FAQ

Why I cannot uninstall Sidebar Launcher?
The "Lock screen" feature requires activating device administrator, you have to deactivate it in security settings before installing.
There are two ways to uninstall it:
1. Open Sidebar Launcher, go to settings page, find the "Uninstall" option. (Recommend)
2. First, go to "System settings" -> "Security settings" -> "Device administrators" deactivate "Sidebar Launcher", then uninstall Sidebar Launcher in a normal way.

I have tried this app, very cool. Recommend it. But I have a few suggestions:

1. make it more colorful. I don't like this black style
2. more function cards, e.g. weather,

Just bought this, seems very nice up to now, i can see how it will be helpful.

I have one question though, once you have added the apps / shortcuts you want, is there a way to the re-organise them as you may want certain ones at the front etc..

Not sure if i have missed how to do this, maybe you can already, i dont seem to be able to find it easy though if anyone can help?

Up to now great app though, i like it.

I have another request. I travel a lot. A card with the time of different location would be great. Do you guys have any plan to support similar feature? Please let me know if it could be implemented in near future.

Thanks a lot. You guys are rock. :victory:

Thank you for your support!
It doesn't support 'sort' function in the apps/shortcuts card. You can delete them and add them manually again with the order you want.

still really liking this app, is there no way to take the app out of the notifications drop down though? i don't want it to be there, it only takes you to the settings anyway, which i can easily get to in the app its self.

can this be fixed as i dont see any need for it to be there?

Also sometimes my apps seem to take a bit longer than i'd expect to start from the sidebar, has anyone else found this?
