syosyosyo: I'm a huge fan of Swipepad :) better than all other apps of the same function imho. It was one of the first and does it the best I think. All in one movement too! And FREE. Edit: hah! I was about to add that development seems to have stopped but boom I just got an update that added theme support! Now all we need is to wait for people to start making some themes.I tried out the sample and it's pretty neat! You can change the backing of the icons and the look of the selector thing. Sweet! I'm just thrilled that it's still very much alive:)

Launch anything, anywhere, anytime. Swipepad is the best "touch launcher" all round. With innovative plugins, plenty of space, customizable locations & option for multiple launchers (opened from different spots) it's fast, fast & fast.
SwipePad is a launcher panel overlay, the fastest app/task switcher. With a single swipe action, 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:)
You could help with localization: translate the app into your language
