Hangar is an Android app that provides easy, relevant shortcuts in your notification drawer to your most used and relied upon apps.

This lightweight notification bar gives you convenient access to these apps from anywhere in Android while intelligently updating the priority and order of the shortcuts based on your daily use.

With the new pinned apps feature, favorite apps can be pinned alongside the ones Hangar has set. Want a fresh look on those shortcuts? Hangar now supports custom icons, letting you set a stylized theme by installing one of the many gorgeous icon packs available on the Play Store.

Hangar also keeps track of app usage statistics and includes 2 highly customizable widgets.


Features include:

• Auto-updating notification drawer shortcuts containing your most used and important apps
• Sort and display apps based on user specified weight factors
• Pin apps to always display
• Launch shortcuts from lockscreen (Lollipop)
• Support for icon packs and custom icons
• Optional second row of icons
• Blacklist unwanted apps
• Fully customizable! Change the number of shortcuts, icon color, icon size, background and more.
• Additional re-sizeable widget to launch apps
• Re-sizeable widget to view app use statistics with color coded bar graphs
• Widgets intelligently scale according to size and device

Not on LG G3 App worked well on my Samsung S4, Note 3 and LG G2. Sadly won't open and crashes on LG G3. Same on my friends G3 as well. Running lollipop.

Second row may or may not show up I enabled the second row. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's gone. I use around 10 apps daily so a second row is really needed so that I don't have 10 icons squeezed in one row. I could have tone it down to show 5 apps per row but without the second row to show the remaining 5 apps it would defeat the purpose of wanting to have the most convenient access to my 10 frequently used apps. Please look into this bug (if it's actually a bug) or tell me if I configured it incorrectly.

Graduated From Bar Launcher... ...which spoiled me by offering easy access to apps. Decided to switch to Hanger because of significantly more customizations. Thankfully the app description and other reviews expressed the wide array choices. For example; the weighted option had NO appeal to me, but it's optional! The blacklisting feature really won me over. It only took a few minutes of configuration to achieve perfection! ADDED 5th Star! Continues to work perfectly!

Carlene Kelly

Love app, but broken on LG G3 Absolutely loved this sloop, but after upgrading to lollipop breaks it. It crashes when trying to grant it permission.

Caleb Glasgow

Fast app access Only thing I don't like is that you can't take the icon off the status bar unless you pay them.

Justin Oliver

Awesome It saves me so much time, a must have app for any multi-tasker.

Robert Wade

Was Great I loved this app and it worked great, however since updating to Lollipop on my Verizon branded Galaxy S5, it no longer works. I Uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but every time I try to give it permission like it asks for, it stops responding and shuts down. *EDIT* After following the authors instructions, the app works flawlessly and is again one of my favorite apps.

Joe Lomán

I can't use it on Lollipop Since I updated my LG G3 to Lollipop hangar asks me to grant it permission. But when I click the "Grant permission" button it crashes and says "Unfortunately, Hangar has stopped". I used to love this app, but now I can't give a higher grade if I can't use it ):

Keif Tedder

Get it now A must have for anyone that use a ton of apps but needs quick access to a few.

CHOPPERGIRL AIRWAR

A good idea, but... Hangar seemed like a good idea but I never really used it. Worse, it seemed to slow down the redrawing of the desktop when returning from applications so eventually I just turned it off and rebooted. I guess I couldn't get used to application quick launch icons up under the taskbar.

William Aung Leyraud

Edited: Must have app for multitasking! Developer contacted me regarding all new fixes and it sure is back to 5 stars! Must have app for multitasking! Thanks for the great app!

Desmond Sim

Waiting for lollipop fix I love this app. Made shortcuts easier. But fail to work since updated my S5 to Lollipop.

Halo Ali

I love this app It's like having a mini homescreen of the most used apps in the notification bar. It saves me a lot of time and it tracks my most used apps which is nice and interesting

Ravish Chadha

Not working with LG G3 Worked perfectly fine with Samsung S4 earlier, but crashes with LG G3 running 5.0

Randal Toma

Conflicts with mail notification Before using Hangar, I could archive my emails from my notification screen. Now, after using HangarI can see the email hut there isn't enough room for the archive button. That is only complaint.

Xun Zhao

Very useful App Hanger has been such a useful app for quick launches. It's even better when used with Lollipop which bring the notifications to the lock screen. It's now replacing all the locking apps I have tried. Just a small glitch I have encountered: some apps are not appearing in the app list of hanger (Google maps in my case). thus no way to pin it

ilya Tsuprun

Great! But won't start on boot (the start on boot option is checked)

Keat Heng Ooi

Excellent!!! My most favorite widget. To dev, suggest to add Apps label option for Apps Widget.

Nick Brown

Awesome! After my SG5 got Lollipop it stopped working, but when it does work it is awesome! Edit: Got it fixed due to good customer support!

Gunjan Bagayatkar

Good app This is very useful and time-saver. It also doesn't require much RAM. And I especially like theming options. It accepted every icon pack I thrown to it. Launching in a Floating window is a Plus too.

Karlo Pecha

Icons doesn't update Very very nice app. It saves me so much time when accessing my most frequently used apps. I just have one issue, however. I've updated my apps and whenever these apps have a new icon, it does not reflect on the Hangar widget. Hope you guys could look into this! Thanks!

Tony Brix

Only 35 apps in widget Would rate 5 stars if it would not limit the widget to 35 apps

Robert Hall

Excellent! This is one of my must have apps.

Cory Albrecht

Lollipop Back (Was: No Lollipop) Edit: Developer has released an update that restores functionality for Lollipop so I'm rerating back to 4★. -- I loved this so on Kitkat, but on Lollipop it only shows one icon - itself. :-( I'll remark back to 4 when this is fixed.

jbroge

Hangar wont respond anymore. Used to work great

nitvit610

Crash Updated to lollipop recently and it now crashes when I try to allow permissions

Justin Coppock

The best Simple, powerful... it works.

Ha med

Well thought, well designed Exactly what I was looking for!

Aiden Masters

Just what I was looking for Easy way to have quick access to my most used applications. Can't find anything wrong with it works perfect

josue cruz-gines

Galaxy s5 Very good app

Celia Washington

Stopped working on LGG3 Works fine on HTCONE and Nexus 7. What happened?

John Geer

Awesome, perfect app Very helpful and easy to use. Love it.

Philip Ho

Awesome Works perfectly with Android lollipop! Thanks for the update!

Юрий Иващенко

Problems I met problems. The panel conflicts with the latest Chrome and sometimes sounds are switched off. If I upgrade the application before Chrome, my tablet hangs and some widgets don't show after restart. If I upgrade it before Chrome, the panel didn't start.

Android L support Broken in Android L. Does not display any apps at all

Kassam

Icon pack doesn't apply for all icons

Scot Walton

Great app, BUT started crashing recently and refuses to open. It has been that way for a while and over multiple factory resets. Hope you guys get it working again, if not have to use another similar app.

S T Chupack

Great app that solves a real problem Like most people, I have lots of installed apps but only use a handful on a daily basis. It gets tiresome paging through a launcher and who really spends the time to "curate" their home screen shortcuts? Hangar automatically gives you immediate access to the apps you use most. I wouldn't be surprised if something like this was integrated into Android at some point. Only issue I've had is the multi row notification randomly deciding not to be multi row. I prefer the desktop widget anyway - it rocks!

Nancy Laub

Updated review When I installed this, my "ok google" command from every screen stopped working. I couldn't figure it out for awhile, but as soon as I uninstalled this app, it started working again. (Note 2) that's too bad cause I liked this app otherwise. I tried it now on my note 4 & it seems to be working perfectly

Steve Thomas

An essential app! Since Hangar was released I have used it and become quite dependent upon it. This is the way that the window shade should be designed.

Jimi Sprout

Gives you full control over icons Most other apps only let you pick an icon pack at most. This one lets you change and tint. Would love this app more if you could add controls and shortcuts as well as apps.

Robert Hall

Excellent! This is one of my must have apps. Awww nuts, not working with my Lollipop update. :(

Dylan McGlothlin

WON'T WORK ON GS5 is root needed? I have not been able to use because it crashes.

Tristan Jay Tamor

Not work but i love your apps Im using note 4 when i clean in recent apps, the apps in notification are clean

Verso AF

The only sad thing is how long it took me to discover this app. Blacklisting and pinning apps (which can be automatically reordered in whichever way you want) is fantastic! This, along with Nova Launcher, has really freed me up to customize my phone exactly how I want it and it hasn't even been updated for about a year! Hope Marshmallow doesn't break it.

Martha Wal

It's broken App has disappeared from the notification bar and I can't get it back. What is a usage Stat permission and how do you grant that? Sent them an email but haven't heard back. Love this app when it works. Help!

Asaf levy

Question Very useful but how do I get it to appear at the lockscreen?

Anshul Bafna

Not upto the mark This app is good & I use it frequently but sometimes my pinned apps disappear & to fix this, I have to unpin all the apps & pin again. Plz fix this & get 5 stars

Alejandro R. Mosteo

Just what I needed Does what it says and does it well. Kudos!

Felix Rios

Very good app This app does exactly what it supposed to do

Niki Amane

Awesome app!!! Not only allows to switch between apps, not only allows to pin favourite apps, but ALSO helps to understand what app isn't needed already ? Definitely worth installing!

Luka R

LG G3 Doesn't work on LG G3

Indi Li

Awesome app!!! Not only allows to switch between apps, not only allows to pin favourite apps, but ALSO helps to understand what app isn't needed already ? Definitely worth installing! UPDATE. If it shows only one row then just swipe down from this row!!!

Mian Qin

Please fix it! Android 6.0 Nexus6 not working. Unfortunately,hangar has stopped

Christian Dysthe

The last piece in a perfect launcher setup! I do not know what I would do without Hangar. It makes my most used apps available at all times on my home screen. And it's smart so it knows what I use and how long I use it. A phenomenal productivity tool and strangely enough one of it's kind. It takes a bit of setting up but when done you are always only a tap away from where you want to be. Applause! ?

Daniel Baird

Hanger is FANTASTIC ! And I've tested and used well over a dozen of the type of apps, but I'm sticking with Hanger. It has all the features++ that I need and it's a sinch to use and very well written - it has NEVER crashed or even behaved badly or awkwardly. The paid version is a steal and well worth it.

Connor Boyce

Useful app. One problem... The app is great, however I only use it for the widget. I've noticed that there seems to be a problem with the weighting for the widget. I only want my most used apps to be displayed and my weight bias is set to 'Time spent in app'. However it displays a mixture of apps that I have used recently as well as apps that I have used the most. Is there a way to have only my most used apps shown?

Tom Jerhada

Crashes galaxy note 7 This is my favorite app. It however does not work on the new Galaxy Note 7 and causes the phone numerous crashes and restarts. Uninstalled until updated to fix this issue

Franklin Ramos

Great addition to Android UX Installed for the option to sort by number of launches. Stayed for the pin and blacklisting.

Beatrice Gatta

Crashes on configuration window I can't even try it because it crashes.

DÆM0Ñ SS

Does Wht it says, although this is for boring n lazy ppl who only use a hand full of apps

Poetry Levianny

Was great I can not running app with lollipop, kindly fix it pleaseeeee
