    It wouldn't be fair to not mention sloth launcher in the mix of quick access apps. Let me say, off the bat, that this app reminds me of Tasker and Aviate Launcher. Tasker because of the program like set up and Aviate for its attempt to have the phone present specific apps in particular situations. So basically you set which apps to display when your headset is plugged in or when you're on a specific WiFi connection . Even more options become available if you go premium. Again, we have the option of the apps being presented in the notification bar or side bar with a pull tab to activate. The pull tab is almost like a floating bubble and the side bar itself is similar to Samsung's side bar. It may not be completely unique, but it is certainly practical.
