Unfortunately app thumbnails appeared in 4.0, so it's not possible to see them prior to this version

I played a bit with this app today and I have to say that it is a very nice. And I only tried the free features . The only thing that makes me not to use this app is the ram consumption, over 100 mb.
OP if you can make it lighter it will be a really great switcher :thumbup:

The RAM consumption is mainly due to thumbnails saved in cache (= smoother app). I'll do my best to lower that number, or maybe add an option to let the user choose between using RAM cache or not?

Thanks for feedback

Hey I tried the free app and I would like to request some things:

1. transparent background like in stock switcher
2. Option to list the apps under each other instead of next to each other (also like in stock
3. Different position of clear and settings button. Like this:
4. Option to disable app drawer icon
5. Notification icon: isn't there a way to just keep the notification and not the icon? The space is very ugly. Swipe home button for example lets you disable the icon and has just a message in the notification bar with no empty gap...

And then I have a question: what is the + symbol standing for when I pull the last app away from the screenside?

Well, thanks for suggestions

1. Planned for next release
2. Why not, I try to develop a different switcher compared to the stock one, but I'll think about it
3. Looks like you really like the stock switcher, don't you ?
4. That's a good request, but not an easy one... I'm definitely going to look into it
5. Consider it done for next release

And finally, the plus symbol let the user know he can swipe back to show other apps. Is it too much for you?

Well, I use swipe home button to get into stock switcher, that makes it better and faster than every other switcher out there. But your app look very cool and promising. And, what lacks the stock switcher, it's customisable. Yet it is still simple and elegant.

There are two reasons why I suggested to chance the button positions: first, I think that it would look more symmetric, and second is that they would be easier to reach. Especially on my note 3^^

Oh and I found a bug: when I re-enable the notification icon, the app crashes.

My device is btw SM-N9005 (international note 3 with snapdragon 800) running on android 4.4.2 kitkat samsung firmware (leak), cf-rooted and xposed framework installed.
