Usage is extremely simple:
1. Touch the very bottom of the screen and slowly swipe your finger up towards the middle of the screen.
2. When you get towards the middle, the wave appears!
3. Without raising your finger, swipe left or right to select the desired application.
4. To launch the app, simply raise your finger from the screen.

This is one of the must have apps on my phone.

Best looking and is my most frequently used launcher/app. The app drawer plug in is extra cool---being able to go to the list of apps from any screen w/o navigating home first, is so useful. Update: emailed the dev(s) with a request and received a (quite promising) response. It is excellent that they consider their user base.

Sad google got envious of this app 😢 Its sad that google shoved some kind of bar at the bottom of my screen now I can't use this app anymore. Good app too but the google bar makes it impossible to use this application on my HTC M8 😢

Doesn't work All that ever appears is an arc with two preset apps regardless of settings
