Have any of you heard of Sidebar? You can get it from the Play Store. I just realized that you can actually use it in Ext. Power Save Mode. This allows access to any app that you desire.

Have fun!

EDIT: Well, this is interesting....I was able to test benchmarks while in EPS using the Sidebar app. I always thought that the EPS mode wasn't as conservative as I would like...take a look at these comparative benchmark results.

Regular:

EPS:

EPS:

I don't know about any one else, but I can say that I have seen more battery drain during EPS than the regular PS. Any thoughts?

Is this the Sidebar Launcher app in the Play store?

No. Sidebar Lite is what you need to look for.
