Despite the amount of power packed inside modern smartphones, one of the most annoying and time-consuming hindrance to my productivity always seems to be the task of switching apps. On my Galaxy S3, I have to click and hold on the main button to get the multitasking tray, then scroll through the list to find the app I want. And then sometimes I get frustrated when I notice that the app wasn’t open before, which means that I have to exit to my main homescreen, open the app drawer, and then find what I’m looking for.
I’ve tried dozens of quick app launchers/switchers before, from Wave Launcher to SwipePad, and eventually gave up on them because they were either too intruding, too slow, or they felt like they were designed for Froyo. Then I came across Swapps! and although I approached it with skepticism at first, I’m glad to say I found the perfect solution for fast app switching. Let me show you why.
