Quickly Change from One App to Another with APPoint
When we use our devices these days, we look for ease of access to our data, and a high level of responsiveness when we try to access said information. Here at XDA, we have seen numerous options when it comes to launching apps quickly and switching between them.We have introduced you to floating navigational buttons and floating settings . Not that long ago, we featured an app that allows you to control a lot of features of your device called Floating Toucher.
XDA Senior Member MOST2K2 brings us another contender for fast access to favorite apps and settings, without having to access the app drawer. Using a floating point on your screen, you can launch a customizable quick launch panel. In the panel, you can categorize your apps into pages, and there is an additional page for quickly changing your device settings.
The application supports Android 2.2 or higher, and does not require a rooted device. Head over to the application thread for more information and download links.

But it'll be a long time...
