Looking nice!

EDIT: Maybe just to make effect going from left to the right. It will be more "natural" in my opinion.

Nice! I love it. Whats up with the free apps thing at the bottom of the actual side panel. Its ok in the settings, but very obtrusive in the side panel. Please remove it if possible.

A few feature requests if you don't mind:
1. Ability to add shortcuts would be great.
2. Two side panels would be awesome. One on left and one on right. One would contain all the apps and one would contains starred apps, recent apps and shortcuts.
3. Ability to jump into the app info of the current running app. Maybe you could add a button for this.

Dream App!

You Might Wanna See This!

Thanks a lot for the detailed comment, now here goes :
1. I don't believe I'll remove the bottom panel as this is a free app, but on the other hand I'm thinking of removing the top panel with app name to make more room for apps.
2. Short cuts adding ability is definitely planned to next update
3. Two panels is an idea.. I'll consider it, thanks.
4. App info on running apps is a great idea! I'll add it maybe instead of the top bar

On my gs3, the Phone app isn't an available selection?
