Great app launcher Perfect for users of Alfred or Quicksilver. You just open Quickdroid and type in the app you'd like to open. I use this with Nova Launcher,and I've set up a double tap on the homescreen which opens Quickdroid. I haven't used my app drawer in months.

Most used app on my phone This is without a doubt the most used app on my phone. Think Windows Start Menu, Launchy, GNOME Do, etc. Google Now has similar, but inferior app search capabilities, as QuickDroid allows you to search in the whole name ("roid" finds "Android") while Google Now will only find words ("and" finds "Android", "roid" finds nothing). This app combined with Home2Shortcut (allows you to double-tap your home button to launch an app, I set it to launch QuickDroid) makes using your phone quicker than it has ever been.
