Want to Quickly Switch between Running Apps? Try Fancy Switcher

There are lots of ways to switch between your opened applications in Android. By default, you can simply tap on the recent apps button and choose or close your apps—but that’s pretty much all you can do. Quite a unique solution was presented in Loopr, which was inspired by LMT Launcher and Paranoid Android’s PIE controls. Now, it’s time to present you with yet another way to manage your applications: Fancy Switcher.

This application was developed by XDA Forum Member JKab, and it combines PIE with the recent apps button. To access your applications, you need to swipe your finger from the margin of the screen towards the center. The list of opened applications will show up, and you can choose which one to open. Of course, you can define a trigger area to a place that suits you most. There are also options to configure various elements of Fancy Switcher, including visual preferences. The app doesn’t require root access, and it should work on every device running Android 4.0 or greater.

If you are looking for an interesting application to manage your running apps, consider giving Fancy Switcher a try. You can learn more by visiting the application thread.
