Default Add ICS Multitask button in Status bar (is this useful..??)

Preview :



how do you think about this mod? i made this mod because i have seen some users want other methods to access ics multitasker instead of key remapping..

i'm still prefer search key remapping or onscreen softkeys so i don't know whether this is useful or not.

please post your opinion or suggestion

I like it much better than having the nav bar at the bottom. I can get that extra screen space back if this were implemented into roms.

You should post a how-to so we can mod our frameworks

Default AMAZING!!

Man this is simply amazing!! Even better than what I suggested in your remap thread because this way multitask can be accessed from every where in the UI!!

Absolutely brilliant!

And as the poster before me said, now we can regain the space used by navbar at the bottom! I now set it up so that it disappears on landscape ( using your other thread ) but with this we can go full screen!

Would love to have a How-To mate

Thank you very much for your amazing efforts and mods

I'm not trying to troll or anything, but how (or why) is this better than just long-pressing home key? Am I missing something or?

I think it's kinda cool! I know I can just long press home, but I would also like to be able to do it from here.

This is actually REALLY cool! All your "useless" mods are from useless . You're a brilliant modder. Only problem with this is you can't use it when playing a game aha

I can only speak for myself, but the time it takes to long press to bring up the recent apps feels like an eternity to me. I prefer button remapping or on screen keys to the long press. I like the looks of this mod, I'd have to give a go personally to realize if I preferred it over one of the other methods.
