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:)

definitely a 5 star app. makes launching apps and shortcuts much much more faster and easier. using this makes my homescreen cleaner and i don't need to use the app drawer that often because i just use this to launch all my apps.

Amazing, launch problems After finding this app I can not live without it but recently on my Asus Zenfone 2 the app will close and I will have to reopen it in order to use it again which can be troublesome. Besides this minor, recent flaw this is one of my favourite apps. Hope this gets fixed soon!

Great Functionality & Customizable I have this app on all my android devices. I first installed this app when I got the first Galaxy S, again on my HTC One X, and now I have it on my current G3 and Tab 10.1 Pro. My only *criticism* is that the context pad is a bit iffy right now, sometimes I have to access it twice for it to recognize that I've switched apps but I give it 5 stars even with that
