seconds after pressing the home key on your device. Just be aware of that so you don't accidentally close apps behind the drawer.

Recent changes:
v1.2
• Ability to display an ongoing notification. This will keep the system from killing the app in order to reclaim memory.

About the start at boot, the drawer SHOULD start up at boot if it was currently running when the device was shut off.

RESTART BOOT ISSUE... ♻ Does not restart the drawer after rebooting my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet even when I currently had it on before booting. 🔧

Have been looking for such an app. Very cool, makes app drawer accessible instantly. I wish it autostarted. I see there are many similar voices :)

Fantastic but missing key feature I love this app, but it would be great if you could add a start on boot option to auto start the service. Edit: still doesn't do it, possibly due to the app not requesting start on boot permissions? Shouldn't be an issue with my selinux being changed to permissive mode on boot should it?

Fantastic BUT missing a KEY feature I love this app it works great but can you include the ability to scroll by alphabet via that scroll bar? Also please allow each letter to show up in the app drawer with all the apps by that letter beneath it. Sort of like aviates app drawer. Then I give it 5 stars.
