Nice!!

It still laggy sometimes and has some random fcs but its a good idea.

I recommend to add and option for the bar to show just the recents apps and not show that notification when service is running.

Works great on my nexus 4, but why isn't mine as big on the screen as yours? The icons don't fill the full length and are all at the top half of the screen, rather than spread out

Absolutely love this app, but sometimes it FC's or is unresponsive. Otherwise, really good slide animation and pretty good responsiveness when it works!
