A simple widget that displays your most recently used applications in a grid. Blacklist apps you don't want showing up and style the widget to match your home screen theme (IAP).

This app makes use of the Usage Stats API introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop. You will be asked to enable access to Usage Stats upon first run.

Please let us know if you find any bugs. Thanks!

I want to try this app but it is incompatible with my Note4 (Android 5.0.1) used in Macao.

Sorry to hear that.
Does your Note 4 have an 'Apps with usage access' option in device security settings? Near the bottom?

Love the idea but haven't actually tried it yet. One question/request...would it be possible to have these in a regular homepage folder?

That's something to ponder. I'll put some thought into it, thanks for the idea.

Thank you. My reasoning is that I like to keep my homepage fairly clean/simple/minimal. The widget is a little much, but if I could have all those apps behind just a single icon it would be fantastic.

Either way, good work. Android FTW

I just pushed an update to Google Play (v0.4) that allows for a 1xN grid. So you could have a tall column then shink it down to one home screen space, making it vertically scrollable.

Icon label color is based on background color. Dark backgrounds have white text and light background have dark text. If the background is transparent then text color is based on the launcher wallpaper.
