Smart Taskbar – Launch Any App in 2 Steps
If you own an Android device, you may be aware that there are various launchers on the Market. Here is another one, but with a different twist.
Smart Taskbar is launcher/task switcher/app organiser written by XDA forum member jerryfan2000 and features a mini side bar for super fast app launching. The side bar is hidden until you slide your finger or click on a transparent trigger icon on the screen. One of the benefits of Smart Taskbar is that it frees up your home screen for more widgets instead of app shortcuts.
In most cases, you can complete app launching in 2 finger clicks (1st swipe, and 2nd click on app icon to launch). Possibly the fastest way to launch or switch between applications.
- 5 speedy launch spots
- App organiser function
- Task switch
- Soft Home button
For more information, visit the application thread. Smart Taskbar is available for free in the Market.
