Amber Thornton

Loved it till it quit Worked fine for a couple of weeks then just quit. Back to restarting my phone to go back to the home screen. Whatever.

Shriram Chakravarti

Great app! Works fantastic on lollipop. Perfect for those customising their phones. Does take a little getting used to and can be really useful!

Firsta Kencana Putri

Useless What the hell??? this app is useless. And i cant uninstall it on my phone!!! So dumb! Fckn hate thisss!!!

Dave Windecker

Absolute must have A bit more customizability would make it even better - eg different actions for gestures from each side and maybe even top and bottom half of each side. Life wouldn't be the same without this app.

Bryan Fletcher

Perfect Developer added feature for BOTH sides. Perfect!

Peter Andro

Fantastic launcher The launcher is fantastic because extremely fast and very easy to setup. Bought the license on the same day without waiting for trial period to expire. NOV 2014: after using it for a while. I am extremely satisfied with it. It's blazing fast and so easy to setup, and I previously tried therm all.

Expensive $7 for this simple launcher is too much...


Bad Can't install in kitkat

samir ajgaonkar

Nice App Very useful & best App. But does it stop functioning after expiry of trial period? How can it be continued as app shows trial license is expired.

Jenn Smith

Beware software developers with crazy license schemes. This app gets your information and transmits it over the internet

Anthony Reyes

The most down to earth I've searched similar apps and this one is best for multi taskers...but one has to throw in a few minutes to understand it.


A trial is it?

Aaron Tay

Good but... Love that you can swipe to go back to next app in lollipop. However while you can adjust height width of hotspot you can't seem to adjust position which is always centralised. That's not a good position for the hotspot.

Heiki Herman

oi oi oi mass text and instructions, but i cannot see nothing what is working

Andrei Clear

TRIAL ONLY instead use free "BACK BUTTON" app This is just a few days trial .. once you get used to it .. will turn off and make you buy it it you want to use it!! that is fine BUT warn us before we download/install/use it .. (instead you can use a free app called "Back Button" .. (on Play market has same 'U turn' arrow icon .. but white arrow on grey background in a square))

prabhu ak

Tel me how to use dis app I'm not getting dis app


Wish for double tap option I like the app and would buy when trial expires. The only function I use is back button but there is no option to double tap to go back.

Stephen Stewart

Back button app My screen broke at bottom. Couldn't use the 3:buttons at bottom. NOW I CAN GO BACK AND PRESS HOME. awesome.

firdaus wahab

Good app but! When ever i restart my phone the accesebility option gets turned off (lenovo a6000 android 5.02) please fix and i will definitely buy full version

Suri Sequeira

Brilliant idea. Thks. This is by far one of the most brilliant apps. I am surprised why the star rating is not much higher.

Sepero P

Beware Transmits information about you on the internet. If you're in an area with no internet, the app will stop working. The developer can spy on your information and your location always. There is no way to know all the information that is being collected about you. Avoid this app if you care about your security.

Haji Yusdi Haji Yussof

Worth It Very useful & convenient when multitasking. Worth purchasing and thanks for the fast reply

Danny Sanchez

This app stopped working after i updated it and i restated my phone and still doesn't work waste of your time worst app Ever do not install it

Sandra Longoria

Best gesture back, home,recents, app switcher I've found!

P Cooper

All power users: ignore the bad reviews for this app. They come from people who either don't understand what this stroke of genius does or who just want a simple button and get confused. Just look at the reviews for the paid version and you will see how much people who really use this app appreciate it: It is a perfectly working gesture launcher with unlimited configurability. I use tapping the button to switch to the last active app and simple swipes in the 8 compass directions (up, up left etc.) to launch my most used apps and to toggle system functions like wifi directy from *any* screen. I have some less frequently used functions on "swipe and return", e.g. swipe left and return to go to the settings screen to configure gestures. When the button gets in the way, it can easily be moved (hold and drag) or hidden (swipe gesture) and shown again by the same gesture or through notifications. No launcher that requires a tap or swipe to open a GUI can be this quick / efficient at performing your most frequently used actions. Also, I've e-mailed about five comments / feature request to the developers and all were answered within one or two days.

Help!!! Whenever I do that, my settings app crashes and it stays checked.


Great Edit: yeah I use the Samsung s7 edge . Bought the paid version.I would wish you could make the app support the edge of the screen without setting the offset.and I couldn't change the app colour by using the image option .wish there would be a way to change colour using gamma options to select colour .lastly,switching apps appears not to be always accurate as certain apps which show up in the notification shade tend to appear when switching to the last used app.All the same, great app
