Does your Android device of choice have a broken (or difficult to press) home button? If so, XDA forum member idiotjohn may have the perfect solution for you.
Despite the dependency issue whereby you need to be at the launcher to manually active the application, there are plenty of valid uses for an application with the sole purpose of taking you to your home screen. This application can be called from other applications such as SwipePad, which makes Go Home accessible anywhere.
In the words of the developer:
Ever wanted an app which you can run which just takes you to your home screen? Have you broken your home button, and now to get to your home screen, you have to press back continuously? No longer will you desire such an app – It is here for you!
An app so simple that it doesn’t need options. Just run it and it takes you to your home screen.
Save your home button; continue on to the application thread now!_________
