Default [APK][SMALL APP][2.2.2] Fast App SwiTcher - FAST App For Xperia!

Fast App Switcher Small App



Hey Guys, First timer doing the Sony Small App here hope you like my app

Ever tired of doing two click just to switch apps? Or are you losing focus on what you've just read because of that black Recent App switcher background? Or that app switcher button is too far away? Not anymore with this Small App

  2. Slim Design Just Like Windows Taskbar
  3. Auto Update App List with Adjustable seconds
  4. Adjustable Number of Viewable Recent Apps
  5. Keep Order of Recent Apps For Easier Navigation
  6. Swipe Down to Refresh the List (just like Gmail) - Vertical Layout Only
  7. Ability to choose Horizontal/Vertical Layout
  8. New! You can choose Favourite Apps List Or The Entire Apps List!
  9. Pin/Unpin the Small App so it will automatically minimize after losing focus.
  10. Load at startup (For Sony JB ROM and up)
  11. Switchable App Mode (So you can have Favorite Only, or Recent Only, Or Both)
  12. Small Apps can be tagged as Favourite App!
  13. Web URL can be added as Favourite App too! Click Share on Your Browser and then add away.
  14. Context Menu for each App Listed (show App Info + Direct Add App into Favourite)
  15. Long Click Switcher Button on Fav: Change Ordering of Favourite App
  16. Long Click Switcher Button on Recent: Suspend All App Memory / Go Back To Previous App
  17. Icon Pack Support (Pro Version Only)

Requirement:
