Hi folks,

I'm looking for an app where if I press a shortcut (from Pie specifically), it will bring up a bunch of pre-defined app shortcuts.

Simi folder works well, but the problem for me is that it positions itself oddly. Its fine if I launch it from the dock row of icons (which I actually want to replace) but because Pie is built into systemUI, it positions itself near the status bar.

I dont want something that swipes from the side of the screen or similar. I just want to press a button and have the icons pop up, preferably in a predefined location, but at least not at the top of the screen

This is what simifolder looks like (as launched from home screen)



which would be perfect, except the problem is if launched from Pie, its at the top of the screen, which is annoying.

Does anyone know of similar apps that would do this, launchable from a custom shortcut?

No but it does look good... I could make a nice UCCW widget for the apps I want to launch.

Open to other ideas too.

I prefer Zooper, but I am just in the first steps with popup widget. UCCW should work, too.
