Re: [APP][2.2+][BETA]SidePanel - Swipe from Edge to multitask

There are lots of apps like this, so what makes your app different than the others, such as GYF, Unity Launcher Swapps, Glovebox, etc? I think if you put why your app is different in the op, then more people will try it out.

Hi!

Very very nice work!!! :)

With Xperia S .55 FW there are some problems when launching apps from background. Home and Phone not working properly - SidePanel ForeClose.

I can translate it to polish if you are interested... :D

Thanks for great job one more time. :)

Pliz provide me the apk . May i have the honour to pliz send to my [email protected]. You know its common to provide free apk for xda user.

If it would have been a paid app, I am sure that nobody would have sent you an apk. I don't think that something like this is common behaviour. (Don't you know how long it takes to develop a good application? I think that we should pay the small amount of money the developers ask for.)
But as this app is a free app you can download it yourself. It can be found on Google Play.
However, I think that you are not really interested in the app. If you were, you would have read the first post. Then you would have seen where to get the app.

There are lots off sidebar-apps available but the only once that DON'T suck are the onces that are integrated into the LAUNCHER.I hate the swipezone off the sidebar-apps (the all have it) because it overlays my UI/top app (launcher/or app that is on top off the UI). No such problems with "sidebars" that are part off the launcher (like for instance: tsf shell)

Hope this sidebar-app will do better?

ps: in tsf shell (which i buy-app, i know) i can activate an app with 1 swipe movement (i don't have to scroll through "pages'') The sidebar i use is the horizontal one (i have hidden the vertical one). Looks a lot like the quick launch bar in an Apple-computer.

tested....

hey I tested the app and I guess there are some bugs:

- I have to swipe from right to left to activate the panel on LEFT side
- the high and weight of activating area is not changing
- notification icon shows also if I uncheck it in options
- grey area for activating panel is everytime&everywhere showed (should it be like this?- I dislike it) (Screenshot)
- if I open panel somewhere also settings appear (Screenshot)

Hope you can improve the app to remove that bugs!

    Other than the Open Sourced part,

    What is one advantage this has over more developed apps like Unity/Glovebox/GYF/Swapps/Sidebar etc...?

    This inspires me to open source Sidebar (Lite). I'm the developer if you didn't know. Let me know if you need help with stuff. I'd be glad to help out.

    ---------- Post added at 05:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:20 PM ----------

    Code:
    Intent taskintent = getPackageManager().getLaunchIntentForPackage(packageName.get(postion).toString());
    startActivity(taskintent);

    I was looking through the code, and noticed that you are launching the apps based on the package name. That may not be the best idea because on Android 4.1+, the Camera and Gallery apps are actually the same package name, so that will create conflicts for you.

    Try launching the app based on it's ComponentName ;)
