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:)

User reviews of SwipePad - Gesture Launcher
total crap. do not download. Don't be fooled into thinking this is a free app --just a sales platform for his stupid add ons

What a great app. With the addition of a home function for the portals, it totally enables operating a large phone (like the S3) one-handed. Modern app developers should start designing with the range of the human thumb in mind, or go back to iPhone.

I bough Power Strip for quicker access to my password manager when logging onto websites. Unfortunately I couldn't get used to Power Strip stealing away my Home key. This app uses swiping gestures to launch apps which I think is a stroke of genius. Hopefully the widget add-on will get the ability to actually display widgets and not not just link to them.

...man definiert einen oder mehrere Slide-Points auf dem Screen, zieht einen Radar-Kreis auf die gewünschte App und schon wird diese gestartet; funktioniert in jedem Level, man muss also nicht auf den Homescreen oder den Taskmanager öffnen.

Stable and works most of the time. But sometimes the app doesn't open. Also, I Was hoping that the all apps button would direct me to my theme's actual app drawer rather than to swipe pad's ugly list of my apps

Best Task Switcher BAR NONE! Been using Swipepad and it's add-ons for a couple of years. It is lightening fast and reliable. Never a problem or bug. One app to rule them all...

Lollipop broke the recent tasks gesture? Love this app, but my favorite Hotspot is the Recent Apps one. After updating to Lollipop, it seems to now be broken (it only shows me SwipePad app and not all my other recent apps). Please address in an update.
