I was looking for an app which will allow me to launch app with single tap which I use more regularly. I had tried one or three apps before this but was not satisfied with those after some search I found this app on Google play store so I decided to try it and thanks to my decision finally I got the app which is fitting best to my requirement.
I have configured this app as per requirement which you can see in below screen shots which I have taken from my Xperia Smartphone.
After which my Xperia's home screen looking like following. (It has transperent staturbar support for sony devices.)
I really liked the innovative user interface of this app specially the Bubble support and arrangement of drawer. Another facility which I am using is you can keep multiple apps in single bubble and addition to that you can keep different apps for single bubble i.e. one with single tap and one with double tap. It also has gesture support to launch app which means if I swipe to top I can open application and same for other sides. You can hide any app from menu and keep its shortcut on bubble which helps you to maintain your privacy.
I have been using this app since a month now and very happy with its performance till now as I haven’t noticed any more battery consumption or lag in performance. One more thing that other people who takes your Smartphone keeps struggling to open the app they want and ultimately comes to you to know how to open it which I feel one more layer to your security.
Hope you liked this simple but useful post. Try this app and let me know your experience with it in comment section below also do not forget to add app names in comment which you more better than this.
