Feature question

I like your app, but the only thing holding me back from purchasing is a recently used apps feature. Do you have plans to add this?


Edited to add:
Nevermind, I just saw this quote from you:

Hey thanks, I have not abandoned this. I am in process to make it more useful. I lowered ram usages. Support for icon pack, unread count badges, recently used apps are added. Update is in testing so please wait.

Am I the only one whose status bar covers up some of the first app? It looks fine in the screenshots the dev has posted and no one else has mentioned it.

    Liked Ubuntu Phone? Have you seen Ubuntu Phone Edge Launcher?
    Now test Ubuntu Apps switch Launcher on your Android phone even before Ubuntu launch ;)
    Here it is Unity Launcher. A true MultiTasker's Launcher
    1. Launch Applications from any where.
    2. Select apps to pin into launcher.
    3. Change launcher bar color.
    4. Change Icon Backgrounds.
    5. Customize animation and launcher visibility duration.
    6. Swipe from left or right edge of Phone.
    For now it supports Android 4.0+ but soon support for 2.3 and 2.2 will be added.
    Much more features are coming soon.

    I completely agree with everything you suggested. I even bought the app, it seems really promising

    I bought this app and o like it, if you keep developing and adding features this is going to me awesome, my suggestions are:

    1) ability to change the order of the icons by long pressing them and moving them up/down

    2) better touch responsiveness (misses sometimes)

    3) launch other things than just apps, like activities and stuff

    Keep developing this app! It does have a lot of future!

    Me too Agree with you guys ;)
    When I started working on this I thought all of these things.
    Let me put things together,
    First I wanted Shortcuts and system setting toggles instead of apps in this launcher, then I saw Ubuntu video. So I came up with this.
    Now there are possibility for improvement like below,
    1. Making Name appear in a Popup when User touches and scrolls list up and down, See Ubuntu Launcher Video.
    2. Add shortcut and system setting icons to launcher.
    3. Drag to Sort apps list or sort by name or sort by Most clicked(Last one is done but not added for now).
    4. Apps folder just like Any other 4.0+ launcher have, Click on folder it will come up with apps in it.
    5. Quick Sms and Call overlays.
    6. Add any folder from SD card file system and access it by one click, popup contents of folder.
    7. Last one will be a Search Bar, It will have a search Icon in side bar if you click it it overlays a search bar where apps or anything can be searched. Check out Original Ubuntu launcher and you will get it what I am saying.

    These are things I have in mind to work on, so support this app to get it developed more and more. :good:
    Thinkingof making features which are in paid app for now free, I will update fee application with all paid features, new paid will have icon pack and unread count features extra, what you says guys?
