I’m willing to bet that most of you out there have a section of your home screen that contains shortcuts to the applications that you use most frequently. Whether its the traditional eight icons under a giant clock or tucked away on the periphery in an attempt to your main screen neat and tidy, most of us have a patch of icons sitting somewhere that we’d rather swipe across to than open the app drawer.
There are a wealth of options available when it comes to finding a quick and easy way to access your most frequently used apps. Just look at the recently featured Homeflip for a great example. XDA Forum Member KaFrEEkAbOom, however, decided to add a new spin on the grouping of icons together on the home screen and developed AppSpace.
A simple application in the form of a widget, AppSpace allows you to replace that irregular looking gaggle of icons in favor of a single image containing numerous clickable areas, each assigned to a specific application. The spaces themselves take the form of locations packed with objects such as phones, calendars, and pictures—all of which are ready to be associated with any application that you choose.
Check out the original application thread for more info on AppSpace. And if anyone happens to know the correct collective noun for a group of icons, then please let me know in the comments below. Otherwise I think I’ll stick with gaggle._________
