Appsi is your new way of working with your android device. It was featured as one of the top five new Apps in August on Android Police.

PLEASE NOTE: Appsi does not support lollipop, please try Appsii (two i's) instead.

It will save you time and provide you immediate access to anything you may need, like your apps, widgets, your call log or your favorite contacts.

How does this work?

As a sidebar for android, Appsi lives on top of everything else that is going in on your device, you only need to slide your finger over the screen starting at a location of your choice to get access to your Apps and the Home page.
If you have multiple plugins, you can set up more of these hotspots to access their data (for example call log, apps or SMS messages). And instantly call or text your favorite contacts.

What do I get?

By default Appsi has a home page which you can completely personalize. You can add Widgets, Home Plugins (third party developers can create them as well) and DashClock extensions. Home plugins can show you all kinds of information like weather, unread mail count, missed call count and a lot more. Appsi also has the apps page, which will allow you to navigate through your apps. You can also add as many favorite apps as you'd like which will be on top of the list, Appsi will also allow you to quickly search through a list of all you apps and every other plugin you have installed.

You can change almost anything in the appearance of Appsi. Change the transparency and the background of the sidebar. Choose from a light and a dark theme. Soon you'll also be able to choose the secondary color (in beta right now). You can change the font size, icon size and the spacing between the elements.

You get a search bar that you can use to find anything you have a plugin for, or in case you don't like the search bar, you can hide it.

And besides opening apps, a lot more plugins are available. There is a more extended version of the apps plugin in which you can also see recent apps and running apps and you can stop them instantly. It will also allow you to add favorites and show all apps.
There is the Calls plugin which allows you to choose your favorite contacts, will display your call log and list the contacts you selected. By default it will dial the contact you tap on, but this behavior can be changed to your needs. Using this plugin you can call anyone with only one slide.

Many more plugins will be developed in the future which will give you even more control over your device. Once new features are added to Appsi these will be available to all plugins.

Give it a try, and you will never look back!

The additional plugins mentioned above are provided as separate apps and need Appsi to function. Appsi itself is completely free, and contains no ads. The plugins are paid apps, and do not contain any ads either.

Not so great with MI Home This is definitely not working with MI Home, the hot spots just disapears behind the launcher or something, i really want a sidebar but it seams no one is working with MI Home, is this something you could workout together? i would like to have my running apps in a sidebar which would be great for task switching.

David Younker

Pretty good It's a bit laggy at times, idk if it's because of what I've added to it but over its a great app

Laura Bacon

Widgets and additional plugins don't work This used to be by far my favorite side launcher because of its performance and all of the options of stuff you can add to it. Now that widgets don't work the functionality is cut to maybe a quarter of what it used to be. I still liked it enough to buy some of the other plugins, but returned then when they didn't work. Unfortunately, I never heard back from the developer about either of these issues. Also desperately needs a backup function.

Martin Kostial

Great usefull app I miss celsius switch for weather widget. Also there is not too much options, "hide apps" from list will be nice too :) That is reason for 4 stars. Oh, it will be nice with csipsimple support :)

Jamel Gibson

WHAT!? FREE!? This makes android... CYBORG. All of those stock Widgets that used to make me want to rip my hair out are useful now. You don't have to stop anything to find out the time day date, or shuffle through your recents to play the song gameloft stopped. Your applications are always at the ready, you can switch to Skype and then spam back,or pop out the window browser mid game without having to have it tabbed before you play. I LOVE THIS. I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO FISH FOR THE VOICE TRANSLATOR. yeah, it's a must

Wexl Brion

Overall good app Added widgets tend to freeze or not working after not using for awhile. need to go to home editor to refresh so widgets work again. please fix this. thanks to the developers.

Manish Kishore

Good, but need some bug fixes and features add on: 1. Place the Stock Music Widget. Play music. The album art will get displayed. Change to next track, album art won't change. Music widget is just an example, basically any widget (such as, Battery Widget with display of the change in the battery level) is not refreshing. Please fix this. 2. Allow the option to display the bar only on launcher screen and not on other apps screens. 3. Ability to hide "All Apps". This could be done as an option.

Dawn Propst

App is in my whitelist yet still foreclosing quite often lately I ♥ this app! If recent foreclosure issue was fixed and you added just 2 more personalization options were available this app would def be 5★'s. Requested options, 1.ability to change the height of hotspots not just the width. I thought this was something I had done once but unable to see any info about it now. 2. more hotspot color options or the ability to personalize their own colors. With F/C issue fixed & addition of features, this could be in my top 5 fav apps! GREAT JOB!

Barbara Proulx

Great App - Very Useful I have this installed on my Galaxy S3, Nook HD+, and my Nook HD. This app is great. Unlike another sidebar app I've used there are multiple pages and you can add or remove apps, settings, etc. and reorder them as you wish. You can also change the icon and text sizes as well as the space between the icons. There are other customization options, too. You will need to buy additional plug-ins for settings, apps, phone, contacts, etc. You can buy them separately or in a bundle. The bundle is cheaper. The price is very reasonable for the functionality the app offers. Figuring it out was a bit tricky because there are so many options but now that I've got it set up the way I want it's great. I highly recommend it.

Kathy Aji

Uninstalling Loved this app, but after an update awhile back, the sidebar keeps disappearing, usually a couple times a day. I have to go back into the app to get it to reappear. After posting about this issue twice with no response or fix, I'm uninstalling. Not worth the hassle.

Corey Burke

Ok You can't choose apps to hide from the apps list, which is unfortunate. Also, it is not compatible with Zooper widgets.

Jim Berry

Thought it was great, but has issues. Would be very good, but recently realised that widgets in the sidebar don't update at all, so if using the side bar for widgets it's useless. Also a bit laggy when rehiding the sidebar.

A Google User

Best I have found for sidebars Best sidebar I have found... And I swear I have tried them all. The best part is the full widget support that really let's you add exactly what you need. Even with widgets it doesn't lag like competitor sidebar apps I tried.

Halfdan Holm

Really handy. Only one thing I didn't like. It would be awesome if you could drag apps onto your home screen from the sidebar. Tip: don't place a hotspot too low on the screen: the keyboard won't work

Giannis Thalassinos

Awesome but not perfect. I love the customization this sidebar provides, however I have a couple gripes with it. I only use the Home page but the Appsi one is always a swipe away, I'd like the option to just disable it. On the Home page, I use minimalistic text as app launchers, more often than not this app stops registering my taps on these widgets. Other times they're very slow. Aside from that, I'm loving this app very much and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great sidebar.

Loco Cucamonga

SUPER EXCELLENT, VERY HELPFUL. APPSI is so good it ought to be integrated as the industry standard Android user interface. Developer has always responded to my inquiries quickly and in a friendly tone. I also purchased the plug-ins a long time ago, and they are great too. APPSI makes the user experience highly customizable. Many thanks for such excellent work and for your dedication.

Joe Danka

I am blown away. Its really amazing. No more boring screen to look at, enables me to open a whole new and exciting dimension in the way I use my phone. Perfect for young adults in college. No issues or problems yet. Except that when it was installed I put it on the same side as my category box is on so there's a bit of a conflict there. I like it and will give it a thorough work out, thrashing, or flogging. Update I'm having issues installing plugins for home favorites...user issue?

Jon Boutell

Process being killed I love this app, however the fact the main process gets killed by android is very very annoying. I hate having the notification turned on, even without the icon showing. I've excluded it from my task-killer app so I'm pretty sure it's android killing the main process. Other apps I'm using that run in the background (switchr) without a notification are not susceptible to being killed by android, so why is this? Can you look into it please. Besides that I have absolutely 0 complaints. A great addition to my home screen but HAVING to use the notification to stop it being killed takes away the customisation factor I so much enjoy about this app.

Stanley Augustowicz

Sweet app Since install this app has been a top notch performer. Like other sidebar apps it has a lot of customization options, but what separates it from the rest of the pack is its stability, have yet to experience any app crashes or other glitches. Installed on a Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

Ivan Triplesix

Good But I know this is beta version, I want side bar move more smoothly, like other side bar, but this is best side bar ever, only need move smoothly when opening side bar... I hope you listen my opinion... Good job Dev...

John Cook

This guy can drive! ★★★★★ It handle floating capable when you slide to choose apps! It's stand over all apps running even html5 playback is running. Tried n impressed, "Floating Toucher" "GO Toucher pro" and "Sidebar pro" from my phone has been gone for-ever, now, is the ages of "Appsi sidebar". P/s: add apps shortcut should be supported in next update! You kool, dev!

Matthew Griffiths

It's great but Not being able to hide the bar on 4.3 ruins it. Xperia z1

Shahveiz Zameer

Perfect... Best sidebar on the play store...just have one complaint about the beta version n plugins compatibility issue...other than that...flawless.

Michelle Mendoza

Works well, looks a little weird with transparent notification bar enabled. Wish there were more options for customization.

Bintang Musiranda

great but,,, can you make this app smother? and when i touch the screen to scrolling, the field become grey. thats anoying while i use costum background. and fast scrolling is disappear even i check it.


Almost there Makes everything easier very cool. Only one problem when adding widgets it slows down and does not update the widgets


Awesome I love this app. It's easy to use and i love how you can customize the color and the background and that you can add favorites.

Markus Kantonen

Best sidebar app! Please give a option to remove/hide texts, apps/home button + the settings buttons to give it a cleaner look !

Armino Faja

Icons If you could change the icon theme to match with my launcher icon pack and keep the app in memory the whole time wizhout the app stop that would be amazing!!!!

Ron Coyne

Would like to love this, but... ... having the same issue as another commenter noted before, in that it keeps closing, forcing me to go into my app drawer to reopen Appsi. If this is how the app operates, what's the point? Am hoping this is a bug which can be fixed promptly...

Norman Laguerder

for asus fonepad note 6 a responsive that is great for multi-tasking. The home/widget bar is far more better than Sidebar Plus. I just hope the widget bar would also worh with the quick previews when the stylus hovers. Great app

Brad Radziej

Half way there! Love the gesture switch between home/apps,& home screen customization. However the app manager (free & upgrade) are seriously lacking in functionality & design. It needs app categories!! "App Arrange+ Quick Launcher" is a far more functional & better looking app manager. Also home screen needs to allow shortcuts, because your contact upgrade is no good. I had to install "Photo+ Launcher" app >shortcut>contact so that I could add decent 2x2 contacts to the home screen. Good app, needs work!

Nicole Look-Christensen

Love the idea But my widgets stop updating & I have to edit home multiple times a day to keep them working.

A Google User

Plugins App works great, But there is a bug, I installed all plugins but none worked except the app plugin and the contacts plugin, the other plugins say that they need update!! please fix!!

Edward Jones

I Candy Luv this app, it's 1 of my top picks that I call I Candy, If you could make it possible 2 change the font & font colors it's will be a show stopper

Caturatmaja Adi Cahya

Ram Eater If u could make ram usage small u deserve 5 stars. It eat 30mb of my precios ram. Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Christian Læirbag

Perfect complement. Great for a really custom device setting, making it a comfortable adjustment. An app launcher with just icons would be even better for my sense of mininalist simplicity. Thanks and congratulations for the good job and concerning about basic and payment features.

Bret Hatfield

Htc One This app is awesome, love the fact that you can add a widget and all kinds of stuff. It works great without any hiccups @ all...!!? Thank you 5 stars...!!

A Google User

Could be better Customising the pages would be cool. And why does appsi auto rotate when the main settings don't alliw for it? Showing notifications in the vow would also be nice

Shivneil Janardan

Potential I don't know why none of my contacts photos come up anymore when I receive a text. Apart from that it's all good

Влад Тихонов

Brilliant Highly advisable for installation. Functionality is massive. Nevertheless, only three stars until these features are implemented: 1) using a widget must close sidebar, or there should be an option for this (doesn't work with my Evernote widget when I create a new note); 2) must have an ability to add shortcuts to Home sidebar - at least in some kind of premium paid version. Also, on my Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 there is a half of a second delay before the sidebar slides out.

Вячеслав Силин

Good idea, but... Excellent idea, very user-friendly interface, but the plugins does not start's correctely after phone start up. Must be restart the application..then it works well.

Y. Hani

Needs Improvements There's no way to hide/disable the "Home" tab, hide the text completely (leaving only the icons) or the ability to hide certain apps from the "All Apps" section.

Chelsea Collins

Was really good I liked this app a lot. I used it for several months. Then it just quit on me. It won't work anymore. Everytime I try to swipe it open it brings up my Flipboard news on my Galaxy S6. I was able to use both but this app stopped working. Kinda suck. Gonna have to uninstall. :(

A Google User

Best I have found for sidebars Best sidebar I have found... And I swear I have tried them all. The best part is the full widget support that really let's you add exactly what you need. Even with widgets it doesn't lag like competitor sidebar apps I tried.

Michael Davies

Very Good A decent app to have at your disposal on any Android device. This sidebar app is , imo, the best sidebar app available. The customisation that allows you to pretty much make it the way you want and have several screens at one plus the ability to purchase a few add ons make it a must have for me.

Hrishikesh Shahi

It works in my Samsung S Duos but unable to install in my YU YUREKA - shows error 505. Any help ?

David Castilla

Great app This is a great app, I loved it in my SGS3. But it doesn't work for me anymore. Note to devs: could you investigate the issues with MIUI launcher? I can see other users have the same problem.

David Kirsopp

Good on my galaxy S 3 Best multitadker i found. I lile mine ramsparent. And the width at 12%.If you cant get it to run, try putting device apps to default all. Or go on device settings and select update device. Somrtimes rebootong seversl times works.


Works weird... The app kinda shuts off randomly. I have no idea why or how, but the notification says that it is still working correctly. It just won't activate. When it is working correctly, its great, but it lasts for like 2 minutes.

Gabriel Chaheen

Multiple pages by swiping and ability to add widgets, feels a bit like the S7 Edge screen. It's great that the widgets are functional. However there's no way to create folders neither direct dials. Honestly, this has the potential to be the absolute best, the answer to all sidebars. I have tried over 20 or so apps. However, it's been abandoned. No update since 2013. Really a let down. Summing it up: this is the best sidebar app, except for 1) no folders 2) no direct dial. 3) widgets sometimes won't update.

Mark James Rose

Great Concept A great concept fairly well implemented. My main issue is that it crashes - and that's annoying for a sidebar loaded with my most frequently used apps. UPDATE Seems much more stable now. 4 stars!

Delane Price

USEFUL! I'm really enjoying this app! It's very easy to get used to and really functional in everyday phone use. I no longer use folders now because this is much more aesthetically pleasing for me. So far it is a great app to use.

Thomas Kaufmann

Good Idea I can't use widgets on the sidebar since the widgets won't refresh on my Nexus 4. The possibility of placing widgets on the sidebar was the killer-feature I was looking for in a sidebar... without this it is just another sidebar. The promised update is overdue for month.

Andrew Wang

Not as exciting as I expected 1. Blacklist - Disable appsi during certain apps 2. Option to disable swipe action when sidebar is opened. 2. Widgets don't update 3. GMD gesture seems better

Yossi Cohen

Wow an overlay app that don't lag! Brilliant work does not kill performance like other apps that provide an overlay! 1 bug though... entering the tile calls will sometimes make appsi stop...

Levi Parker

Hello? Great concept and I would love the app if I could get it all to work, but I can't. Being ignored by the dev so I have to give this one 1 star for now

Treyah Rae

Very Useful App. (Samsung Note 3) Widgets that I add to the homepage sometimes do not update, but other than that I really like this app. Easy access to everything. Very productive.


Was Great Good app but a major lack of support the last 6 months. Last update was December. Still waiting on an update, it's now September & getting close to a year without an update, come on man.

Dakiem Ellis

Great sidebar Easily the best I've used. My one problem is that the configuration app doesn't obey android's rotation rules. Please fix it!

Zabi Ahmed P

Widgets don't update The app is really great and the best sidebar app I have ever used. But whenever I add a widget they don't seem to update after a while. I have a clock and weather widget added to the home panel but the clock doesn't change the time neither does the weather update... ill give 5 stars if this issue is sorted out. Thanks for this great app.

the Alleycat

Seemed kinda promising initially... Exasperated. I have to say that Appsi really can hardly count as being theme-able at all, really. What's with the poor selection of secondary colors, why not a color wheel? And really, the logo, that big, up on the header is sight for sore eyes. Next, functionality, the calendar; min number of days to show is 25? Where is the logic in there? Shouldn't it be a week? Say two weeks? I can't even do month cos the slider doesn't allow 31 days. I could go on actually but nah, then i m gonna have bill ya for it.

alay paun

Good but... ...whats with the freakin' permanent notification? Really annoying. Considering un-installing. Shame because its a great app otherwise

Ardy Arman

Beautiful Very cool and beautiful sidebar. For narrow sidebars, the title's font size does not adjust to the width of same, so the title is cropped. Could you fix that, please?

sufi hasib ul hasan

it does not auto start when manually started it never stays on for long therefore useless whats the purpose of keeping this app when it never stays on for any reasonable length of time completely frustrating and therefore useless you should make it robust and stable till then i am unstalling it.

Tim DeWitt

BEST SIDEBAR LAUNCHER BY FAR Awesome sidebar. Has everything in one. Developer really put thought into the user experience and additions like the home hotspot put it over the top! Hot spots anywhere you want, any size, SO MANY OPTIONS!
