"Multi-tasking not just for ICS"

Reviewed by / Mar 09, 2012

APP CLIP is allows us to switch between apps, faster and easier

Android 4.0 ICS includes a built-in multi-tasking app. Thanks to it we've discovered the greatness of multi-taskin. However, those who don't have the latest Android version can give a try to APP CLIP. It remains active in background and allows you switch between apps from the status bar. From that quick menu you can access your app drawer, choose your "favorite" apps or add handy shortcuts (quick launch list) to the apps you use most.

Actually you can even create shortcuts accessible from your status bar: scroll down the status bar and tap on the app shortcut. That easy. One of the feature we liked most is the gesture control: you can launch just by swiping your finger from right side of the screen. The app has been fully integrated with ICS interface and it's tablet-friendly.

In a nutshell, a simple app which is easy to understand and which will make you more efficient regarding apps management. Recommendable.
