App Swap brings instant access to apps with QuickSwipe

App launchers on Android are quickly becoming more popular and a number of similar apps are being released. We recently updated the Aviate app by adding search and here's another one: the App Swap. This productivity app developed by Emmanuel Boudrant, is a simple app that acts as a drawer containing your most favorite and frequently used applications. Apps on the drawer can now be found more easily and quickly. No need to swipe several pages of your apps when you can simply swap up from your navigation bar or home screen to show the App Swap launcher. You can also swipe from the bottom edge of your phone or tablet even without the navigation bar.
