Hangar Manages Your Applications with Ease

In the real world, a hangar is a closed structure that’s generally used to hold aircraft or spacecraft in protective storage. We don’t really have jets and airplanes in Android–at least, not real life ones—but that’s not to say that a hangar is out of place on our mobile devices. A new app that goes by the name Hangar allows us to keep our home screens uncluttered by managing our favorite apps.

Hangar by XDA Recognized Developer blk_jack provides access to your most frequently used apps. You can access your apps and switch between them from anywhere, without minimizing anything. If you like to keep your home screen icon free, Hangar is a perfect solution for you. The app keeps track of which games and applications have been opened the most and displays them in your notification tray.

Hangar offers plenty of customization, including the ability to change how apps are displayed in the notification bar. Hangar also gives you statistics and overall time spent in applications through a convenient widget. The app even automatically detects what kind of device you have and resizes itself for optimal user experience.

Hangar is very similar to the recent apps display in HTC Sense, but of course, it can be run on any device as long as it’s on Android 4.2 or greater. If you want to keep your home screen as clean as possible, Hangar is worth a shot. You can get started in the application thread.
