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:)

Great but flawed Couldn't imagine being without it, combined with Folder Organizer it makes Android so much easier to use. However, if you don't hover over a selection for at least half a second to a second, it won't activate it. This small but annoying issue has existed for over 2.5 years. Please fix it.
