Reviewed in Forget your homescreen!
The core of this channel. Either pie or swipe pad, pie has better looks, swipe pad has more options. Both apps differ from other side launchers in a simple but important detail: the selected app triggers on touch release, which literally makes them twice as fast than their alternatives.

Pockets6794: has finally added themes!!!
SwipePad is a launcher panel overlay, the fastest app switcher. With a single swipe gesture, you can launch anything from within any app. It's extraordinarily simple and intuitive to use:
1. Touch down a pre-set edge of the screen;
2. Move your finger towards the center of the screen so the pad will emerge;
3. Release your finger on a specific slot to action.
That's it! This will bring your multitasking to a new level:)
★ A pad can hold a mix of apps, shortcuts, bookmarks, contacts etc. With widgetpad add-on, it can even launch a widget from anywhere!
★ This is not a home app, your home key preference is kept (works with all 3rd party home apps like Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, ADW Launcher, Go Launcher EX etc.)
★ The app under SwipePad keeps running: no interruption
★ Memory & battery friendly
★ "DIRECTLY CALL PHONE NUMBERS" permission is required by Android system dialer shortcut. So you can set up a quick dial portal, and call your favorite contact with a single swipe.
Ideas and suggestions are welcomed:)
