    Ever felt jealous of your friend's iPhone assistive touch? Don't be, because there exists a better alternative and that's *drumroll* SwipePad! Swipe from corners and edges to access apps like a pro without having to see pesky little floating buttons.

    Makes multitasking in Android so much better. Easily start your 12 most used apps from any other application. If you spend some money you can extend the functionality and launch even more apps.

    A mini action bar that allows you to access your apps or quick settings quickly. It has no lag and is ad free. The interface is beautiful and swift at the same time. Great for multitasking!

    This is currently the only quick launcher I've stuck with for longer than 2 minutes. The only thing that let's it down for me is the black background.

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:)

Some notes:
★ 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
