Reviewed in Best free apps without obstrusive ads
Very useful stuff for multi-tasker or anybody who likes to switch between stop apps constantly. You can even add your favorite apps so that it is always visible. The free version doesn't give you much room for interface adjustment, so it gives ugly interface by default IMO. Still a worthy program to try and if you find useful, buy it.

- for some reason MIUI doesn't support on-display views, this is the way to make Swapps work:
Go to settings -> Applications -> swapps ->
Click on "show popup notification"
Click on "clear cache"
Click on "permission management"
Click on "autostart permission"
Reboot, enjoy Swapps with MIUI :D
