    A unique and fast method of accessing your fave apps, settings & media - sadly I dont believe theres a lite version so you only get the 15min google play refund limit to test it. Its truly something special though, so give it a shot.

Wave Launcher is the ultimate add-on launcher available for Android! With a single swipe you can launch up to 120(!) of your favorite apps, shortcuts and recently-used apps regardless of which app is currently running. Wave Launcher is accessible anytime, anywhere!

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.
5. If you change your mind and don't want to launch anything, simply swipe the wave back to the bottom.

Notable features:
✓ The wave can contain any application or shortcut you can add to your home screen.
✓ The wave can contain a direct-access icon to the built-in app-drawer.
✓ The wave can contain dynamically updating recently-used apps.
✓ 'Recents Mode' will show you 12 recently used-apps

This is a very customizable app. PLEASE read the info in the Help screen, it contains lots of useful information.

NOTE: Permission to make phone calls is required for placing direct-call shortcuts on the wave.
